All Wood, Sent from the Future.

Head into the bunker and get ready to launch into the front line of battle on this blazingly fast drive into sci-fi combat. Future war has turned the world into a bleak, burned out wasteland and you are living the aftermath. Apocalypse is the all-wooden roller coaster that rips through this ominous desert on an ultra-fast track. You’ve gotta ride like the wind to escape.

You made it past the security checkpoint and high tech monitors explaining your assignment. Now pile into the industrial cars and launch onto a track that is all wood and all muscle. Get ready to dodge explosive wrecks and maneuver some of the most insane drops and swift turns the future will ever produce.
The first hill is a blisteringly steep 100 feet. Alright, one down, four more kamikaze drops to go. You’ll pummel that track at a staggering 52 miles per hour, facing plummets, gut-wrenching swerves, and adventurous obstacles.
You won’t believe how fast this wooden brute runs as it takes a series of daredevil pivots and shoots through mist-filled tunnels —just in time for more total mayhem on the track. But hey, it’s all in a day’s work for a soldier from the future.
Face your fears with the lights off! Your favorite thrills in the dark on Apocalypse.

If you dare, climb aboard APOCALYPSE, a journey that begins at Six Flags Magic Mountain and transports you into a desolate dark future to battle alongside a post-apocalyptic legion of soldiers. With five belly-flopping hills and six high speed banked turns, APOCALYPSE combines state-of-the-art technology with the classic heart-pounding thrills of a wooden roller coaster. Get ready for an eruption of sights and thrills that drop and turn you straight into the confines of artificially intelligent lethal machines, in one final attempt to save human kind. Minimum height requirement is 48".

The arrogant scientists, so eager to glimpse into the inner workings of sub atomic particles, flipped the switch of the newly constructed particle accelerator. Faster and faster the magnets flung the material through the miles of underground tunnels. The sounds from the generators, almost deafening, filled the air with their screams. Faster and faster and then, it happened. The collision. Unpredictably, it wasn't matter that was split in the collision. Instead, the fabric of space unzipped and unfolded upon the laboratory. All the theories the physicists predicted never accounted for an opening in to a universe where the laws of physics never existed, as we know them. And now, our universe has fallen victim as all the lines between the two worlds become blurred.

The apocalypse is upon us. All of the modern day conveniences have been obliterated and the world is reverting to a more basic, primitive time. Survival of the fittest is the law of the land, and there is only one question needing you have what it take to survive the terrifying tracks of Apocalypse?
