As they appeal to everyone and have a way of finding a special place in our hearts as they fight off the dark and nasty criminals that plague the worlds we do not live in. But indulging in our favorite superhero does not have to stop at watching the Superman movie for the tenth time in one week, as there are so many new ways you can experience and get closer to your favorite hero. One being making a visit to your local theme park and hopping on one of the many superhero-inspired rides.
