The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

but colossus IS being saved tho, not in the way many have hoped, but he deserved better than to rot the way he is before the transformation! its just something that has to be accepted. i LOVE colossus with every fiber of my being and spirit, and just because the connection I have with colossus is so deep, no rmc worker or sfmm park management can change the spirit of colossus! twisted tracks or not!

^^^True. Normally, I would have said the same about a modern GCI. But, I actually think that, when compared to other GCI's of the late 2000's, Apoc is actually one of their weaker designs. It is still 1000x better than what was there before, though.

 

I understood the complaints about Full Throttle, Green Lantern, Apoc. In all three of these announcements, I agree that I was expecting a bit more for a park this size. But TC? Seriously? This is their biggest project since Tatsu (which is 8 years old).

 

Why are there complaints about the length of this thing? Correct me if I am wrong, but won't this be the third longest steel coaster in the US? Also, I would understand the complaints about capacity if this were built at a park with descent operations like Cedar Point. But, this is SFMM. 700 pph is rocking it by SFMM standards.

 

Edit: okay, not the third longest steel in the US, but still probably in the top ten.

The people around the net complaining about TC's length compared to the original's 8,000ft of suckage should be forced to marathon on that old ride Mantis Man style. I'm so sick of that embarrassing argument against this new ride.

 

I agree. It's actually ridiculous.

 

They are building a ride that is AT LEAST going to be 100 times better than the original, that should be enough right there but apparently not.

 

I haven't been this excited for a new ride in a long time. The layout, the track colors, the trains, it's just gonna be awesome!

^I agree too, the part that I really I like of Twisted Colossus is the bit of fun before the chain lift which is also unique because on most coasters, they just go right to the lift with one or two turns, but on Twisted Colossus:

I have to admit I am positive TC will be a hit. I think it has some fantastic elements that the general public, as well as enthusiasts will love. If I was a betting man Id say SFMM has winner.

I mean just look at that pre-lift. Its non-stop action no matter what the track length is. And I love love love the colors!

I was at the Mountain today, leaving now. I was foolish enough to not take pictures of Colossus on the way in. Basically all of the 1st turnaround has been chopped off 20-30 feet lower than the original turn. There is a small part still sticking up that I wound assume is for the high five. Unrelated, but they were using both sides of Tatsu's station, which I've never seen before in my life, and I had the best rides I've had on Apocalypse in a long time. Train 1, row 10.

 

Edit - Crappy phone night pictures are crappy:

The most dramatic changes were to this turn.

There is a crane near the brake run/former double down. Don't know how new that is.

I can't wait to see how this turns out. It looks like it could be the best ride at SFMM hands down. And this wasn't in the concept art but does anyone know if the old track from the portions of the ride that aren't being redone are staying? Like the lower portion of track in the structure of the first turnaround.
