Goliath is a steel roller coaster made by Giovanola of Switzerland. The hypercoaster is located in the Colossus County Fair area of Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California and is promoted with a sub-tropical theme that is characterized by ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization. The ride is nearly identical to Titan at Six Flags Over Texas. Its differences from its Six Flags twin is that Goliath lacks the 540-degree upward helix on Titan prior to the mid-course brake run (Goliath simply banks left to the brake run instead) and Goliath is also slightly shorter than Titan.During a brief period from its opening on February 11 to May 13, 2000, Goliath's 255ft opening drop was recognized as the longest and fastest (90.2 mph) on a closed-circuit roller coaster in the world. Millennium Force at Cedar Point eclipsed these records when it opened on May 13, 2000 with a drop of 300ft and speeds of 93mi/h.Ride experienceLeaving the station, the train makes a nearly 180 degree right turn. The train then ascends the lift hill, reaching a height of 235ft. Ascent slows toward the top of the hill, a safety feature that reduces stress on the chain; it is also an attempt to reduce positive g-forces and increases rider anticipation. The train begins accelerating down the initial 255ft drop, into an underground tunnel, reaching a speed of 85 MPH. Upon exiting the tunnel, the train heads upwards into a banked right turn that towers above the roller coaster Twisted Colossus. After completing the turn, the train heads down another drop, flattening out to pass by the onride camera. An airtime hill and banked left turn (rather than a helix on "Titan") follows into the mid-course brake run. The train is decelerated quickly and makes a hard left turn out of the brake section. Another 180 degree banked turn directs the train into a 585 degree, descending helix. Then, the track turns upwards and banks left. After an ascending right turn, the train reaches the final brake run.

Superman: Escape from Krypton is a steel shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. When it opened in 1997, it was the tallest roller coaster in the world, and its speed of 100mph was tied for the fastest with Tower of Terror II, a similar roller coaster which opened two months earlier at Dreamworld in Australia. These two coasters were the first to utilize Linear Synchronous Motor technology to propel vehicles to top speed. The park originally intended to open the ride in 1996, but the opening was delayed because of several issues with the launch system. The ride was closed in late 2010 for refurbishment, and it emerged in 2011 as "Superman: Escape from Krypton". The refurbished ride featured new trains which face backward, speeds of up to 104mphand it was painted with a new color scheme. As of 2013, Superman: Escape from Krypton has the third-tallest structure, the fifth-fastest speed and the third-longest drop in the world.

Valencia, CA 91355

Apocalypse is a wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. It is located in the Cyclone Bay section of the amusement park, on a plot of land formerly occupied by the Psyclone (1991-2007), Shockwave (1986-1988) and La Vibora (1984-1986) roller coasters. Apocalypse is currently the only wooden coaster operating at Magic Mountain, as Colossus was transformed into Twisted Colossus.HistoryTerminator Salvation: The Ride (2009—2010)Apocalypse was originally announced as "Terminator: The Coaster" but was later changed to suit the then-upcoming Terminator Salvation movie. It debuted to the media on May 21, 2009, and opened to the public two days later. Magic Mountain spent $1 million adding the incongruous Terminator-factory-turned-safe-house theme to the wooden coaster, mostly in the pre-show queue areas. The original storyline featured a series of videos encouraging riders to "join the resistance" and help fight the Terminator robots.Apocalypse (2011—present)Late in 2010, Six Flags announced that as part of its post-bankruptcy corporate restructuring, it would be moving away from its intellectual property licensing agreements, outside of those involving DC comic book characters, Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters or Looney Tunes cartoon characters. Accordingly, rides such as Terminator Salvation: The Ride, which had been branded under those agreements were re-themed in a generic fashion. On January 8, 2011, the roller coaster began operation as Apocalypse. The debranding removed the animated Terminator robots from the queue, forcing the park to re-shoot the pre-show videos as well as change all signs for the ride. The new storyline is based on the premise that riders are survivors and must head into a bunker to prepare to battle. Apocalypse retains the existing pyrotechnic and fog effects from the previous theming.
