Six Flags Magic Mountain says it will introduce the world’s tallest pendulum ride — CraZanity — late next spring.

“At a record-breaking 17 stories in the air, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 75 miles-per-hour, as it whips back and forth higher and higher to give riders a staggering view of the world below them,” Six Flags said in a statement.  The pendulum swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise.

Six Flags also announced that, beginning Jan. 1, it will be operating 365 days a year, adding 100 days to its schedule.

“With Southern California welcoming more than 47 million visitors annually … Six Flags will now have an operating schedule on par with all other theme parks in Southern California,” it said.

Six Flags Entertainment Corp., which runs the theme parks, says it’s the world’s largest regional theme park company, with $1.3 billion in revenue and 20 parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada.
