James Fay / Kelly Fay and family at Magic Mountain.

Susan Fay, Lisa Fay and Bart Fay with their guests accompanied Kelly Fay and myself, James Fay to Magic Mountain for a day of fun in the sun. It was the perfect day. Kelly never screamed so loud (not even during child birth). The kids (Susan, Lisa and Bart) all had a great time at Magic Mountain.

These pictures might take a while to load. Please be patient.

Riding Goliath roller coaster at Magic Mountain

Goliath at Magic Mountain -- 85mph and a 250+ foot drop -- NASTY!

Goliath -- The Big Drop!

Goliath, the coaster GIANT at Magic Mountain, takes riders on a 3-minute adventure beginning with a near vertical 61 first drop into a 120 foot-long underground tunnel shrouded in total darkness. You then emerge at 85 mph climbing 100 feet above the mighty Colossus before heading into a series of intense high-speed banked turns, camelback hills, huge spiral curves and "zero gravity" drops. Looming 255 feet in the air the blazing orange track of Goliath sits high above the Six Flags Magic Mountain skyline.  This was a great day for me and my family. Magic Mountain is a definite rush, Goliath was awesome, in fact we rode it six times. If you live in California you really need to plan a day in your vacation plans for Magic Mountain. Here is a link for information on Magic Mountain Directions.

Here is a link to Magic Mountain's season pass and the current Magic Mountain prices. You really need to go if you haven't already.
