Here is the train plunging down the second hill and toward the first tunnel. When Magnum XL-200 opened in 1989, this 157-foot-tall hill was the third tallest roller coaster hill in the world!
Magnum is considered to be an "Out and Back" coaster, but trains make a slight left turn when making this drop. On the way back to the station, trains make a right turn as they pass the section of track seen in the lower left corner of this picture.
