  • Road Runner Express opens at Six Flags Magic Mountain



    Six Flags Magic Mountain was kind enough to invite us to the opening of their 17th coaster "Road Runner Express". The ride is located between Bugs Bunny World and Whistlestop Depot and is a great addition to the park.

    Ride Sign


    Ride Station. The Desert Southwest theme of the Road Runner cartoons is well represented here.


    The theme is well done throughout the ride area




    The theming in the station is subtle and playful, just what you would expect from "Acme".


    Close up of the ride sign


    The extended queue shows some of Wile E. Coyote's evil plans






    And the actual coaster design


    I think Disney needs to have a coaster like this, perhaps naming it after an obscure character from a cancelled cartoon?


    Wile E. is setting up for some kind of dastardly deed


    Some nice murals have been created to support the theme


    Watch out for the Anvil


    Wile E. Coyote would like to think RoadRunner is oblivious, but we know better




    Since the coaster trains are themed to shoes (this coaster was moved from the New Orleans park) applicable theming has been added to the trains, and it works.


    The obligatory ride safety information. The ride has a 36" height requirement which makes it fun for kids and adults!!


    There is an extended queue area, which I'm sure they had to use today


    Park Management poses for a picture in front of their 17th coaster!!!


    The toons came out to help open the ride!




    A quick ribbon cutting ceremony




    And the ride is open!!!




    The first train of public riders!!




    Our good friends from Theme Park Review were there as well!!!


    The ride in action






    The ride queue quickly filled up after the ceremony


    Wile E. Coyote wants you to come out and ride his ride!!!


    Thanks again to the park for having us out. We'll be back soon for Green Lanterns opening!!!

    Looks a lot like Gadget's layout. Good theming though considering it's Six Flags.

      It is Gadget's layout. This is a very, very common "off the shelf" coaster better known as a Vekoma Roller Skater. You find it at quite a few theme parks. I'm surprised the "If Six Flags ran Disneyland" thread isn't all over this.
      Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

        Looks like probably the only coaster I could go on at Six Flags. LOL

          WHAT always sucks to me is the theme is good but if they only put a little more money into it then there rides could look Fantastic but its better theme than about 90% of the other rides....
          Happy Halloween!!!
