Six Flags Magic Mountain unveiled a new ride for 2018 Thursday, Aug. 31.

But, as its name suggests, the ride Crazanity is not for the faint of heart.

Six Flags Magic Mountain’s new pendulum ride, Crazanity, will open in spring 2018.

Crazanity, which was announced in a special online event, will be the world’s tallest pendulum ride when it opens in late spring in the newly themed Boardwalk area of the park.

Enhanced bumper cars, renovated attractions, dining, games and shopping are also planned for the new Boardwalk.
