West Coast Racers, opens to the public on Thursday, but the park this morning hosted a media day so that we could get our first official on-ride videos of the new Premier Rides racing coaster.Six Flags' Magic Mountain's latest coaster,
I reviewed West Coast Racers when it opened to Six Flags members and passholders last month. Another ride today just strengthens West Coast Racers' case as an all-around fun ride with great action throughout.
Though some are looking at the ride's modest stats (top speed of 55 mph and a max height of 67 feet) and calling this a family coaster, I think your family would need to include nothing but coaster junkies for that description to fit. While West Coast Racers does not hit you with intimidating height or speed, the ride pulls some impressive Gs, especially in the spaghetti bowl. Couple that with a butt-kicking High Five element right out of the gate, and this ride might scare off some rookies... but it should satisfy any veteran thrill seeker.
West Coast Racers anchors the park's new The Underground land, which includes the wooden coaster Apocalypse as well as two counter-service restaurants, Chicken Coupe and Twin Charged Tacos. (Neither were open early this morning, so I'll leave those reviews to others.)
