  1. RMC has truly done an outstanding job on the reinvention of Colossus and Wicked Cyclone I mean I am a true Intamin fanboy but I haven't even see one of their coasters where every inch of track just looks like WOW!!! imo. After the neutering of Rev and Colossus us SFMM fans have been crying for years that this park needs something with some airtime. We got Goliath but only came with one airhill some appreciate it others like me are like meh . RMC comes in and finally gives us Mountain dwellers something that looks like it will be airtime galore from the run to the lift hill to the pop up into the final break run looks like there will be airtime with twisty goodness added into the mix. Yes we can pick TC apart and say it could be taller, longer, this or that but what we actually have is looking great to me. I highly appreciate what RMC has done with TC and I truly can not wait to experience Twisted Colossus!!!

  2. My nightmares have come true!!! Were getting a twisted drop ((( So disappointed!!!


    I also agree with this!!!


    I was hoping for a steep straight drop like Goliath(SFGAm). SFMM has/had a chance to turn Colossus back into a major airtime machine, yet the more I hear the more it sounds like another inversion fest. Yeah there still maybe some airtime this is RMC, Im just sick of SFMM and inversions. The most I was hoping for inversion wise was maybe a Zero g stall not a twisted mass of loops and barrel rolls.

  3. You guys seem to be forgetting that while Intamin rides are fun, they are a maintenance nightmare.


    Intamin is a maintenance nightmare well if you think you can make a 10/12,000 horsepower hydraulic motor launch a multi-ton train perfectly every time or have a single cable tow a multi-ton train up a 300+ foot hill perfectly every time I'm sure Intamin would love to have your expertise in their company. I love how enthusiast love to rag on Intamin yet they are always at the top of the coaster rankings for them to be such are horrible company it sure hasn't stopped amusement parks all over the world from buying them just look at 2013 there are 8 Intamins to 2 B&M and with that said...


    I am hoping KI get's an Intamin Giga or a longer more bad a$$ version of Maverick!!!

  4. As this is a prototype I expect some delays before opening.


    How is this a prototype this is a Lifthill based coaster with 14 inversions manufacturers have been using chain lifts and making inversions for decades, their is nothing new about the Smiler beside it having 14 inversions which all of them have been done before. Yet Intamin get's creamed for creating 400+ foot coasters with never done before on a coaster hydraulic launches, 300+ foot lift hills with cable lifts if they don't work perfect every time, yet Gerstlauer has failed to get a coaster open using tried and proven tech and the excuse is it's a prototype

  5. Oh yawn the record playing of SFMM is a ghetto dump warzone is played out, I've been going to this park for over 20+ years and it is not near bout as bad as you guys make it out to be. Anyways I'm not trying to argue I just think the buses will work out much better then you guys think they will and will be much better then those old smelly slow bumpy trams that they've been using. I guess we all will see how they work out this summer whether it's good or bad

  6. Rumors are running rampant with the removal of Perilous Plunge everything has been rumored to be going into that spot. So here's my take on the Dive Machine idea/rumor/speculation :O)


    Stats: 215 feet tall, with a 200 foot 90* vertical drop, 2808 feet in length, 73 mph max speed.


    Elements: 128 foot tall Immelman Loop , 110 foot tall high speed Overbanked Turn, DOUBLE CORKSCREW!!! at 77 and 65 feet tall , 40 foot negative G speed hill.





  7. Screamscape


    While we eagerly await the final announcement about Full Throttle in a few hours, today’s rumor has more to do with how the ride will reuse the old monorail tunnel through the mountain itself. The tunnel will not be a station as some have suspected, as the real station will go up near where the Log Jammer station was. Once the train launches through the huge vertical loop, I’m told it will actually rise up the mountain, climbing over the Superman plaza area, before it turns and dives back down and right into the old Metro tunnel on the far side of the park.

    What exactly will happen inside the tunnel is a bit of a mystery, as they are hoping to add some kind of special effects in here. The mystery part isn’t that no one knows… it has more to do with the fact that the final budget for the ride is not entirely set, and things like this have a tendency to get cut from the budget once construction starts. (Anyone else remember those fog filled “tunnels” that were supposed to be added to X2?)

    What I do know is that your train will apparently come to a stop in the tunnel, and much like Superman: Ultimate Flight from SFDK, your launch out of the tunnel will actually begin with a reverse launch back up the hill to gain a little extra momentum before you fall forward back into the tunnel and launch out at “Full Throttle” into that giant top hat.





    Sounds like to me a giant shuttle coaster or maybe I reading and picturing it wrong!!! How will you launch into a giant loop, go over the mountain, dive down into the tunnel and then stop, then launch out of tunnel backwards, only to fall back into the tunnel , then over a top hat without it being a shuttle coaster?

  8. SFGADv just posted this to their Facebook page


    Go Big? In 2013 we’re going big, bigger, biggest! Stay tuned for our three BIG pieces of news to be announced on Thursday!


    3 big pieces of NEWS!!! BIG, BIGGER, BIGGEST hmmm what are you guys thoughts on this? Maybe that rumored Lex Luther beating drop ride?, gasp what about SF first Giga coaster? maybe something for the Safari, HH, and a ride/coaster for the park?


    Hurry up Aug. 30th!!!

  9. Sorry I'll start my complaining now lol I see nor hear nothing appealing about that Screamscrape rumor, so we went from wishing for a giga, to something like an airtime terrain maverick-ish coaster to being ok with a gimmick giant loop top hat thingie that uses the same structure ummm ok


    That sketch that SoCalCoasters drew up is nice but come on if that was really all to this ride talk about a over hyped let down I'm sorry and I'm still trying to stay open minded until the announcment on the 30th but man it's hard to stay positive with these types of rumors coming out.

    I'm going to come right out and say it ... if this new ride is just the gimmick of the full loop and the top-hate element using the same loop structure I'm going to be pretty pissed they removed Log Jammer for that.


    Now if it's that gimmick along with a nice long ride then I may be ok with it. Enough with the Gimmicks, just give us a good coaster for a change.


    I 110% agree with this!!!
