Six Flags Magic Mountain, currently second to Cedar Point for the most number of coasters in a park, will take the record back in 2011 with the addition of two brand new coasters and one rethemed attraction.
The two new coasters will consist of America's first Intamin Zac-Spin, Green Lantern, and the previously delayed Mr. Six's Dance Coaster, which will debut under a different name. Green Lantern will be constructed near the existing Batman: the Ride and Riddler's Revenge coasters, and will reach a top speed of 37 mph after dropping from a height of 107 ft, as well as flipping riders through 825 ft of green and black track in two minutes. The kiddie coaster will replace the Sierra Falls water slide between Thomas Town and Bugs Bunny World.
In addition, Six Flags will revamp Superman The Escape, whose trains will soon launch backwards up the tower, and besides repainting the track blue, red and yellow, will rebrand the ride as Superman: Escape from Krypton. Riders will be able to see the station for the first time, and will reportedly be launched back up to 100 mph. And according to park officials, after the ride is opened for a few months, one of the sides will be turned forwards again as to allow riders both options.
Six Flags Magic Mountain has had 16 coasters the past few seasons, and will now reclaim the record from Cedar Point with a total of 18 coasters in 2011 as well as continue the ongoing battle. Coincidentally, the three coasters will debut in time for Six Flags Magic Mountain's 40th Anniversary as well as Six Flags Inc.'s 50th Anniversary.
