Six Flags Magic Mountain hopes to push the pedal to the metal with their new coaster, Full Throttle. The multi-launch steel coaster, which will be designed by Premier Rides, will be the park's 18th roller coaster, more than any other park in the world. It will also take place of the Log Jammer log flume that was taken out months ago.
Full Throttle will set out to claim the worlds tallest vertical loop at 160 ft. That occurs just after a 0-70 mph launch. The ride stretches out with a high speed curve after the loop, which then ascends towards the plaza that's home to Superman: Escape from Krypton. A dive loop drops into a tunnel, once used by the park's old monorail. The train then comes to a complete stop and backwards launches back up the dive loop. A second pass through the tunnel takes riders back up to 70 mph before a hill that outlines the top of the loop, which then drops back into the final brakes. At 70 mph, the ride will be the fastest ride with a vertical loop, tied with Six Flags Fiesta Texas' Superman Krypton Coaster.
