The fifteenth addition to Six Flags Magic Mountain's world class coaster collection, Goliath Jr. became the "Giant Among Kids Coasters!" In 2008, Goliath Jr. was renamed Percy's Railway as the surrounding area was upgraded to Thomas Town. In 2011, it was renamed again, Magic Flyer, as the Thomas Town theme was removed.

Magic Flyer is the perfect launching pad for young thrill-seekers. The gentle hills and pint sized thrills are perfect for young riders who some day aspire to conquer the larger coasters.
