The world’s fastest rollercoaster

 

I’m not a huge theme park fan myself (unless it’s a water park!) but I know some of you reading love them, so I feel obliged to share this bit of news. Full Throttle is the latest ride to open at the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park in Valencia (Los Angeles), California – and the 18th rollercoaster at the park! It claims to be the tallest and fastest looping rollercoaster in the world.

Full Throttle

The ride has a 160-foot loop which takes riders upside down and there’s even a section that goes backwards. Those who brave Full Throttle will find themselves going from 0 to 70mph in two forward lurches and one backward lurch.
