Six Flags Magic Mountain Makes History with Record 20th Coaster
VALENCIA, Calif., July 14, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six Flags Magic Mountain, the "Thrill Capital of the World," in partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, makes history with the debut of WONDER WOMAN™ Flight of Courage, the world’s tallest, longest single-rail coaster, and a never-before-achieved milestone as the park’s record 20th coaster—the most at any theme park on the planet. Unlike any other ride experience at Six Flags Magic Mountain, WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage propels riders single file on a nearly two-minute journey up a towering 13-story, 87-degree first drop and soaring at speeds up to 58 miles-per-hour over 3,300 feet of track. Inspired by the power of WONDER WOMAN herself, the record-breaking coaster features five intense elements, including three dramatic inversions, through a series of dives, banks, rolls and turns. WONDER WOMAN Flight of Courage opens to the public on July 16, 2022.
