Moderate Thrill Rides at Magic Mountain
48 inches (1.2 m) is tall enough to ride all of these:
- Apocalypse: It's a modern ride with the look of an old school wooden coaster
- Colossus: A twin wooden roller coaster, once the tallest of its kind in the West
- Gold Rusher: It was Magic Mountain's very first roller coaster and it's still a fun ride
- Goliath: It starts with a 255-foot drop into a dark tunnel, at 85 miles per hour. Read a full review.
- Lex Luthor Drop of Doom: The world’s tallest vertical drop ride (400 feet high), dropping at speeds of up to 85 mph
- Ninja: A steel-railed coaster with the cars hanging below the track
- Superman Escape from Krypton: It reaches 100 miles per hour in just 6 seconds, throwing you skyward and leaving you weightless for a moment before you drop (thus the "escape" part of its name). In 2011, the slightly re-named ride will feature trains running backward instead of forward as they have since 1997
- Revolution: If you're into theme park history, this was the first looping roller coaster ever built
