“Six Flags is known worldwide for the biggest and best thrills, bar none, and the record-breaking CraZanity ride delivers a crazy, high-adrenaline experience very different from anything else we have in our unparalleled thrill ride arsenal,” said Magic Mountain President Neal Thurman.

 

The ride debuted to confetti and an inaugural ride by members of the Santa Clarita Valley Boys & Girls Club.

“[They] have been our official first riders for every new ride launch for as long as I can remember,” said Thurman.

 

CraZanity is a part of a revitalization of the park’s back area and is the cornerstone for a newly themed boardwalk area.
