Six Flags Magic Mountain, the self-proclaimed “Thrill Capital of the World,” announced Tuesday its newest pint-sized roller coaster.
The Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers is intended to anchor the revitalized Bugs Bunny World, becoming the fourth roller coaster in the children’s area, more than any other U.S. theme park, the statement read.
“Sitting in miniature hot rod race cars, riders will enjoy an action-packed adventure with plenty of drops and thrills on a roadster-themed racetrack,” according to a statement from park officials.
Children and parents can ride together as they take a sprint around the grand prix-style track. Joining 11 other rides and attractions, from flying airplanes to pint-sized trucks and trains, Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers will debut in early summer.
“We are excited to introduce Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers to our coaster collection at Six Flags Magic Mountain,” said Bonnie Rabjohn, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor park president.
“This time it’s a fun adventure for our littlest guests,” she said. “The mini-coasters in Bugs Bunny World are the perfect training ground for aspiring thrill-seekers at the ‘Thrill Capital of the World.’”
With the addition of Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers, the Valencia theme park will boast 19 roller coasters, more than any other theme park on the planet, including the new Full Throttle, which debuted in June 2013 as the world’s tallest and fastest looping coaster; X2, the world’s first fifth tallest and fastest flying coaster; Goliath, the giant among giants; Viper and more.
