USA day 2 - Six Flags Magic Mountain

22 Jun - Celebrity Hotel, where we will be staying for the next 3 days, is a small cozy boutique hotel. Located just off the Dolby Theatre, it is just a short walk from famous attractions such as the Hollywood walk of fame. Guest staying in the hotel will be treated like a celebrity, with its own kitchen and dressing table.

Wasting no time, we set off for our first coaster amusement park of the trip, Six Flags Magic Mountain. As we did not buy the fast pass, we have to be careful in selecting the rides to queue. In the end, we go with our gut feeling and choose the coasters which are huge, tall and looks exciting to ride on.

Introducing Tatsu - 3,602 feet of blazing track. 62 miles per hour. 263 feet in plunges. Ready to take on Tatsu?

Green Lantern, First Flight is a rather interesting ride. Though it looks compact and friendly, it can really give its riders a scare! A GREEN LANTERN must be someone who has the fortitude and willpower to overcome great fear.  Face your fear through 825 feet of twisted vertical track.

Up next, Goliath. Got a need for speed? Goliath has your answer. Towering 255 feet above earth, this massive steel superstructure hits speeds of 85 mph, making it one of the fastest and tallest roller coasters around.  Enjoy a 3-minute, high-speed adventure over 4,500 feet of steel track.

The newest coaster to the park, and we are there on its opening day! Full Throttle is a one-of-a-kind dual launch coaster which will take the coaster experience to the next generation as riders face a never-been-done-before launch up and over a Top Hat that traces the outside of a world-record loop — all while travelling through the Park’s distinct mountainous terrain.

After experiencing all these awesome coasters, what's the coaster at Singapore Universal Studio? =p
