Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Watching that vid not only has me excited, but heartbroken because we're NEVER gonna see two trains side-by-side ever again after the first few weeks of operation.

 

it's not a racer...it's one track with 2 lift hills. so, i hope there is something that can sync the trains on the lift.

Looks like we are finally getting a RMC creation, sweet! I like how they made it so it'll still race and the focus doesn't seem to be on the inversions, although I think its awesome we got a high five element and zero-g stall, plus it seems like there will actually be some good airtime moments in there as well. I'm really looking forward to riding this thing. They kept it simple; almost like a nod to the old colossus. I'm not dissapointed

The press release says

 

Four minutes of thrills on nearly 5,000 feet of track

 

That length doesn't match up at all with it being one long ride, wouldn't that mean it's staying the same as a racer with two sides?

I'm impressed! Looks like they paid homage to the original version of Colossus while really giving it a good update! The first drop looks amazing, and I like how the inversions sort of "interact" with the other side of the track. I'm genuinely excited for it. Can't wait!

The original length was only 4235'.

 

In the video, one of the track sections changes from blue to green. Look at the finish.

 

Looks like Colossus will now be a mobius coaster.

That's what I mean. The vid shows two trains at least near each other when on the lift hills, and the likelihood we'll see that occurring ever again is once in a blue moon (if the things I've heard about operations is true).

 

Granted, I'm still excited to see the West Coast finally getting an RMC!

I do very much like this. This has so much of the iconic look and feel of Colossus, vastly updated to provide a fun, updated, exciting ride. So many coasters have track that crisscross in structure, and images and ads emphasize it, but the reality is that two trains never cross in that way. Keeping the tracks separate and having long form inversions right over the other track is such a cool effect. Hopefully, they can maintain that kind of operation. Well done.

Pay very careful attention to the video at 1:21 this is where the blue track turns green and then goes up the lift hill. It is ONE track that races. Each track goes around the old footprint once instead of twice when it was a wooden racer. Hence 5,000 feet of track. The layout has been shortened.

I agree, "racing" for the first year. I'm impressed that they are actually going to keep the "Original Colossus" aesthetic. 2 lifts though, damn. That NoLimits YouTube video from earlier this year was dead on. Should be an impressive ride nonetheless. Admittedly, I do have severe Wicked Cyclone envy after watching that video...

 

I like that Jim cut his monologue short this year. The Chicago Bulls intro was a nice touch too.

that's why i'm hoping there is some sensor that at least if they get close on the lift, they can speed one up or slow one down so they get close. seems kind of silly to advertise the high 5 without something in place. but who knows. i'm just ecstatic about this new ride!

The new area will be themed to "Back Alley", should be interesting to see how they work that into the surroundings....Back Alley, huh!

 

Agreed. They had the "Back Street" from 1987-1993 under Joe Schillaci's management only to swap it out for Gotham. Funny that they're sort of returning to that rather than expanding on the psuedo-mythological theme of Goliath.
