Six Flags Magic Mountain announced today that it will be adding a new drop ride to the park in spring 2012.

Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom will be the world's tallest vertical-drop ride, according to a statement from Six Flags Magic Mountain.

The ride will be attached to both sides of the Superman: Escape from Krypton tower.

The attraction is named after the DC Comics super villain and Superman's greatest enemy.

"You'll be pulled to the top of the 400-foot tower, experience a brief pause then drop at speeds of up to 85 mph," a statement on the theme park website reads.

"After the five-second freefall, you'll be stopped by a sophisticated magnetic braking system just a few feet from the ground."
