Full Throttle Featured On Good Morning America
The Full Throttle roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain was featured on Good Morning America: Weekend Edition this morning. The brand new roller coaster, complete with a world record-breaking 160 foot tall vertical loop, was one of two coasters they profiled, and as luck would have it, I was invited along for the ride.
A few weeks ago, I received a call from Six Flags Magic Mountain. They told me that Good Morning America was coming to profile Full Throttle and they’d like for me to ride along with them and help show off the coaster. I was flabergasted…of course I would!
After arriving at the park, I was introduced to Rachel Smith. In addition to being Miss USA 2007, she is also the co-host of ABC’s On The Red Carpet and covers the Pop News segment of Good Morning America every Saturday:
After getting mic’d up, we started talking about Full Throttle. Then we took our seats on the coaster and she got to experience it for the very first time. I think she liked it! We ended up riding it three times in a row. After our third ride, she polled the rest of the people on the coaster for their thoughts. The train was filled with people who had been waiting in line out front for the park to open. By this time, the park had opened for the day and people were running to get in line for Full Throttle, many who would be riding it for the very first time. Here is the GMA video from our ride on Full Throttle:
I’d like to thank Six Flags Magic Mountain for providing this opportunity to represent them. I’d also like to thank Good Morning America and Rachel Smith for making the experience both fun and memorable. I had a great time!
