Six Flags Magic Mountain, the “Thrill Capital of the World,” today launched its record-setting 19th coaster with the official debut of Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers in the revitalized Bugs Bunny World.
Anchoring the newly refurbished children’s area, Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers features an action-packed adventure with plenty of drops and thrills that kids and parents can enjoy together. With trains designed as race cars, riders will experience the exhilaration of racing to the checkered-flag finish line. The Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers coaster addition brings the total number of coasters in the children’s area to four, more than any other theme park in the U.S.
The new Looney Tunes Kids Club show also made its debut in the Carrot Club Theater. Featuring “Club President” Bugs Bunny, this audience participatory game show is sure to be a hit with fans of all ages.
“We are excited to showcase our newest coaster and newly revitalized children’s area this year,” said Bonnie Rabjohn, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor park president. “We are staying true to our thrill promise by adding yet another coaster to our collection – this time a fun adventure for our littlest thrill seekers. No doubt we will be creating lots of magical memories at the ‘Thrill Capital of the World’.”
With the addition of Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers, the “Thrill Capital of the World” will boast a world-record 19 roller coasters, including the new Full Throttle, which debuted in June 2013 as the world’s tallest and fastest looping coaster; X2, the world’s first 5th dimensional coaster; Tatsu, the world’s tallest and fastest flying coaster; Goliath, the giant among giants; and Viper.
