Full Throttle is a steel launched roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. It was built by Premier Rides and features two forward launches and a backward launch. It took the place of the former log flume, Log Jammer, which was removed after Halloween 2011.

It featured the largest vertical loop until the opening of Flash.

Design[edit]

The ride starts by launching riders forward into the 160 foot tall vertical loop. Next, the train zig-zags, and enters a sharp curved drop into the tunnel. The train is then slowed to a stop and launched backwards. After making it only partway up the loop, the train rolls forwards through the tunnel again and is launched forward once more, entering the 160 foot foot "Top Hat" before entering the brake run.
