Riddler's Revenge is a steel stand-up roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA.[1] Opened in 1998, Riddler's Revenge set stand-up coaster records for height, drop, speed, length, and the most inversions on a stand-up coaster. All five of these records surpassed those of Chang (now Green Lantern), which opened at Kentucky Kingdom the year before.
