Road Runner Express is a Vekoma family roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. It was moved from the former Six Flags New Orleans, and opened to the public on May 28, 2011.

History

It was originally named "Mr. Six's Dance Coaster", and was supposed to open in the Cyclone bay area of the park in 2010.[1] After several delays, the opening date was moved back to mid-2011 and its construction site was moved to the "Bugs Bunny World" section of the park. Another canceled name for the ride was "Little Flash", from the DC comics series.Citation needed
