Tatsu is a steel flying roller coaster designed by Bolliger & Mabillard at the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park located in Valencia, California.

Announced on November 17, 2005, the roller coaster opened to the public on May 13, 2006 as the park's seventeenth roller coaster.

Tatsu reaches a height of 170 feet (52 m) and speeds up to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h).

The ride's name comes from Japanese mythology and means Flying Beast in Japanese.

The roller coaster is also the world's tallest and fastest flying coaster; is the only flying roller coaster to feature a zero-gravity roll; and has the world's highest pretzel loop.

It was the world's longest flying coaster until The Flying Dinosaur surpassed it.

In the roller coaster's opening year, it was named the 40th best roller coaster in the world in Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards; in Mitch Hawker's Best Steel Roller Coaster Poll, the roller coaster placed at the 34 position.
