^ I don't think what Ninja is undergoing can be considered "routine" or "annual"

 

 

To be honest Im fine with that sign... I do not think any park would have an "our train got destroyed so we only are running one train for now" sign

 

still funny though

I would so stop and take a photo in front of that sign! Even better it should say "One of our trains ran over a tree so we're only running one while we rebuild another second one from parts that have been sitting around for years"

Six Flags Magic Mountain, the “Thrill Capital of the World,” and voted by USA TODAY readers as America’s Best Theme Park, today unveiled plans for the highly anticipated, world-record-breaking hybrid coaster, Twisted Colossus, an unprecedented, awe-inspiring four-minute journey through nearly 5,000 feet of track and two lift hills.

 

Twisted Colossus, the next generation of the beloved wooden roller coaster that thrilled millions of guests in its 36-year reign at the park, will be a unique technological marvel combining an iconic wooden structure with state-of-the-art Iron Horse Track. The advanced technology, available exclusively at Six Flags, provides ride experiences never before possible on wooden coasters, such as over-banked turns and inversions. Twisted Colossus will feature numerous exciting components including a “Top Gun” element, the western hemisphere’s first “High Five” element, and a Zero G Roll.

 

“At Six Flags, innovation is in our DNA and with Twisted Colossus, innovation will go to an extreme level with record-breaking elements, faster speeds and steeper banks. This cutting-edge technology marries the best of both classic and modern coaster designs. It is definitely a twist on a traditional wooden coaster experience,” said park president Bonnie Rabjohn.

Twisted Colossus will feature numerous exciting components including a “Top Gun” element, the western hemisphere’s first “High Five” element, and a Zero G Roll.

 

With its unique construction, Twisted Colossus will feature:

 

- “Top Gun Stall” – an inversion where the train slows down upside down

- Western Hemisphere’s first “High Five” – where two trains pass through an overbanked turn facing each other with the illusion that you can reach out and “high five” other riders

- Zero G Roll where track twists 360 degrees

- A staggering 128-foot drop at an amazing 80-degrees

- 18 airtime hills

- Two lift hills on one continuous track

- Four minutes of thrills on nearly 5,000 feet of track – longest hybrid coaster in the world

 

Twisted Colossus will be the focal point of the newly themed area, Back Alley, where you can expect the unexpected through whimsical experiences in entertainment, food and retail. The original Colossus wooden coaster opened on June 29, 1978 and offered its farewell run on August 17, 2014.
