Marketed as "the world's first single track quadruple launch racing coaster", West Coast Racers is a racing coaster like no other with two side-by-side tracks and four individual launches. The ride experience includes two complete laps, side-by-side airtime hills and overbanked turns, plus multiple crossovers and inversions. Unlike most racing coasters that feature separate tracks, Six Flags Magic Mountain's West Coast Racers is a two-part ride experience, with a "pit stop" halfway through the ride. Fitting with the ride's theme this immersive show scene was designed and produced by world-famous West Coast Customs, so riders can get an inside look into one of their shops.
