Magic Mountain's new Tatsu roller coaster to debut Saturday
Written by Robert Niles
The Daily News in Los Angeles is reporting that Tatsu underwent its California state safety inspections on Monday and that the new B&M Flying Coaster will debut at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia this Saturday.Tweet
There are also a few quotes in Gene Tong's story quoting some inarticulate theme park website editor, who had just stepped off a five-and-a-half hour flight from New York. Here's how I wished I'd said it:
Many people around here have either forgotten or never knew that Magic Mountain was built to be a family park. The Newhall Company wanted some attraction that would distinguish it from all the other suburban developments going up around L.A. County in the late '60s and early '70s -- something that would make people willing to live north over the pass from the San Fernando Valley -- and Newhall decided that a family theme park was the ideal pick.
(Sorry for being so mealy-mouthed yesterday, Gene.)
