Best Rides at Six Flags Magic Mountain

These are the top ten rides at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California.

The Top Ten

1 X2

I am an adrenaline junkie. I love the feeling of my stomach dropping, my heart racing, and my head pounding. I love Magic Mountain because it makes me feel so alive. I've gone more times than I can count since I live only 30 minutes away from the park. Yet every time I've gone, I've never managed to get on this ride. Last time I went, about a week ago, it was my first time going on X2. May I say that it was my best experience ever on a roller coaster. There's just something about not knowing where you're going that makes it so much more exciting. It was even better because I was at the front of the coaster. X2 is definitely my favorite ride now. - Supernatural

I rarely if ever get scared on roller coasters, but this one I do. Going up that hill backwards, knowing your seat is about to flip head first down the hill is adrenaline pumping. The only ride in the world I actually feel fear.

This is quite possibly the most intense coaster I've ever been on! The first drop is insane! This is the ONLY coaster at Magic Mountain that I was a little scared on. Once I did it, I felt like I could conquer the other coasters in a breeze. Easily the best ride at Magic Mountain!

I went on it. I still don't know what happened but I love it.

2 Tatsu

Tatsu is awesome. It's like your flying. The best part is when you go up the huge loop. The loop has so much force it's incredible. The next day I just kept saying to my mom and dad "I want to go on this ride again".

Tatsu was one of my very first roller coasters along with batman and I really loved it! I almost bailed out at the last second, but I got on the ride, and I didn't regret it. It was awesome! The lines are very long, but it is worth it! You should really try it if you haven't gone on it yet, you really will not regret it!

TATSU is so fun there is lots of rides that are fun but this one is the best because unlike some coasters you are liens down on this and it made you feel like a bird. The pretzel loop was also very scary go on it!

3 Goliath

It is the best ride in the world I can ride that over100 times in a row that is how great it is I love it so much I can marry it.

I find this ride to be incredible smooth yet still a huge thrill for coaster fans

Goliath is my most favorite roller coaster of all time, my most favorite ride is lex Luther's drop of doom

This was my very first ride.

4 Twisted Colossus

Best ride ever. It's long and it basically goes twice. I got to talk with the dude in the other train and both trains raced. It is also the smoothest ride I've ever been on. The hour+ wait is worth it

This is the best ride the drop is awesome and it was my best time on a rollers-coaster all the turns is so fun if you go to magic mountain go on that ride first

This ride is awesome! I mean, when the two sides are going together, it looks so cool!

Went on this ride for the first time today for my birthday and it is up there with rides like Tatsu and X2 as one of Magic Mountain's finest coasters. Alan Schike has designed another masterpiece of roller coaster design and RMC is one of the best roller coaster manufacturers in the business.

5 Full Throttle

This is my second favorite ride behind Tatsu. The acceleration on the launches is amazing. I just enjoy thrill rides that don't bang your head and this is one of them!

Best ride ever! I can't wait to go on it again. This ride id a must at Six Flags!

Best ride in the park. Biggest loop in the world. Check. Backwards in a part then crazily shoots you forward. Check. Insane drop. Check. This ride has got it all. Definitely worth the wait

Full throttle is the GOAT

6 The Riddler's Revenge

Your STANDING on this ride unlike the other sitting ones! It definitely was scary yet fun

The riddler's revenge was allot of fun. It was very fast and you were standing up! Very cool ride

This is one of the best stand-up ride in the world. Great order of inversions.

Hurts a little if you're a guy but very cool.

7 Scream

Whatever I like about this coaster is the inversions mostly the unique 4th and 5th inversion shaped like a smile

The best ride EVER

This is the extreme version of batman. It is smooth and gives you a feeling like non other!

Best ride ever and it has tons of twerls and twists.

8 Superman: Escape From Krypton

Awesome ride, and it stops at such a high place that you can't really see so much of people which makes you less scared, but when the coaster blasted off at full speed, I wasn't ready and also, the ride is very loud when you are standing around it, but not when you are on it.

So fast and once it starts going up, you don't realize how high it actually is. Short ride but amazing.

This ride has a great theme there's not a lot of places where you can launch 100mph backwards? The best ride at the park.

The feeling of going 100mph is just AMAZING! I was so scared the first time I went on it because after going on excelerator at Knott’s (which felt insanely fast)... I didn’t know what to expect. This ride went so fast, you couldn’t even tell. It feels like you’re not even moving! It felt like we were going backwards for at least a minute. Once we went up that lift, my stomach dropped and it was the best feeling ever. Definitely a ride you should go on

9 Batman: The Ride

Best ride ever! So fun and smooth

I used to hate roller coasters before this ride. My friends forced me on it and I loved it! I went on it 4 times in a row haha. Definitely a must ride!

This ride is mostly a pattern of inversions. I love this ride it is like an inverted model of the riddlers revenge!

It does loops corkscrews and all kinds of other stuff but it goes by really fast

10 Green Lantern: First Flight

This ride is awesome you go pretty fast but it kinda hurts :(

There's lots of green lantern coasters in the world but this one is the best

This is my fourth favorite ride because their is so much pain in the ride

Hurts a lot, don’t recommend

The Contenders

11 Viper

Even after all these years Viper still offers one of the most thrilling rides in the park especially for slightly younger thrill seekers looking to step it up. It holds up very well next to SFMM's newer monsters and the lines are almost non existent in the off season. Definitely recommend going on it at night, it's got a unique silhouette and the drop, triple loops and double cork screw are amazing and it doesn't rattle you half as much as some of the older steel coasters would. Still my top favorite ride in the park

If your planning to ride the other rides at magic mountain then you should go on viper first because it gets you really warmed up for the rest and it's right were you come in

The third tallest vertical loop in the world. It is one of my most favorite rides at the park! After that middle stop those 4 inversions are the best.

Amazing. Why 11

12 Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom

Today's your luck day today your life changes forever and this may very well be the high point of your insignificant existence

Love the Freefall ride attached with Superman, like Great Adventure attached to Kingda ka

This is my sixth favorite ride because it is so fast going down and it goes down as if I am going on a rocket

My favorite ride ever. I could go for hours and never get bored of the view and adrenaline rush

13 Apocalypse

This ride has intense speed shoots through three tunnels one that flies through the station and you feel a little blast of fire. My most favorite ride at the park

Not too big, but certainly not too small and kicks up an unusual sense of speed. It also has the best theming out of any other coaster in the park. - Mcgillacuddy

Best ride ever! It's fast bumpy, it just makes you have butterflies in your stomach. It's AWESOME.!

Super fast and amazing roller coaster. Definitely earns a top ten place at magic mountain.

14 Colossus

This one is my first ever rollercoaster and it was the best coaster in the park

There's nowhere else where you can ride a wooden coaster backwards!

15 Revolution

One of the best at the park. The first time I rode this I got surprised with the loop and tunnel. A good ride for the park

So rough and fun

16 Ninja

If your a thrill seeker in training---I would definitely recommend this ride... But true dare Devils may find this ride boring. Have fun

A great speed for a suspended coaster. It is a cool suspended ride that dodges trees.

This is my fith favorite ride because it's fast and scary and so much force

17 Dejavu

Anywhere else where you can go 3 inversions backwards?

Not as good as superman but awesome

RIP Deja Vu :(

Well I haven't been in that ride but I'm going...i been watching videos about that ride...i think that ride is amazing.

VR headsets OP!

19 CraZanity

New for 2018.

A good regular coaster with a gold rush at the end. That's probably where they got the name.
