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

History

On August 30, 2012, Six Flags Magic Mountain announced the addition of Full Throttle.[2]

The highest peak was topped off in April 2013.[3]

Full Throttle opened on June 22, 2013.[4] It featured the tallest vertical loop when it opened, with a height of 160 feet. This record was later matched by Flash at Lewa Adventure in 2016, and Hyper Coaster at Land of Legends Theme Park in 2018.

Full Throttle is the only roller coaster in the world to feature track on top of a vertical loop.

In November 2013, seatbelts were added to Full Throttle, along with Goliath.[5]

Design

Elements

The ride's theme is "YOLO" and "living life to the fullest," hence the name "Full Throttle." Riders are held in with lap bars. The ride starts by launching riders forward into the 127.1 foot wide, 160 foot tall vertical loop. Next, the train goes through a banked turn and enters a sharp curved dive loop into the tunnel formerly used for the park's monorail system. This dive loop inverts. The train is then slowed to a stop, and an automated voice counts down from three. Riders are then launched backward partway up the curved drop. The train then rolls forwards through the tunnel again and is launched forward once more, entering the 160 foot "top hat" before dropping into the final brake run.

Trains

2 trains with 3 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 18 riders per train.
