If you've ever wanted to strap yourself into a chair to be raised hundreds of feet in the air and then hurled at high speeds on some of the world's most extreme roller coasters, then southern California's Six Flags Magic Mountain is the place for you. Thrill seekers flock to this Looney Tunes-themed amusement park to get their adrenaline pumping and to test their nerve against incredibly fun yet daunting rides. The park's coasters have been breaking records for speed, drops, and overall innovation for years and have successfully thrilled and terrified millions.
Tatsu, one of the park's newer roller coasters, entices riders with the tagline, "Fly at the Speed of Fear." Rotating the chairs from 90 degrees to parallel with the ground, the ride simulates flight in a two-minute experience of loops, drops, and speed.
Six Flags Magic Mountain also boasts the world's first fourth dimension roller coaster: X2. The seats rotate 360 degrees forward and backward, resulting in terrifying headfirst drops and unrivalled suspense.
In addition to being renowned for its coasters, Six Flags also offers an assortment of rides ranked from "mild" to "max" for all levels of riders, as well as fair-style games and a collection of eateries. Whether you're a kid looking to hang out with Bugs Bunny or an ardent adventurer looking to defy gravity with Superman, Six Flags Magic Mountain promises to provide an exciting day.
