@rollercoasteroftheday 9.5.19 This is TWISTED COLOSSUS at SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN in Valencia, CA, an RMC iBox hybrid coaster. 121 ft. tall 128 ft. drop 57 mph 2 inversions (zero-g-roll, top gun stall) 4990 ft. long 80° drop(s) Designed by Alan Schilke Opened May 23, 2015 Twisted Colossus is a conversion of Colossus, a massive wooden coaster that opened in 1978. Built by International Amusement Devices, it was the tallest and fastest wooden coaster in the world. Colossus quickly became a Hollywood icon due to the park’s LA-based location. The coaster was featured in iconic movies and shows such as National Lampoon’s Vacation, Wonder Woman, The A-Team, Step by Step, and Castle to name a few. It is also the namesake to a song by Tyler, the Creator. Colossus would go through many modifications, but in 2014, it was announced to close forever. To celebrate the iconic ride, there was a 36-hour riding marathon. It was shortly announced after that it would become Twisted Colossus, one of RMC’s conversions. Unlike its predecessor, Twisted Colossus is a Möbius coaster, meaning there is one continuous track, so therefore it is one credit. It was also the first coaster to feature a high five, a banking element towards the other train, and a top gun stall, an inverting element similar to a moment in the movie Top Gun. During conversion, the top of the structure caught on fire, spawning different memes. No one was injured since the park was closed. Twisted Colossus opened in 2015 to rave reviews. Many thought it was a worthy successor to Colossus and live the dueling aspect of it. The coaster hasn’t been around long enough to be in Hollywood classics, but it was featured in Katy Perry’s Chained to the Rhythm music video. What do you think of Twisted Colossus?
