TPR was invited to check out the progress on Twisted Colossus today. It's looking great so far, it looks like it's a little more than halfway done. Lots of work was being to done today on the "Top Gun" inversion, we were told that should be completed very soon!

 

Check out the photos:

I think the californians' prayers for airtime are being answered.

 

This thing is somehow looking a lot better than the concept media. This one should be killer.

 

I thought that was illegal in CA?

Is California going to have a new best coaster? It certainly looks like it! If I only get to one new for 2015 coaster this year, I'm glad it's Twisted Colossus. Hopefully there's just two more months to go before we can ride this thing.

This is looking a little ahead into the future, but knowing the next new coaster will be the park's 20th, they'll have to go with something really really spectacular. I'm actually starting to think a new B&M giga like Leviathan and Fury would make a great addition to the park.

i'd love a giga, but has six flags spent anywhere near the amount on one coaster anytime recently?

Great view from behind the scenes! So are they using new wood for the entire ride or recycling?

 

Oh, the humanity

 

It's a mix of old and new, which is best showcased here. The airtime hill is the original structure being re-used, while the top gun stall is a completely new structure built on top of the old one.

 

 

Now if you're still not sure if it's all old or new, let me just point out this picture in the report showcasing the old Colossus track left in place under the lift hill:

It might be only a very close 2nd to WC, but the pacing on that ride looks like it will be ridiculous. Its safe to say, though, when you get an RMC, you get a world class airtime machine! Will be very happy to ride this guy later in the fall

My best guess would be Kingda Ka which opened 10 years ago. They spent I believe, $25 million on it.

Head choppers galore!

I can't wait to hear the SoCal GP's reaction to this ride. I have a feeling some reactions are going to be hilarious.

 

I'm pretty sure many are going to think its dangerous. I don't know if its a So Cal thing, but many many people I talk to don't like the feeling of airtime. Maybe it's why SFMM has more inversions than any other park in the world? If anything it will keep lines shorter for the ride! (dreaming, I know).
