Tatsu to fly into Magic Mountain
Get ready to fly at the speed of fear next year...Today, Six Flags Magic Mountain has announced their long anticipated flying coaster, Tatsu. In true Magic Mountain tradition, this coaster is the worlds tallest, fastest, and longest flying coaster. The ride comes from renounced designers Bolliger and Malibillard as the "X-treme" park's seventeenth thrill ride, making the park once again, coaster capital. Tatsu will take riders on an epic layout as the coaster takes riders soaring over 170 feet in the air as the tallest flying coaster on Earth. Then, riders are dropped down 111 feet and reach speeds of sixty-two miles per hour for the fastest speed on a flying coaster. As soon as riders emerge from the station on to the lift hill, they journey across 3,602 feet of track. On that journey, riders will encounter four mind-blowing inversions. Including a 124 foot Pretzel Knot/Loop, 103 foot Flat Spin, ninety-six foot tall Zero-G roll, and a 360 degree inline twist over the park's famous Revolution coaster. These ingredients would make this ride three minutes no rider would ever forget.Tatsu, which is the Japanese word for Dragon, will open in the park's Samurai Summit area for the 2006 season. Tatsu will mark the park's 35th anniversary.
