Tatsu

Rule

Six Flags Magic Mountain

The world's tallest, fastest and longest flying coaster, Tatsu is the perfect compliment to Six Flags Magic Mountain's world-class roller coaster collection. Suspended beneath the track, in a "horizontal to Earth" flying position, riders on Tatsu launch from high atop the park's Samurai Summit and traverse a 263-foot elevation change spanning four separate areas at speeds in excess of 62 miles-per-hour. Tatsu's 3,602 feet of blazing red, orange and yellow twisted steel track is barely visible, being intertwined through Magic Mountain's mountainside. While riding the flying roller coaster, passengers encounter sudden plunges, huge sweeping spirals, stomach wrenching loops, sharp dives, and high speed banked curves, all deliberately designed to enhance the ultimate sensation of flight.
