Swung by the park for a few hours to see how things would be in the covid world, and I have to say that magic mountain did a pretty good job. For those wondering, it appears the only checks for r

SFMM Trip Report. Opening Day, April 1st, 2021.    TLDR: I had a very six flags day (but it was awesome)   After over four years, I finally returned to my home park and self-procla

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

The fact that there is now a LOST reference in the thread about Twisted Colossus automatically makes it the most amazing thread in the history of internet message boards.

They should put in a Countdown timer in the station for the ride ops and tell them if a train fails to dispatch in 110 seconds, Sixflags will combust - like in Lost.

 

In lost it just created a rather strong magnetic pull. So, maybe pull Goliath down onto the station crushing/killing everyone?

I just thought of this what if they only have one station and when you start the ride you go on the right lift hill and then after going through the course you go on the left lift hill that way every body gets the same ride.

 

I wish they would do this. I'm going to hate having to wait for both sides.

But hey, at least you would get two credits! I mean, it is two different coasters, right?

they have a clock in Goliath's station, or at least did. get's to 60 and flashes for 2 minutes or more. LOL

 

I loved Kings Island with Banshee and Diamondback, they give themselves 40 seconds, and countdown, 30-20-10. so fast, then you come home to Magic Mountain.

Duel loading, duel lift-hills, duel tracks, BUT only one coaster.

 

And yes, that does seem quite odd when you think about it.

You do know I was being sarcastic, right?

At this point, it's hard to tell.

 

Not saying you aren't, but... yeah, just ignore me. #TwistedColossus#SFMM2015#swag#whatever

I believe they are doing this. It only loads one train at a time, but once blue is done with the course, it goes up on the green and does the green side. Set up like the Smiler (like I said a few pages back).

Wes,

I didn't think we would be starting what appears as though we started....or at least continued......*sigh*

Maybe all the misinformation would stop going around if we'd all be a little less facetious in our replies.

I agree. Peoole who overuse sarcasm think they're coming off witty and intelligent but it always screams socially inept IMO.

People no dual loading stations, pay attention to the video. One track painted 2 colors for the different experiences.
I thought some people were talking about a dual loading station like Kingda Ka or Manta?

So four stations? Two for each side?

No, dual stations, two for each train. Four trains, so that's eight stations.

 

You have to wait in two stations to get on the ride.

That is what I was talking about many pages back. I've ridden Outlaw Run and Goliath at SFGAm, and 110 second dispatches are hard for both of those rides to hit...ever. Outlaw Run at the beginning of this season had dispatches around 200 seconds and that's at Silver Dollar City where they take their dispatches seriously. If Twisted Colossus wants 110 second dispatches, the only way to do that is run 4 trains with dual loading stations similar to Kingda Ka and Manta.

still can't get over the fact we get to experience that first drop not once, but twice! So stoked. I may be able to forgive SFMM for the wasted potential on Yolo

And that could be the trick question. Yes it might have a station like Tatsu or KK! It would make loading and dispatching for this beast better. Most people here are talking about waiting in line for 2 different rides like the old Colossus. For now the speculation will continue, till we see the station and track work.

I am excited for this! As if the sky line doesn't already look amazing, it's now going to look even better! Don't care for the name though.
I actually believe the skyline won't be better with this ride, but that doesn't matter since it will be a great ride.
