Heart-Pounding Heights: Exploring the Thrilling Roller Coasters at Six Flags Magic Mountain

For the hard-core amusement park crowd, there’s nothing quite like a good roller coaster to satisfy your craving for thrill. You seek those long drops, high speeds, abundant airtime, and adrenaline rushes.

The only thing that can top an extreme roller coaster ride is the opportunity to ride a bunch of them all in one place. 

Welcome to Six Flags Magic Mountain—or, as we’re known around the world, “The Thrill Capital of the World.”

With a whopping 20 roller coasters, Six Flags Magic Mountain also holds the title of “Most Roller Coasters in One Theme Park” in the Guinness Book of World Records.

There are more intense roller coasters within the 260-acres of Six Flags Magic Mountain than anywhere on the planet. Thankfully, this Six Flags park is located in Valencia, California, just north of Los Angeles, so you won’t need to go far to get in on the action.

Sit down and hang on tight—we’re about to cover the heart-pounding heights and gravity-defying drops found on ten bucket-list-worthy roller coasters at the Thrill Capital of the World.

Twisted Colossus

This innovative hybrid coaster combines the classic wooden structure of the iconic Colossus coaster with a modern steel track and dual racing coasters. Brace yourself for steep banks, relentless rolls, and spirals woven into the stunning white wood. Be sure to raise your hands high as the tracks intertwine—you’ll pass the other train on the opposite track so closely you can nearly give the other passengers high-fives. 

Full Throttle

With record-setting height and speed, Full Throttle certainly lives up to its name. Three separate launches crank you up to 70 miles per hour in mere seconds as you soar through the world’s tallest and fastest race up and over a unique ‘Top Hat’ feature that traces the outside of the 160-foot loop, where you’ll experience significant air time and a breath-taking view of the park. But perhaps the most terrifying element is that you’ll do this one both forward and backward before it’s all over.


This flying roller coaster offers an utterly unique way to ride and face your fears —face down. You’ll feel like a dragon in flight as you whiz through a daunting pretzel loop, corkscrews and the breathtaking views Tatsu has to offer of the park and surrounding coasters. There’s nothing between you and the ground as you zoom around the track at top speeds and right into a zero-G roll. Do you have what it takes to conquer this fierce beast?

Get ready for an cutting-edge sensory experience, with free-rotating seats on an iconic coaster designed to break all the rules! X2 is the world’s only 5th dimensional coaster that spins 360-degrees forwards or backwards independently on its axis for a wildly unpredictable ride. You’ll be pushed to the extreme as you plummet 200 feet at speeds up to 76 miles-per-hour and guided through not one, but two ultra-rare “raven turns”—half loops that turn into sheer drops.


There are giants, but there’s only one Goliath. To slay this beast, you’ll take a staggering 255-foot drop at 85 MPH, ranking this beast in the top 10 longest, fastest and steepest drops in the world. Get ready to conquer your fears right from the start with a near vertical 61-degree first drop into an underground tunnel shrouded in total darkness. The second half tests your bravery with a series of high-speed banked turns, camelback hills, huge spiral curves and “zero gravity” drops that will leave you screaming for more.

SUPERMAN™: Escape from Krypton

To blast off like SUPERMAN, you will launch at speeds up to 100 miles-per-hour in seven seconds flat—in reverse. Until SUPERMAN: Escape from Krypton, such record-breaking speed and acceleration had never been achieved in a thrill ride, let alone backward. You begin with a 90-degree climb to a soaring 415 feet in the air! Then hold on tight, because once you’re totally vertical, you’ll experience the thrill of utter weightlessness for 6.5 seconds before making your descent back to planet Earth.

Race at intense speed as you zoom through inversions and high-speed twists on this one-of-a-kind floorless train design, the first of it’s kind in Southern California. With no track over your head or under your feet, riding Scream is exactly what it feels like to fly—at 60+ miles per hour. If the twists and turns aren’t enough to make you scream out loud, the loops probably will. You’ll be completely upside down seven times on this extreme roller coaster.

BATMAN™ The Ride

Soar freely through the skyline of the DC UNIVERSE on this state-of-the-art inverted coaster. Your gravity-defying journey will take you through two vertical loops, two single corkscrews, and a one-of-a-kind heartline spin with zero-gravity force, all with your feet dangling in the open air below. BATMAN The Ride will transport you into the thrilling world of THE DARK KNIGHT, with an electrifying ride that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.


No one will blame you if you need to take a seat after standing up to the relentless mischief of THE RIDDLER™’s Revenge. You’ll quickly find that gravity is the real villain with a ride on the biggest loop and the most upside-down action for any stand-up coaster. Vertical loops and a double corkscrew make a winding and utterly unpredictable track.

WONDER WOMAN™ Flight of Courage

Embark on an incredible journey of heroic feats, propelling through dives, banks, rolls, and turns designed to challenge the bravest of thrill seekers. WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage is the tallest and longest single-rail coaster on the planet!
