Park's Newest World Record Coaster -- FULL THROTTLE -- To Change Skyline Of Six Flags Magic Mountain

VALENCIA, Calif., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Magic Mountain today hoisted the final piece of steel onto the world's tallest and fastest looping coaster, FULL THROTTLE, completing the "Top Hat" feature of the ride. Unlike traditional coasters, this triple launch coaster will launch riders up and over a first-ever "Top Hat" that traces the outside of the world-record loop, towering 160 feet.

FULL THROTTLE will be located near the front of the park in a newly themed five-acre section where videos, music and special lighting will extend FULL THROTTLE'S energy and excitement. With this addition, Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Thrill Capital of the World, firmly holds the coveted "Coaster Capital of the World" crown — with a total of 18 roller coasters — more than any other theme park on the planet. FULL THROTTLE will open in early summer.

To begin their journey through the park's distinct mountainous terrain, riders are loaded onto sleek black and silver trains, sitting two abreast, and are suddenly accelerated from zero to 70 miles-per-hour in the first of three launches, experiencing their first inversion and thrill of navigating inside the world-record 160-foot tall loop. Riders then enter into a high-banked curve to the right and then to the left as they approach the second inversion — a Dive Loop that drops them rapidly into a special-effects tunnel. While in the tunnel, the train is dramatically decelerated and stopped, only to be 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 the "Top Hat" that traces the outside of the World Record loop, where riders will experience significant air time and a breath-taking view of the park before dropping back down, rapidly decelerating and taking the final 180-degree turn to the left and returning to the station where riders can catch their breath. 

FULL THROTTLE is the perfect addition to the park's coaster collection, joining other adrenaline-pumping coasters, including Tatsu — the tallest, fastest and longest flying coaster in the world; X2 — the world's first and only 5 th dimensional coaster; Apocalypse — the next generation of wooden coasters; and Goliath — the "giant among giants" mega coaster. 

Six Flags Magic Mountain is located at 26101 Magic Mountain Parkway, in Valencia, north of Los Angeles off Interstate 5 at the Magic Mountain Parkway exit. The park opens daily at 10:30 a.m. For complete operating days and hours, and for more information call (661) 255-4111 or visit us online at www.sixflags.com/magicmountain.
