The Most Extreme Theme Park on the Planet
I’m taking my first coaster trip to the left coast. California’s known for Disneyland, but it’s also home to what’s possibly the most extreme theme park anywhere, Six Flags Magic Mountain. Magic Mountain boasts 15 roller coasters with an another one, Terminator, coming in 2009. Just a few years ago, the SoCal park had more coasters than Cedar Point.
More Twisted Steel Than Anywhere on Earth
With a total of 35 inversions (loops) in the entire park, Magic Mountain’s steel lineup has the most inversions of any park by far. (Next, is Six Flags Great Adventure with 21.) Included in the inversions, is a roller coaster landmark. Revolution has the world’s first modern vertical loop. The recently enhanced X2 is the only 4th dimension roller coaster and it’s said to be an unbelievable experience. Tatsu is the most impressive looking flying coaster around. Superman – The Escape was formerly one of the fastest coasters with a top speed of 100 mph. Lastly, Riddler’s Revenge is a record-holding stand up coaster and Goliath boasts the 6th longest drop in the world.
I’ll be visiting the park this Thursday. Anyone have any ride tips or general park tips for a first timer? Leave a comment below.
