Full Throttle is a launched steel roller coaster. The attraction opened on June 22, 2013 at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Ride historyEdit

On Halloween 2011, the Log Jammer log flume closed. Construction began shortly after Log Jammer's demolition. On February 20, 2012, a construction update was shown with the old monorail station and Log Jammer completely removed. In March, details were leaked to the Los Angeles Times. Finally, on April 4, 2012, the attraction's name was trademarked.

The coaster was announced to the public on August 30, 2012. They also announced plans for a themed area to welcome their 18th coaster. Construction walls went up in mid-November 2012 in Six Flags Plaza. One of the park's restaurants and their Looney Tunes kids theater were closed. Early track pieces had arrived by December. After Christmas, Superman: Escape from Krypton and Goldrusher closed. Goldrusher will reopen with the ride, and Superman: Escape from Krypton reopened in January. 

By April 12, 2013, Full Throttle's entire track had been completed. The ride immediately began testing, and showed successful. In late May, Six Flags Magic Mountain confirmed on Twitter that Full Throttle was cleared to open on June 22, 2013. On June 22, 2013, the attraction opened at the park.

Ride synopsisEdit

Guests are launched from 0 to 70mph out of the station and into the 160ft loop. Riders are then taken into a highbanked curve to the right and another left as they approach the ride's dive loop. Then, the train enters another tunnel, in which the train gets launched backwards up the dive loop partially. Then, the train accelerates forward once again up a 160ft top hat above the first loop. The train descends down the top hat and into the final brake system.

TriviaEdit

RecordsEdit

  • The attraction has the world's tallest loop, at 160 feet.
  • The ride has the second tallest inversion in the world, behind GateKeeper at Cedar Point. GateKeeper has a 170-foot diving loop.

Coaster of the WeekEdit

  • The attraction was the Coaster of the Week from the week of March 31, 2013 - April 6, 2013.
  • The Wikia forgot to add a COTW the following week, so Full Throttle was considered the winner for also the week of April 7, 2013 - April 13, 2013.
