Let the power of Possessed compel you onto this dueling-tower suspended impulse coaster. Enjoy new levels of excitement as the twisted, inverted steel scream machine launches you both forward and backward as you dangle beneath 704 feet of U-shaped track. Possessed puts all who challenge it under its spell to ride, and ride, and ride again. 

  • Opened May 23rd, 2008 – was the first suspended linear induction impulse coaster in the Northeast
  • The Linear Induction Motors (LIMs) send riders rocketing from one tower to another, taking them to new heights of velocity.
  • Possessed riders will twist 360 degrees as they ascend 185 feet up one end of the massive structure then rise at a 90-degree angle in reverse at the opposite end.
  • The coaster has endured four name changes in nine years, operating as Superman: Ultimate Escape (2000-2003 at Six Flags World of Adventure in Aurora, Ohio), Steel Venom (2004-2006 at Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio), Voodoo (2007-2008 at Dorney Park), and Possessed (2009-present).

  • A shoulder harness secures each rider over the head and across the chest. The shoulder harness has seatbelt that connects to the side of the vehicle.
  • Due to the nature of the restraint, this ride may not accommodate guests of a larger size. A test seat is located at the ride entrance which can be used to evaluate proper fit and comfort prior to waiting in line.
  • Guests must have a minimum of three functioning extremities.
  • Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of three functioning extremities if the guest has a normal center of gravity and lower extremities are sufficiently strong to maintain proper riding posture under the dynamic conditions of the ride. Amputations must be at the knee or below.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, broken collar bone, full arm cast, braced arm cast, or full leg cast are not permitted to ride.
  • Guests who do not have appropriate center of gravity must have sufficient lower extremities to ensure the ride restraint system adequately restraints them.
  • NOTE: Guests with any prosthesis must consult with Ride Services prior to waiting in line or riding.
  • Alternate access is available at the ride exit. Riders will have to take several steps, on their own or with the assistance of a companion, and be capable of elevating themselves up into the seat.
