Six Flags Magic Mountain is a park of thrills. If you love fast, up in the air rides, or if you have teenagers who do, this is the place for you. Many of the attractions have a minimum height requirement of 48", but there is also a kids area for the little ones in your family.
Three Must-See Attractions at Six Flags Magic Mountain
X2 - The seats rotate 360 degrees on this popular ride that is 3,610 feet in length and travels up in the air the equivalent of 20 stories at 76 mph. Add to that a light show, music, and other sound effects, and you are promised an unparalleled spin.
Superman – You'll sit with another 13 brave ones and in seven seconds will reach -- in reverse and going up -- a speed of 100 miles. Once you are 415 feet in the air, there will be no way but down, to which you will plummet at 92 miles per hour, face first, feeling just like Superman.
Twisted Colossus – Whether you had a prior chance to go on the iconic and now closed wooden Colossus or not, riding Twisted Colossus will allow you to be at the landmark location and inside the structure that is the most recognizable in the entire park. You can pay tribute to Six Flags Magic Mountain's history and at once face your fears on this new ride.
