Yolo viewpoint sure sounds a lot more fun to be around.

 

I understand the point you are trying to make with that statement, and I honestly agree to an extent.....

 

But I'm gonna have to ask you to re-evaluate what you just said and think about your life decisions.

 

 

Seriously if I were you I'd be having an existential mental breakdown after saying that.

I can see how some people can think that criticism is overdone. But to say that you would rather hang out with early teens who think their cool because of their baggy clothes and improperly placed hats whose dreams are drinking and having hookups is just too extreme.

 

I really hope that post was sarcastic.

 

Coaster enthusiasts are not a high group of social standing, but at least we are not YOLO people.

I think the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" really applies here. The day is what you chose to make of it. Some people (like myself) go in with a critical/analytical point of view while others go in with a YOLO mentality.

 

Exactly.

Depends on the teens. I certainly don't judge books by their covers. One of the most fun times I've ever had at a park was with a group of young people. Older folks can sometimes be a little jaded and nitpicky. That's not always fun to be around.

WHY!?

 

Is Six Flags on a mission to sweep the grass, or even mow the water?

 

So water isn't sitting on the midway for some stupid guest to walk through, slip and sue the park. They sweep it to thr nearest drain.

 

Can we please find something worth bitching about?

 

 

You must be new here.

 

Seriously though, the moderators do a great job usually but the comments/complaints have gotten really..whats the word... stupid lately and we all know how much Rob hates stupid comments so can we please start to delete some of the more absurd and asinine replies please? Sometimes I feel like I'm reading the CNN comments section.

A video linked on Screamscape documenting construction from a few days ago states clearly that a few sections of original Colossus track, notably the brake run, will not be removed for the purposes of structural support.

They also mentioned parts of the lift structure were dangerously close to the end of their lifespan, and would need to be replaced whether or not the I-box refurb was happening or not. Obviously the ride is/was safe, but it wasn't very reassuring. Check it out.

Sections had been getting replaced little by little throughout the years. I'm guessing had Twisted Colossus not came to be, those boards would have been replaced as well.

this was talked about when it came out some pages back. there are supports that run through some of the old track. the brake run is in the middle, and will all be gone. the part that is bracing the lift hill is the run up to the double up.

 

a lot of the wood at least looks pretty worn. can't wait for them to freshen it all up with new paint.

Can't wait for this coaster to open, it looks fantastic! Also, it seems as if Twisted Colossus will have a maintenance platform on the top of the lift similar to Wicked Cyclone's.

Notice the bottom platform
