^&^^ Thanks for the info. Not sure if I'm gonna like it in grey. Will wait to see what it looks like when it's finished before I make judgement. I'm sure it will have no effect on the ride at all.

 

But in hindsight, grey does depress me. So my elitist, coaster semi-enthusiest, arrogant, snap prejudgement would allow me to make the prediction that the ride will do the same. So sad. I had such high hopes for this redo. Too bad it sucks. Don't even need to ride it. It sucks.

Not that it matters but are you talking about WC or TC?

Well it kinda matters since there's separate threads for separate parks.

I love how Twisted Colossus is totally dwarfed by Goliath, yet it will easily become the best ride in the park.

 

With the pace they're moving at, it looks SFMM might actually open this in Spring like they promised for the majority of their previous attractions that turned out not opening until June/July.

If TC is as good as I am expecting it to be, then I would easily trade half the other coasters in the park for it.

 

If they opened TC while also closing X2, Tatsu, Goliath, and YOLO, I would still call it an oler all improvement on the park's lineup.

I believe they changed the target opening to Summer around the time IAAPA rolled around. They could be fine though and have TC up and running by Spring. After all, both the on-site RMC construction workers and Alan Schilke (albeit semi-sarcastically) stated that the fire actually helped speed up the construction process rather than slow it down.

^I really think SFMM is using the term summer to simply mean around Memorial Day and not specifically the summer season. Knowing the general public I'm guessing they'd get quite a few complaints if they advertised a spring opening and the ride wasn't ready for spring break. Based on the current state of construction, I'm guessing the ride will be complete by early April and will open Memorial Day weekend. I really doubt we'll see another mid-June opening.

 

Every time I see photos of Twisted Colossus I get more excited for the ride. While not the most intense ride ever, it just looks like it will be a ton of fun. I'm guessing a lot of the general public will still prefer X2, but I'd be surprised if Twisted Colossus doesn't become the enthusiast favorite at SFMM.

When has that ever mattered before

 

i haven't really paid close attention but i remember when they used to make it a perk to ride a new ride and at a certain time. with superman, that was pretty bad. at least we got to ride one night. or maybe pass holders were spread out a number of days. car went up about 2/3 of the tower, if that. i don't really remember.

 

so i'd guess those promises, at least as a perk to buy a pass, really aren't stressed anymore.

 

that dual RMC colored drop is looking pretty wicked. lol

Well, pass-holders got to ride Batman backwards for a little while before it opened up to everyone.

I meant they promoted the season pass as a big deal to ride Superman. something like, buy a pass to ride superman in 1996, or whenever it opened. then it kept getting delayed but they had those special days later in the year when it worked enough so pass holders could ride. so, they still kept their promise to pass holders.

 

i do think six flags does a lot for pass holders.

TCol's drop looks so beautiful.......

I think the best RMC in the world (until 2016) will be a toss-up between Twisted Colossus and Wicked Cyclone. I know lots of people would say Wicked Cyclone, but TC looks like it has non-stop airtime.

 

Are you referencing Wildfire about 2016? #curious Indeed, Wicked Cyclone does look pretty good as well! I wish either had a dive loop though like Goliath (SFGA), but we can't have everything
