Magnum Force

Magnum Force was a triple looping rollercoaster which operated at Flamingo Land from 2000 to 2005.

The ride was designed by renowned manufacturer Anton Schwarzkopf, and was originally owned by German showman Rudolf Barth. He toured the coaster around the German fair circuit under the name Dreier Looping for twelve years, before selling it to Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia.

After two years at Sunway Lagoon, the ride was purchased by Flamingo Land where it reopened for the 2000 season as Magnum Force.

A ride on Magnum Force began with trains powered to the top of the curving 111 feet tall tyre-driven lift hill. From here, the tightly twisting first drop gave way to an equally tightly curved ascent back to nearly the same height as the top of the lift. Descending once more, trains entered the first two vertical loops back-to-back. After the mid-course brakes, the train took the final vertical loop then, with some speed still left, would enter some track which took it turning around through the ride's footprint before coming to a halt on the final brakes.

Almost inevitably, being a Schwarzkopf ride, Magnum Force was both perfectly paced and extremely smooth. It was of course intense and forceful, but also a lot of fun and easily allowed for much repeat riding.

Unfortunately Magnum Force's tenure at Flamingo Land was relatively short and the ride closed at the end of the 2005 season, and is now operating at La Feria Chapultepec Magico in Mexico.
