After significant delays, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Valencia, California, has debuted the latest addition to its coaster arsenal, West Coast Racers. This Premier Rides coaster features two tracks that are actually one, twisting in a Mobius strip design just like the Magic Mountain's Twisted Colossus. It's nonstop action as you slam from one turn, one twist, and one dip into the next, seemingly testing the limits of the soft, over-the-shoulder "seat belt" restraints that keep you from flying out of the car. I guess better late than never. For discount tickets to Six Flags Magic Mountain, visit our officially authorized Six Flags Magic Mountain tickets page. Watching from the street, none of these hills will intimidate anyone. While certainly not an extreme ride, it does look like a fun coaster that would slip right into the roll of a family thrill coaster if not for the 54" height restriction. The race covers two complete laps, multiple airtime hills, extreme high-banked turns and exhilarating over/under near misses. West Coast Racers is a quasi Möbius launched roller coaster from Premier Rides. The pit stop needs some decorative work, which is one reason why Six Flags prohibited us from recording any on-ride video today.

With identical trains to Full Throttle, this coaster will have similar capacity issues and tight quarters getting guests in and of the train quickly and efficiently.

Three trains run on the track. I've given this park a lot of crap over the years but I have to give credit where it's due, this does look like a nice addition that was perfectly placed in an area of the park that badly needed renovations. Arrangement: 3 trains with 2 cars per train. The area also includes the park’s popular wooden coaster, Apocalypse, and soon-to-open refurbished go karts, Pacific Speedway.

Then the initial launch doesn't smack you in the mouth the way that many other launch coasters do. Also placing my bet now that SF will outdo themselves and go down to mostly single-train operation after one year instead of two. Then the ops team will have reloaded that train during your first lap, so that it is ready to dispatch as soon as you hit the pit stop, allowing you to get through it faster than the Red Bull F1 team.

I know SFMM gets a lot of flack from enthusiasts, but I've got to be honest: Based on what Disney appears to have planned, SFMM's likely got a better superhero ride than Disney will next year, and it appears they've now got a better Fast and Furious ride than what Universal came up with. There are four total inversions, including three zero G rolls and a zero G stall. Six Flags Magic Mountain this morning opened its long-delayed new racing coaster to Six Flags members. I was there for Season Pass holder's "Technical Rehearsal," and they were dispatching one train with twelve riders about every 120 seconds...for a massive hourly capacity of about 360. They should at least off-load one train while loading another, but the station is far too small for that.
