• Full Throttle Opens to the Public at Six Flags Magic Mountain


    VALENCIA (CNS) – Full Throttle, billed as the world’s tallest and fastest looping roller coaster, opens to the public today at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

    The ride reaches 70 mph on the first of three launches, which also includes a world-record 160-foot loop, according to park officials. Riders later enter into a high-banked curve to the right and then to the left as they approach the second inversion, a dive loop dropping rapidly into a tunnel.

    While in the tunnel, the train is dramatically decelerated and stopped, then suddenly launched backward up to the high point of the dive loop. After a momentary pause, the train drops and is magnetically launched a third time, racing out of the tunnel and through a high G-turn to the left.

    Riders then race up and over a “top hat” that traces the outside of the world record loop, before dropping down rapidly, decelerating and taking the final 180-degree turn left into the station.

    Full Throttle is located near the front of the park in a newly themed, five-acre area that includes day and nighttime entertainment, two new food locations and a new shopping area.

    Full Throttle is the 18th roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain, more than any other theme park in the world, according to park officials.
