Full Throttle (FT), will be appearing at Six Flags Magic Mountain in 2013 and adding to the skyline with its record breaking 160 foot loop and Top Hat.

The ride includes three launches, two forward at 70 mph and one in reverse, a vertical loop, a dive loop, a tunnel section and a Top Hat tracing the outline of the loop.

The ride is to be built by Premier Rides, who also built Superman Ultimate Flight at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The trains will include three cars containing six persons by car, for a total of 18 riders per train. At one time, two trains will be operating on the ride. The cars will also include lap bars, so no uncomfortable shoulder restraints and more freedom to scare the poop out off you when taking on the record loop.

Remember this element awhile back? Well, ThemeParkReview are over in China this month on their China 2012 Tour and Robb Alvey has been looking forward to ride since the 2011 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA).

Speaking of which, the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2012 will be held during the second full week in November (conference: 12-16, trade show: 13-16) will be held at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida.

What’s so odd about this picture, you ask? Not much, just the fact that this coaster is constructed out of wood and banks at 90 degrees!!

The element is called a high-five hill, where riders could stretch out their hands and almost high-five riders in the other train.

If you feel like you want to check this coaster out, head to Happy Valley (Wuhan, Hubei), China and search for Dauling Dragon.

Divertical at Mirabilandia, Italy, opened earlier this year in June. It’s designed by one of the leading roller coaster designers, Intamin AG.

2013 seems to be the year of Out Doing the Best in the coaster industry. Remember the Outlaw Run video I posted, the wood coaster with 3 inversion? Well this one, called Iron Rattler, is a hybrid, wood supports with a metal track, and features a unique Barrel Roll and four overbank turns. I have nothing more on the ride, rcdb.com hasn’t updated yet, but I will soon.
