Terminator ride announced
Six Flags Magic Mountain, Valencia, California, will add a new wooden rollercoaster for the 2009 season. Terminator: The Coaster will be the park’s 16th coaster.
The debut is scheduled to coincide with the release of the Terminator Salvation film next year and will introduce fans to a new universe inspired by the film’s post apocalyptic setting.
The $10 million coaster bearing its name will be supplied by Great Coasters International (GCI) and feature a loading station “fly-thru,” state-of-the-art sight and sound package and unique queue line and on-board entertainment elements.
Beginning with an ascent up a 100ft lift hill, CGI’s Millennium Flyer coaster trains will zip through five belly-flopping hills and six high speed banked turns over 2,850ft of track to create a ride that delivers the acrobatic thrills of a modern roller coaster while retaining the nostalgic look and feel of a classic “woodie.” It will be located in the northwest corner of the park, next to Déjà Vu.
