Tatsu Review

We're here at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Today's ride we'll be reviewing for you is Tatsu. Once you pull down the restraint with the rubber vest, you fold into flying position, and away you go! On the lifthill, you get used to flying position, look at the view, blow a snot rocket, but all the lifthill fun is coming to an end as you are about to drop. You twist down and away you go! The first drop is fun. Not amazing, but fun. After that, you soar up into a corkscrew. The corkscrew feels very graceful and smooth. After that, you turn into the Heartline Spin. The Heartline Spin is very much like the corkscrew, very floaty and graceful. Its not intense like on Kumba, Montu, Raptor, etc. Its very Silver Bullet like. But I can forgive Tatsu since it's Heartline Spin is on a Flying Coaster. After that, it's off into the Eggturn. It's also floaty and graceful. You get a cool view of Six Flags Magic Mountain from it, but then we're going to swoop back down into a quick turn. After that turn comes the Best Part of the ride. PRETZAL LOOP!!!! As you rise up, you must prepare for the power of the Pretzal Loop. Down you dive. The Gs are pouring on you you are falling head first before leveling out on your back. Experiencing 5 gs, you say, This is not floaty and graceful at all! But then you rise back out of it and into a Zero G Roll. The Zero G Roll is fun. After that, its into Tatsus fake helix of death. Hell, on Tatsu, It should be the Pretzal Loop of death. That's more likely to kill you than this fake helix of death . But before you rise into the brake run, you get a tiny pop of airtime. Now don't be thinking, "YAY!!! AIRTIME!!!! IT'LL BE AS FORCEFUL AS MAGNUM XL 200!!!!" cause if you do, you will be very dissapointed. It's not ejector air like on Magnum, It's Millenium Force Air. Breif floater air that only lasts for a second. Then off to the station you go. Hopefully you won't get stuck on the brake run for 6 min. Tatsu is a very floaty graceful ride with the exception of the pretzal loop. I'm not saying it's forceless, but aside from the pretzal loop, it's all very floaty. Like you're flying. I highly reccomend riding this during your visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain. (Get there early if you don't want to wait.)
