Magic Flyer is a Bradley And Kaye kiddie roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. It was built in 1971 along with Gold Rusher. When it first opened, it was known as "Clown Coaster". In 1985, the ride was given the name "Wile E. Coyote Coaster until 1998. Next, it was renamed "Goliath Jr." after the park's new hyper coaster. In 2008, it was again renamed to "Percy's Railway" with Percy as the front car & his Troublesome Trucks as bonus cars. When the park re-themed that section of the park in 2011 as Whistlestop Park due to Six Flags filing for bankruptcy, it was again renamed "Magic Flyer".

According to a maintenance worker from Magic Mountain, this Bradley & Kaye coaster came from Beverly Park, where David Bradley installed his first prototype coaster at the park in 1946. So it is possible that Magic Flyer is the original 1946 prototype.
