After last night’s online chat with Jennifer McGrath, I felt the responses
given with regard to seating choice on Superman the Ride was left unclear.
So I emailed Jen directly (our email exchange appears below) to learn that
when Superman opens with the park on April 9, no queue or row selection
changes will be made from previous years.
Once they implement the VR option, a decision will be made at that time
what, if any changes to seat selection will be made.

Q. If my understanding of the online chat is correct, until the VR is
installed, the queue and seating choice on Superman remains the same as in the
past, where people choose their row. Correct?
A. Regarding queuing and seating, Superman the Ride will continue seat
selection as it has had in the past.
Q. Once the VR becomes activated, what is the plan for seating? Will
people still be able to choose their row, regardless of whether they want the
optional VR device?
A. As discussed, Superman the Ride Virtual Reality coaster will open this
summer and we will provide more information about the loading process as
we get closer.
Q. I totally understand that SFNE will continually monitor how it’s
working (or not working), but what is the plan for when the VR is first set in
place later this summer?
A. Several of our other properties will be premiering their Virtual
Reality coaster prior to ours. As always, we will look to our other parks for
best practices and will ensure we provide the best possible Virtual Reality
experience for our guests.
