Scream! is a steel floorless roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. The ride was the park's sixteenth coaster when it opened in April 2003. It is a Floorless Coaster installation from Bolliger & Mabillard.

History

On November 14, 2002, it was announced that Scream! would be coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain.[2]

Scream! opened on April 12, 2003.[3] It is located in the back end of the park near Twisted Colossus and Goliath and is situated on a former parking lot site. The ride has minimal theming. The parking spaces were not removed, and some are still visible beneath the ride, in a similar fashion to Medusa at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Scream!'s slogan is "Ride out loud!"

In early 2015, Scream! was repainted with blue track and orange supports. Previously, it had a blue track with yellow rails and pink supports.[4]

Design

Elements

The ride features five consecutive inversions: a 128 foot tall vertical loop, a 96 foot tall dive loop, a zero-g roll, and a 78 foot tall cobra roll. A set of interlocking corkscrews follows soon after. The layout of Scream! is a mirror-image clone of Medusa at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Scream! features a pre-drop, a feature designed by Bolliger & Mabillard to prevent strain on the lift chain.

Trains

3 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train. The trains are floorless, allowing riders to see the track beneath their feet.
