The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

I am suspect of these rumors. That's 2 different ones in less than 2 pages of discussion from the same poster, from the same "reliable" source. And I hate the name Twisted Colossus. I pray that is a cruel joke. I guess we'll just have to wait till Thursday.

But all this is still, after all, just a rumor.

 

There has been no concrete confirmation of anything, has there?

 

Yeah I'm with you Guy, Twisted Colossus is not a name I would have picked, I don't know, just something about it I don't care for, but whatever.

 

And it is funny how all of a sudden these rumors from a 'reliable source or sources' suddenly appeared.

I'm the poster of these rumors and I hate the name Twisted Colossus too. I'm afraid that's what it gonna be called though. I'm not 100% sure though.

 

As for the track, I'm hearing they are taking both out and are putting one track in the middle so that they have more structure to work with. We will see on Thursday!

Marketing it as the longest RMC? I guess that means it probably won't be the tallest or fastest, right? Guess we'll find out Thursday. But a nice long ride will be nice. The New Texas Giant was really long, so this gives me hope for this ride. Hopefully they'll go with a different track color. Though I doubt they will.

Just to throw this out there, not that is really means anything:

 

Twisted

adjective

 

1. forced out of its natural or proper shape; crumpled.

"the crash left a trail of twisted metal across the highway"

 

2. (of a personality or a way of thinking) unpleasantly or unhealthily abnormal; warped.

"suffering a twisted ankle, he was carried from the field"

 

I'm also suspect of the rumors, but I don't really have an issue with Twisted Colossus. It's kind of cool name, actually. It'll be a hell of a ride either way.

Personally I think a crimson red I-Box track against the white super structure would look really great, but then again at a place like SoCal where the sun is so strong, the red would fade to pink in a year or two like Xcelerator. *Blech*

 

Twisted Colossus is ok at best. I still hope it's Mega Colossus, and the potential "world's longest hybrid coaster" by RMC gives me some HIGH hopes. Come on, Schilke! Blow us away!

For exactly two weeks. Then the effects will begin to break and stay broken.

 

I just felt like quoting this because whatever the hell the ride ends up being...this will most definitely be true.

1) I don't like the name "Twisted Colossus". Iron Colossus would have been preferable.

 

2) There better be a crap-ton of airtime. I will rage and hate SFMM for all eternity if this thing is all inversions but no airtime. Texas Giant was awesome. Give me that airtime for this.

 

3) I don't like the one-track only rumor, but let's face it. SFMM would never have the other side running anyway.

 

I've heard from someone that this is supposed to be a "cross of Goliath and NTG". We'll see how the video turns out. For now, this better be good.

They better give us something dam good after losing colossus. Just call it Mega Colossus and I'll accept whatever it is.

 

Edit- in all honesty though my hopes are that ride is a gigantic bowl like structure with a mix of airtime hills and a variety of inversions. Like zero g rolls along the outside and maybe a vertical loop on the inside and have it all littered with hills twists and crazy elements. It would be an amazing spectacle from the parking lot.

Twisted Colossus isn't a great name, but it's not a bad name either. Honestly, if they can build a top tier coaster I don't care what they call it. If the one-track rumor proves to be true, that will be somewhat disappointing, but if the park isn't going to run the ride as a racing coaster I'd rather they put the money into a better ride than one they don't use. As for the statistics, Colossus was 4,325 ft long, 125 ft tall, and had a top speed of 62 mph, so the new ride should definitely be the longest RMC (and I somewhat hope they don't try for tallest or fastest).

 

My personal hope: Keep the out and back layout, keep the statistics relatively unchanged (slightly taller and/or faster is okay, but not 200+ ft or 80+ mph), and build a ride with as much airtime as possible. Inversions are okay as well, but don't go overboard (a barrel roll would be okay, and maybe a zero-G stall, but no more than that). If this is done right, SFMM could have one of the top 5 coasters in the world, so I hope that beginning summer 2015 they do.

Wow, a little harsh?

Here are my thoughts on these "rumors" -

 

1. Name - Does it matter? Honestly, DOES. IT. MATTER?!?!? If it still has the word "Colossus" in it, we will all still be calling it "Colossus." I don't think I ever once said "Let's go ride IRON Rattler", it was always just "Rattler." I'm never going to say "Let's go ride Medusa STEEL COASTER", it will just be "Medusa." So I ask you once again? Does it matter? They could call it "Vagina Colossus" and people would still just call it "Colossus."

 

2. Racing vs. Single Track - Again, does it matter? Let's be honest here, you're going to complain because the park wants to build a LONGER Rocky Mountain coaster that will probably have MORE airtime? Really??? This is what we are bitching about for the last few pages???

 

3. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME ANY OF US RODE COLOSSUS WHILE IT RACED!??!?! It's been YEARS, right? So why not make it one long ride? Play to the parks strengths of not being able to operate both sides anyway.

 

But seriously, are we really arguing over a name that none of us will ever use, and the idea of a LONGER ride???

 

Just put some thought into this, please, before you respond again.

 

Thank you.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I would definitely call it Vagina.

 

Edit - Ooooo, "Colossal Vagina" would work! I'd just have to clarify if I'm talking about the ride or my ex girlfriends.

Sounds good to me, as long as it isn't the same duration as Goliath

Again, I just don't understand the complaining. If Magic Mountain installed a version of Great America's Goliath that was 5 seconds SHORTER, it would still be, hands down, the best ride in the park.

 

So we are complaining about the name. Complaining about the potential for a longer RMC ride. Complaining about the potential for a shorter RMC ride. Is anyone actually HAPPY or looking forward to the ride at all!?!?

I'm loving some of the "I know stuff already" bragging I'm seeing coming from other sites, as though that makes someone think they are better than the next person, or will get them laid or whatever. The old saying of "Those than know, don't tell, and those that tell, don't know (or at least won't have industry friends for very long.)" most certainly applies here.

 

We'll all know for sure in a matter of days.
