Full Throttle Opens June 22nd at Six Flags Magic Mountain

Six Flags Magic Mountain has announced that Full Throttle will open at the park on June 22nd.  That's just over a week from now, so not much longer to wait!

The multi-launch coaster has been testing regularly lately, and that means that we've been able to get a look at the coaster.  Full Throttle launches in such a short space that it appears as though there will be a lot of hang-time in the massive vertical loop due to speed, but the trip after the loop and before the next launch is really very fast.

You can check out some recent video of  Full Throttle testing from various angles in this video, also where the screen cap above came from.  It's got some interesting pacing for sure, with a full stop and delay before the backwards launch, I'm interested to see how this one turns out once it is open!
