  1. I'm just upset because this was sfmm one real shot at a top 10 coaster, and there's not one top 10 coaster with a twisting drop. Just saying
  2. I'm just going on the fact that every twisted drop I've ever been on sucks (ie, Riddler, Batman, Viper) compared to a straight drop (Goliath, full throttle, even old Colossus). You don't get that good feeling at all.
  3. My nightmares have come true!!! Were getting a twisted drop ((( So disappointed!!!
  4. My guess they will market it as the longest hybrid and also with the most inversions. What's record right now, 3?
  5. Nice find on those links. I tried putting in "iron'' instead of "twisted" and nothing came up. This 100% confirms to me it's Twisted Colossus
  6. I agree, I don't like the sound of Twisted colossus. Don't want to speculate too much, but that sounds like a bunch of inversions. Twisted first drop will be so disappointing!!
  7. Has anyone been to the park in the last couple days?? Is there any progress to report in taking the ride apart?
  8. I can't exactly remember where I heard/ read that, but I do remember it. They've followed on that path so far the last two years, so we'll see.
  9. Didn't RMC state a year or so ago that going forward they would be doing one redo of an existing coaster and one custom design. With cyclone at SFNE confirmed as a refurb doesn't this leave the custom one for SFMM.... Just saying
  10. Robb, how confident are you, that this will be some sort of project from RMC??
  11. First person to spot a RMC truck at the Colossus wins a huge prize!!!! Haha jk!!
  12. If I had to make a guess Id say this is going to be them tearing down most of the ride and incorporating just some of the old structure. I think this will be the biggest RMC project to date, I expect to see construction begin tomorrow. As for what's to come, I will seriously be so pissed if they do a 90 degree inversion spiraling first drop that I have a bad feeling is coming. Here's begging for a 200 ft plus standard 85 degree straight drop!!!
  13. Three years to construct?? Does this mean no rides or other attractions for the next 5 years? Also, doesn't this mean the killer whales are going to have an even smaller tank while construction is going on?
  14. Screamscape is reporting that the budget for the 2015 attraction has been cut and nothing new will be coming! If this is true, it is extremely disappointing not only for this park but the entire Seaworld brand!
  15. Although it's only 54 feet, Manta at SWSD first drop has amazing airtime and gives that great feeling that larger drops produce. Never gets old!

  17. What I don't get is how smaller parks like Holiday World, Carowinds, Canada's Wonderland, and Dollywood are consistenly adding $20 million + coasters every couple of years, and knotts hasn't added one in 10 years. None of those parks rank in top attendance ever, but knotts does every year. Someone enlighten me please!!!
  18. I just watched the night vision video, and to try compare it to Indiana Jones at DL is just shameful.
  19. "Colossus, the king of WOODED coasters" I'd say that confirms they're giving it the RMC treatment.
  20. It looks like Timberline Twister reopened on Friday, Knotts posted a picture of the updated trains on their site!
  21. Rode full throttle for the first time this past weekend and thought it was great, but honestly thought that the restraints around the knees were the worst I've ever experienced. Freaking painful. Also, does anyone else think apocalypse is a top 5 ride at the park?
  22. Hey I'm going to the park tomorrow and the weather forecast is saying high winds up to 40 mph. Do you guys think this will affect any rides from being open?
  23. An over themed aquatrax would be epic no doubt, but in all honesty probably won't happen... But with the addition of Manta it proves the park isn't afraid to add cutting edge rides to their repitoir. Manta is great but I feel the park needs a real signature ride/attraction to keep the over abundance of crowds coming year after year!!!
