Ninja

The black belt of roller coasters whips you into submission.

There’s a reason Ninja is known as “The Black Belt of Roller Coasters.” This stealth assassin is a suspended swinging roller coaster. There are only four of this kind in the entire U.S. and you’re about to ride one of them. You’re hanging from the track, which on this insane ride is above your head. Shoulder harnesses secure you in place but don’t expect to just sit in one place—you’re going to be swinging all over, a full 90 degrees each way.

The whole ride sits high on Samurai Hill, overlooking all of Six Flags Magic Mountain, but there’s not much time to enjoy the view. As you shoot down the snake-like steel track you’ll grip the hillsides and blast through the trees swiftly, slicing through the landscape. Ninja pivots with precision as you narrowly miss tagging land and water, whipping around at 55 miles per hour.

Your whole body will swing out to the sides as you take winding snake-like turns at nearly 4G. In fact, once this warrior begins its run there’s hardly any straight track at all. But remember your training ninjas, as you cut through the air like a sword, slinging from side to side in a seamless, smooth lightning-fast flow.
