Howdy, I’m back.

I went on lots of roller coasters at Six Flags Magic Mountain, but one of the stand-out coasters is Tatsu, a flying coaster. First, the stats. It has a height of 170 feet, but a drop of only 111 feet. It goes 62 mph, has a track length of 3,602 feet, and has 4 inversions. From start to end, Tatsu lasts for 57 seconds. This includes the drop to the brakes. Tatsu is the world’s longest, fastest, and tallest flying coaster. It also features the tallest pretzel loop on a roller coaster at 124 feet. The ride is themed to the flight of a dragon. This can be seen from the entrance, which shows a large dragon holding the entrance sign. Your ride experience starts with an S-bend out of the station, then climbs the lift hill. Since this is a flying coaster, you lay on your stomach, so you get a good look at the ground. If are afraid of heights, this might be the scariest part of the ride. Then, you drop to the right and enter a corkscrew. After this, you turn around and go into a zero-gravity roll. Then you turn to a high-banking degree and enter the famous pretzel loop. This element flips you on your back, and I suggest you brace yourself. Then, you fly into an inline twist. After going through some more turns, you hit the brakes. Overall, I would rate it a 10/10. It gets long lines, but It’s worth it. I will see you next time. Bye!
