We're not sure how fast bullets go but this ride at the Largo, MD, Six Flags hits 73 miles per hour. Following on the footsteps of two other Superman rides, the Superman - Ride of Steel for this Six Flags park was their fastest and tallest to date and the third megacoaster to be produced by roller coaster manufacturing giant Intamin AG. The Ride of Steel first give you a bird's eye view of the park as you get hauled to 200 feet above the ground where on a clear day it's possible to see the Washington Monument. The 205-foot plunge over the precipice is at more than 70 degrees and is followed by five more hills and two helixes, but what's the point of us describing it? Check it out for yourself-
