Testing begins on Full Throttle roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain

Six Flags Magic Mountain has begun testing Full Throttle, the ambitious new roller coaster that will debut at the park later in summer 2013.

Having "topped off" the enormous 160-foot vertical loop that is Full Throttle's centerpiece in April, the park is now running trains around the coaster's circuit. However, MiceChat reports that there is still significant theming work to be carried out before the ride debuts. No firm opening date has been set by Six Flags Magic Mountain as yet.

Full Throttle's loop is notable in that its single spine will have track both on the inside and outside – the outside serving as a top hat element and the ride's last hill. The ride's circuit will also boast a number of other elements, including a total of three launch sections.

The addition of Full Throttle means that Six Flags Magic Mountain will hang on to its "Coaster Capital of the World" crown for at least one more season, with a total of 18 roller coasters - more than any other park on the planet.
