It's wierd editing pictures and seeing all these angles that just CAN'T be right, but then you check the horizon line and those crazy twists are really there! It was said that it runs so smooth that you can hardly hear it until it's right on top of you...awesome!

That twisting double down thing on the green track. Holy carp!

 

And I feel such a fool now, years ago I was thinking "Hm only Intamin does anything anymore and I hope coasters haven't hit their stale point" then came RMC, and B&M stepping outside their box.

Great photos! I think it's safe to assume this will be the best coaster in the park when it opens.

 

I never thought anything would top X2 for me (my #1 steel coaster), but TC or WC looks to be possible close contenders (for the first time ever)...!

Yeah, I still have MForce holding onto my #1 spot! I've been waiting for someone to dethrone it and despite some close calls, none have. I think one of these RMCs may be the one to do it.

Twisted Colossus looks great, and the rest of Screampunk District appears to be turning out good as well. More than anything, I think this shows that SFMM does care about their park and is doing what they feel is best for their target audience. I can't wait to ride Twisted Colossus and will be there opening day if possible (yes, I think this will be worth a 3-4 hour wait...once).

Has there been any announcement or discussion about whether they are actually going to have a show or something of that nature in the theater again?? How long has it been since it was actually utilized for anything other than group stuff like Q&A at WCB...?

I think they have a different act in their every summer. I remember a terrible magician and a Chinese acrobat troupe in the last few years?

there's gonna be a cirque-esque show in there when the district opens.

It's interesting to see how the trains in storage don't rest on the road wheels here.

 

When I was at RMC's shop while they were making the track for TC, they were currently working on "the most twisted piece of track [he'd] seen so far". Definitely looks like it!

Great pictures! This ride looks crazy!

When The Voyage was being designed, HW's maintenance team actually requested that they design the storage area to where the trains rest on the upstop wheels. This supposedly makes it easier to get up under the trains to work on stuff and inspect them.
