Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has been out for a little over a month now and has been an undisputed success. One of the key new features that was added in this latest entry to the series is the ability to mount monsters. A well timed leaping strike from above can knock the beast over and enable the hunter to climb atop its back, hanging on for dear life as it bucks and fights to loosen the hunter. Capcom evidently wanted to give fans a taste of what that feels like, as there’s soon to be a roller coaster themed after the flagship monster, the Gore Magala.

Located in California at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the popular Goliath ride will be reskinned to resemble the Gore Magala from 28th March to 10th August. Featuring a 255 foot drop and reaching speeds of up to 85 mph, this will indeed feel like riding upon the back of an enraged dragon. In addition to this, Capcom has also arranged for there to be demo units for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate at a nearby Cyber Cafe. Here’s a video of what the roller coaster is like:
