On Saturday 11/21, Theme Park Review was invited to see the Six Flags Magic Mountain Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience. It’s rare for park patrons to get to drive through a theme park, so this

Looks like the 2021ish coaster for SFMM was conditionally approved by the city https://epicla.lacounty.gov/SelfService/#/permit/3f44c971-a566-49fc-95c9-7ae34f7382fd Here is the second request th

It'd be amazing if Colossus got the RMC treatment, but one thing that concerns me are the large, slow turns after the 1st, 3rd(ish) and 5th drops. Other conversions like Texas Giant, Medusa and Rattler all had a decent amount of speed going through most of their elements before the conversion, and though they did have their slow parts, they weren't nearly as large as the ones present on Colossus. RMC might have to completely change the layout of Colossus and, given the coaster's age (it predates the oldest coaster RMC converted by 12 years) and girth, that may be a challenge.

 

Not saying that is isn't possible, but it's something to think about.

^Not something to worry about though.

 

And it should not really be a challenge to them as they know what they would be doing and if they felt the design called for changes like that to improve the ride you can be sure they will have it handled no problem. It may be a challenge in the sense of it's size and the dual tracks, but should not be an issue.

I heard MM is adding three new kiddie coasters in order to hang on to their coaster title for a while, as well as having the record for the most kiddie coasters.

 

1) YOLO Jr. 2) Superman Jr. 3) Batman Jr.

 

The 3 coasters will have a total combined track length of 2,500 ft.

I'm hearing from inside sources that the name of the RMC Colossus will be TWISTED COLOSSUS! This is from a trusted source that has been right about all additions so far... So I'm excited to see if this will indeed be the name of the coaster.

 

This thread has been dead lately! And we are 4 days from the announcement! Last minute predictions/opinions anyone?

Twisted Colossus? Don't like the name at all.

I finally got a chance to experience Magic Mountain and I have to admit that I'm very disappointed. Alot of the coasters are rough! Scream was the worst! I walked away from that ride with a pounding headache. Revolution didn't make it any better. The layout is awesome, but the restraints completely ruin the ride. There's absolutely no padding on the restraint and your head is constantly banged against it throughout the entire ride. Not to mention a few others. I was really looking forward to visiting this park because they have an amazing line up. What's the problem? Are they not keeping up with proper maintenance, etc? Or maybe the coasters experience more wear and tear because the park is year round?

Twisted colossus sounds like what we should be getting. A wooden coaster with a heavy focus on inversions rather than airtime. Although it's RMC! Maybe they'll sneak in some airtime for us.

 

Also, twisted colossus doesn't have the same ring to it as Iron Colossus. It almost sounds insulting to the ride and people who loved it. It's "twisted" now

-_-

Who knows how much validity there is to the Twisted Colossus thing, but holy smokes does that sound like a spur of the moment name that the kid from those in-park gel ads might have come up with!

 

Woah, dude, gnarly! So twisted. That's it, Twisted Colossus!

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!!

 

oh i so hope they don't twist the first drop. i thought SFGAM Goliath's drop was awesome, and would love one like that. or outlaw run with momentum. they can do whatever they want with the rest. oh, a zero g stall, or something like that please.

Twisted colossus? Not a huge fan. But this name makes it sound like it will be dueling and not be just one track. And if it is dueling, I'm sure there will be a cool element or two where it interacts with the other side.

It won't, trust me -.-

New rumor from same source: World's Longest Hybrid Coaster! Longest RMC ever built.

 

Supposedly they are completely getting rid of the dueling aspect and putting one single track in the middle of where the two were before. Other sources have also said that it will be called Twistesd Colossus.

I'm probably going to be in the minority, but I really like the name Twisted Colossus. And thank the Lord if they are ditching the racing/dueling gimmick. Give me a kick ass RMC Twister, and I'm a happy man.

Honestly, that sounds like a really ugly-looking concept. I mean, the ride experience will be great no matter what. It's an RMC. I just think this is a way for the park to have an excuse for not spending the money to demolish one side.

 

Hopefully this isn't really what they're doing.

 

^I agree. I like the name "Twisted Colossus".
