SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN
& Six Flags Hurricane Harbor
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (5/30/13) The hot dry season is upon Southern California and a few brush fires have started in the region. One in particular is said to be burning close to Six Flags Magic Mountain, though the park has not been evacuated as of Wednesday morning and currently is not in any danger a firefighters battle the blaze.
(4/12/13) May 8th, 2016 will be the 40th Anniversary of Revolution, the first modern steel coaster with a vertical loop in the world. A nice video has been posted to YouTube urging Six Flags to please celebrate this important anniversary by Restoring Revolution back to the awesome condition it was in when it first opened, including the purchase of all new modern trains for it that would restore the rider experience to one offering just a simple lap-bar only restraint system, increase of the painful over-the-shoulder restraints added to the ride years later. (Watch the video below!)
Now a little bad news from Six Flags Magic Mountain this week as a group of four former employees has filed a putative class action lawsuit against the park with claims of underpaying the park’s employees, failure to pay overtime or provide mandatory meal and rest breaks throughout the work day, or provide proper seating. Unless things have changed since I moved away from California, I do recall that while much of California is exempt from Overtime, employees in the Hospitality/Tourism industry are still required by the state to be paid overtime for any hours worked over 8 in a given day, or over 40 within a work week. We don’t know the exact details that the plaintiffs claim that the park violated.
(1/23/13) The good news… Six Flags Magic Mountain will add the new Dining Pass option to the park this year. The bad news… the dining pass at Magic Mountain will cost you $99, $30 more than what they are charging for it at Six Flags St. Louis. That said… do remember that SFMM is open year-round, so the increase in cost apparently reflects the increase in number of days that you could use the Dining Pass. Unlike St. Louis, the pass is also good for Fright Fest, though I do have to wonder if they might lower the cost to buy the Dining Pass as the season goes on.
(1/18/13) Theme Park Review has announced the details of the 2013 West Coast Bash event, which will take place at Six Flags Magic Mountain on Saturday, Sept. 7th and Knott’s Berry Farm on Sunday, Sept. 8th. Click here to see the official details.
(12/20/12) Interesting news from Six Flags Magic Mountain this week from TheCoasterGuy. According to their latest report, two new parking lot trams have arrived at the park, but these aren’t your typical parking lot trams. These are full scale, two-car long enclosed articulated buses. They are plain white for the moment, but I bet we’ll see them get wrapped in some brightly colored advert just before being put into service.
(11/1/12) I’m hearing an odd rumor that Six Flags Magic Mountian may try their hand at hosting an ElecTRONica style night party atmosphere event at the park in 2013, centered around entrance area of the new Full Throttle coaster. Anyone else heard a peep about this?
(4/25/12) A great new Facebook page has been created with a mission close to my own heart. Take a peek at the Restore Revolution page… who’s goal is to have Six Flags Magic Mountain restore the once awesome Revolution coaster back to it’s former glory. The effort goes beyond just some TLC… they park needs to remove the unnecessary shoulder restraints that were bolted onto the trains in the 90s and make the ride run as Anton Schwarzkopf intended. In it’s current form, it’s just far too painful to be enjoyable due to the poorly designed addition of shoulder restraints onto the cars and layout that were never intended to have them. Take a look and join the revolution.
2013 - Sling Shot - Confirmed - (12/18/12) Good news from Six Flags Magic Mountain this week. TheCoasterGuy reports that the new Slingshot ride is now open but unfortunately it’s a bit pricy. The cost on opening day was set at $30 for a single rider or $40 for two riders. Season Pass holders do get a discount however and can get two riders for price of a single rider ticket.
(12/4/12) Local sources tell Screamscape that the new Spring Shot upcharge ride towers have been set up at the park this past week. The intention is to have the new extra-fee ride open before the end of the year, likely in time for the park’s winter holiday operations schedule.
You can see pictures of the new Sling Shot towers over at TheCoasterGuy, though to me this version looks a bit more like the portable version of the FunTime ride system and not the more beefy style park framework towers that offer an impressive lighting package.
(10/15/12) The Coaster Guy reports in from Magic Mountain this weekend with pictures of new construction taking place in the park. Not on the new Full Throttle coaster this time, but over in Cyclone Bay where it seems they may be preparing to install the park’s new Slingshot ride, in a former “green” area just behind the Kick’n Chicken food stand near the old entrance to Déjà Vu.
(7/30/12) The latest pictures shot at Magic Mountain show off more Sling Shot pieces on site, as well as the ride car. Check them out as The Coaster Guy.
(7/20/12) According to a report at The Coaster Guy, the new Sling Shot will be from Funtime (no surprise there as they have sold Six Flags other Sling Shots as well as the Sky Screamers). They also report that it will actually be installed in the old Déjà Vu location and likely be ready by August.
(7/17/12) The latest word on those mystery colored steel pieces at SFMM is that they are not for a Sky Screamer at all. Instead look for these to become part of a new upcharge Slingshot / Springshot style attraction. If I had to guess, I’d say that this may still end up going on the old Thrill Shot pad.
(7/16/12) We know that a new Premier Rides coaster is coming to Six Flags Magic Mountain for 2013… but could The Mountain have a second surprise in store for everyone? According to a picture posted at Theme Park Review some very colorful looking steel pieces have arrived on site just behind (and to the left side) of Apocalypse. The colors seem to match up with the colors Six Flags has been using on their Sky Screamer rides lately (except for the Killer Bee color scheme used at Fiesta Texas). There is some thought that the park could possibly be looking to add a Sky Screamer as well which would likely be placed on the former home of the S&S Thrill Shot ride that was removed earlier this year. Anyone know more?
2013 - Full Throttle - (6/13/13) Good news from Six Flags Magic Mountain, the park has announced that Full Throttle will open for guests on Saturday, June 22nd, with a special Media preview event taking place on June 21st. In the meantime, check out the video below which shows off the site as they finish things up along with video of Full Throttle making test runs from all angles.
(6/10/13) As I predicted last week, testing has begun on Full Throttle at last. You can catch a brief video (though it is sideways unfortunately…) embedded below.
(6/5/13) We’ve got a new Full Throttle construction update video this week, as the trains are now being loaded onto the tracks and I would guess they might be ready to start testing any day now. So if you’re in the park this week, keep an eye on the sky.
(4/29/13) ThemeParkPOVs is back with another Full Throttle construction update this week.
(4/15/13) A video showing off the Topping Off of Full Throttle at Six Flags Magic Mountain has been added below, shot by ThemeParkPOVs. You can also find a ton of photos posted to TPR.
As for that world’s record claim, we finally have some clarification on the issue sent to one of our readers. According to an e-mail sent out by Sue Carpenter, “The vertical loop on Full Throttle will be a world record 160 feet. You will be launched into the loop at 70 mph. That is what we are referring to when we say “tallest and fastest looping coaster.” Yes, we have taller coasters and faster coasters, but Full Throttle will be the tallest and fastest looping coaster.” So there you have it…
(4/12/13) Good news for Full Throttle, as the park topped off the coaster’s massive double-sided inversion earlier today. Click here to see the picture tweeted out from the topping off by Six Flags Magic Mountain.
(4/10/13) A ton of new Full Throttle construction photos have been posted over at TPR.
(4/8/13) The latest construction update from Full Throttle at SFMM can be found over at ThemeParkPOVs this week.
(4/3/13) The official song of Full Throttle called “Live It Up” by Airbourne can now be heard in the video clip embedded below.
(4/2/13) A construction video showing off the progress on Full Throttle has been posted to YouTube this week. The giant inversion with the double-sided track sections are now going into place. One of our readers also sent in pictures of this new style track to share as well.
(3/28/13) A brief article about Full Throttle mentions that along with the park’s 18th roller coaster, the area around Full Throttle will also feature an area for families with kids not tall enough (below 54”) to ride it, as well as a new restaurant called High Octane Wings, which will feature original sauces. Yum! SFMM, can you send me a sampler?
(3/27/13) A new Full Throttle construction update from SFMM has been posted to TPR.
(3/18/13) A new Full Throttle construction update has been posted to TPR this week which has a truly fantastic view of the twisting inversion track section where Full Throttle goes over the entrance pathway for Superman: Escape From Krypton.
(3/12/13) A new construction update for Full Throttle has been posted to TPR this week. Check it out.
(3/7/13) A fantastic picture was sent in by a reader today, giving us a look at Full Throttle’s drop down into the old Metro tunnel… which you will then get launched backwards up this spike before falling back down for a forward launch up and over the giant look on the other side of the mountain.
(2/28/13) Premier Rides tweeted out a picture earlier today (added below) showing off a piece of track on Full Throttle being positioned for installation. On a related note you can also see the latest update posted to TheCoasterGuy, freshly back from a Hard Hat on site construction tour of Full Throttle.
(2/20/13) Look for vertical construction to begin at last on Full Throttle, as I’ve been told a very large construction crane has finally arrived on-site this week. You can see a few pictures of the huge crane posted to TheCoasterGuy.
(2/8/13) Six Flags has announced a partnership with Roadrunner Records (part of Warner Music Group) that will see the first ever release of an original song created for a roller coaster. From the Australian rock band, Airbourne, a special version of the song “Live It Up” will be played at the opening of Full Throttle at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
This special ‘Full Throttle edition’ of the song will be played throughout the newly themed 5-acre area surrounding the new coaster, along with other music tracks from other Roadrunner artists. “Live it Up” will be a track on the band’s upcoming new album, “Black Dog Barking” which should be released on May 21st. (Which means there is going to be a serious race on to see if they can get the coaster open before the album is released…)
(2/7/13) Thrill Capital Insider has posted a brief construction update video for Full Throttle this week but unfortunately it doesn’t look like much of anything has changed since last week as they are just focused on pouring all the footers at the moment. Screamscape sources tell us that we probably shouldn’t expect to see Full Throttle open until at least June at this point which is disappointing considering how long ago they chose to demolish the Log Jammer.
(1/31/13) I’m scratching my head this evening, as Six Flags Magic Mountain has re-published their Full Throttle detail page, and it’s the same one as before with the false claims about being the “tallest, fastest looping roller coaster in the world”. I don’t get it.
(1/28/13) It is interesting to note that Six Flags Magic Mountain has taken down their press release with the false sounding world-record claims for Full Throttle, which is a good thing. As of right now the Full Throttle page is blank, other than the graphic at the top. I expect we’ll see a new promotional page added sometime later this week.
(1/21/13) TPR has posted a new construction review of Full Throttle this week, showing off the construction site where they are busy still pouring footers on the site of the old Log Jammer, while various track and support pieces for the coaster are piled up in the back of the parking lot. They have also prepared the footer sites for where Full Throttle will fly over the Superman pathway and dive down into the old Metro tunnel.
(1/18/13) Premier Rides shared a picture on Facebook earlier today showing off a load of supports loaded onto the back of a truck, set to depart for Magic Mountain.
(1/14/13) I’m not one to nitpick, but from time to time I do feel the need to call a park out on the carpet and today I noticed something a bit off with how Six Flags Magic Mountain is promoting Full Throttle. According to the official page for Full Throttle, they are now saying it will have the record for “tallest, fastest looping coaster in the world” which doesn’t seem right to me.
The only stats listed in the press release and on the website are a 160 foot tall loop and a 70 mph top speed from the launch system, and yet the park’s own X2 coaster is both taller (215 ft drop w/ 175 ft height) and faster (76 mph). Just next door, Viper is also taller (188 ft) and matches Full Throttle’s speed of 70 mph. So with two other coasters, just in the same park, that are both taller and faster than Full Throttle, I just don’t understand how they can promote Full Throttle that way.
It is true that when Full Throttle opens, it will have the world’s tallest vertical loop at 160 feet, but that is the only world record that I can see Full Throttle taking at this point as there are other coasters out there in the world that I think would also fall into the taller/faster w/ inversions category. Storm Runner at Hersheypark for example has a huge 180 foot drop in mid-ride and launches riders out at 75 mph with three inversions along the way. Mr. Freeze at Six Flags over Texas and St. Louis has a height of 218 ft at the top of the spike, and also launches at 70 mph, with one inversion taken both forward and backwards. Full Throttle is a unique and fun looking ride, but for now, I’m not ready to concede that it will be the “tallest, fastest looping coaster in the world”.
(12/18/12) More good news today as the first track pieces for Full Throttle are now on site, laid out in the far back overflow lot as usual. Check out the pictures of the first pieces here.
(11/2/12) A new construction report for Full Throttle has been posted to ThemeParkOverload this week, including a look at some new developments over by the old Metro tunnel entrance.
(10/29/12) More serious construction on Full Throttle work site has begun. Check out the latest pics posted at TheCoasterGuy.
(8/31/12) Fans of The Mountain… here it is, the park’s latest new giant coaster… Full Thottle, which promises to be the tallest and fastest looping coaster in the world with a total of three high speed launches up to 70mph. As rumored, you’ll launch right into the coaster’s 160 foot vertical loop, twist up and over the Superman Plaza where you’ll hit the Dive Loop dropping you down into the old monorail tunnel where the train will come to a dead stop in the fog filled tunnel. From here you launch backwards up through the Dive Loop before freefalling back down into the tunnel and launch a third time out and up over the massive Top Hat element built onto the top of the vertical loop, diving back to the ground at the end and into the brake run. Check out the video below on this very unique coaster experience, making this the 18th coaster for Six Flags Magic Mountain.
(8/30/12) While we eagerly await the final announcement about Full Throttle in a few hours, today’s rumor has more to do with how the ride will reuse the old monorail tunnel through the mountain itself. The tunnel will not be a station as some have suspected, as the real station will go up near where the Log Jammer station was. Once the train launches through the huge vertical loop, I’m told it will actually rise up the mountain, climbing over the Superman plaza area, before it turns and dives back down and right into the old Metro tunnel on the far side of the park.
What exactly will happen inside the tunnel is a bit of a mystery, as they are hoping to add some kind of special effects in here. The mystery part isn’t that no one knows… it has more to do with the fact that the final budget for the ride is not entirely set, and things like this have a tendency to get cut from the budget once construction starts. (Anyone else remember those fog filled “tunnels” that were supposed to be added to X2?)
What I do know is that your train will apparently come to a stop in the tunnel, and much like Superman: Ultimate Flight from SFDK, your launch out of the tunnel will actually begin with a reverse launch back up the hill to gain a little extra momentum before you fall forward back into the tunnel and launch out at “Full Throttle” into that giant top hat.
(8/28/12) According to the latest rumor, Full Throttle may appear at first to be somewhat of a one trick pony… but much like the Superman coaster Premier built at SFDK, there will be a little more to the overall experience. For example, you may recall that rumor about it offering the world’s largest vertical loop. Now imagine getting to experience it twice… once on the “inside” and once more “on the outside”.
Confused yet? Then just try to imagine what the top half of the track on the inversion would look like if there two sets of rails sticking out from the spine instead of just one. One that would ride the inside of the loop… and the other that will ride it out on the top side, creating a top hat style element. The mind boggles… I just hope oddest of odd rumors holds out to be true.
(8/24/12) Screamscape sources tell us that the Full Throttle coaster will indeed attempt to claim the record for having the tallest inversion in the world, featuring a launch up into a loop around the 160 ft range. Cedar Fair apparently got wind of things and decided to beat them to the punch by claiming that GateKeeper’s roll-over at the top of the lift at 170 feet in the air would really be the world’s tallest inversion.
(4/24/12) Several SFMM locals have reported over at CoasterFusion about receiving an e-mail survey to get their opinion on the name “Full Throttle” for a future park attraction. One very very interesting question in the survey seems to give away a possible major spoiler for the ride experience. “Lets’s say that at some point in themiddle of the full throttle themed ride there is some kind of tunnel. During this ride you’d shoot into the tunnel at 500 miles per hour, stop short, wait a few moments and then fly out of the tunnel backwards the way you came in. What kind of experience would you want to have in the tunnel? Keep in mind that the ride is only going to be in the tunnel for several seconds before they shoot back out backwards. What should they experience?”
Wow… while the 500mph bit is complete over-hype… the basic concept here sounds very interesting experience may be planned for the former monorail tunnel inside the mountain itself.
(4/23/12) A new video showing off the latest progress in the former Log Jammer site has been posted to YouTube and embedded below.
(4/18/12) Remember that slip on Facebook several weeks ago when the official Six Flags account mentioned that SFMM’s 2013 coaster would be named Full Throttle? (Before it was quickly pulled…) Well, it looks like they are still serious about that name as Six Flags has just filed for the trademark use to use the name ‘Full Throttle’ for a theme park ride on April 4th, 2012.
(3/13/12) A reader sent in another very sad looking shot of the former Log Jammer site at SFMM. Hard to believe that one of the world’s biggest log rides (for a time) used to reside here. Whatever The Mountain has planned… it better be good.
(3/9/12) The LA Times has reported an interesting story where it seems like the Six Flags Facebook page accidentally leaked the proposed name for the 2013 coaster… only to yank it down later on. According to the report and people on the various fan sites who read it before it was deleted, the plan was to call it “Full Throttle”, and it sounds like it will have two launches and may attempt to take the record for having the tallest inversion in the world. The old Metro tunnel is also rumored to play a roll here… possible used as a launch tunnel for ride’s LIMs to help keep them out of the direct sunlight and elements. (Besides... the name makes me smile. I hope they keep Full Throttle if they can... brings back memories of playing the old LucasArts video game from the good old days.)
(2/27/12) Screamscape sources who attended West Coast Bash came back with a little info about what The Mountain has in store for the old Log Jammer site. For starters… it wont be an AquaTrax. (LOL!) It will be big enough that I’m hearing that the park may have to make an announcement around July 4th however, and that will will break some kind of record. The removal of the old Metro monorail beamway will continue to remove it inside the old tunnel station as well. That’s said, I think it’s safe to assume that whatever this new coaster will be may put the old tunnel to use for something. Could be a queue… but if it was big enough for the Metro, it should be big enough for a coaster car to pass through, right?
Speaking of which… I wouldn’t count on seeing anything from B&M go in here. The rumored list of supplier is short, but so far my top leads have led me to believe we could be seeing some kind of new creation from Premier Rides. Premier is building the new Superman concept coaster at SFDK for 2012 after all and impressed the coaster fans at Kennywood with SkyRocket back in 2010, and has always been known for their impressive Launched coasters (Mr. Freeze is still awe inspiring BTW), just to give you an some ideas of what kind of elements could be included here.
(2/21/12) Magic Mountain hasn’t wasted any time in removing the Log Jammer. There are some good pictures of the cleared site, bulldozers and all, posted over at All American Thrills this week. Whatever The Mountain has planned for 2013, they aren’t wasting any time in getting started, so I’ve got to imagine that they may have something special in the works. They also check out the Lex Luthor site, but there really isn’t anything to see yet.
(2/10/12) It’s still a bit too early to lock in anything for the SFMM 2013 project just yet, but with demolition fully under way, what we have heard so far is what it wont be. Screamscape sources confirm that this is not expected to be a B&M coaster of any kind, so throw out all those long rumored Dive Machine rumors that have been brewing forever. (Which is just disappointing, the terrain of the Log Jammer site would have made for a great themed Dive Machine...)
(2/7/12) Demolition work has begun at Six Flags Magic Mountain on the old Log Jammer ride area. The station building itself is fairly removed, though from the midway it may look more intact than it is due to the façade out front still standing. The splashdown lagoon is being torn up and they’ve even begun work to demolish the old Metro monorail station across the midway from the Log Jammer as well, along with a few sections of the Metro’s nearby beamways.
(1/27/12) The first 2012 edition of the SFMM GoBigCam video blog ends with what some are thinking could possibly be a clue about the park’s 2013 attraction. While the theme of the video is about working out, the hostess ends it by posing in front of a Wonder Woman backdrop and says, “Maybe by 2013 I’ll look like that,” in reference to Wonder Woman. With Six Flags seeming to have a renewed focus on ride’s themed after the DC Comics characters, could it be time for a Wonder Woman themed coaster all these years?
Now in all seriousness, this “clue” is probably way way WAY off track here. After all, the new 2013 coaster is supposed to take over the Log Jammer spot, which is located no where near the DC Universe section of the park. So I really don’t put any stock into this idea at all. I’ve got a feeling we could be seeing something with a more unique theme coming in 2013.
(11/3/11) Sue Carpenter, spokeswoman for Six Flags Magic Mountain confirmed to the local news that the Log Jammer is now closed, to be removed to make way for a future park expansion project which will be announced sometime in 2012. So at least we know where to keep our eyes focused for the park’s 2013 ride plans… lets just hope they try to work in some of the natural landscaping and water features leftover from the Log Jammer into the new ride.
(11/2/11) With the demise of the Log Jammer happening any day now, you can take one last look at the ride as it stands today over at Theme Park Review, as well as catch some pictures of Déjà Vu coming down.
(10/28/11) Sad news today regarding the fate of the Log Jammer at SFMM. I’ve been told that a sign in a ‘break room’ at SFMM indicated that the Log Jammer only had a few days left to run. The basic gist of seems to be that the Log Jammer will be no more following Halloween.
(10/19/11) Its been a few weeks, and I’m sorry to say that the rumors about the possible removal of Log Jammer from SFMM have not let up. As wrong as it seems to remove a classic “log ride” from any park… I’m starting to get worried the rumor could be true. If so… get your last rides in while you still can, or regret it forever.
(9/19/11) To be honest, this is the first I’ve heard of the following rumor… and I have yet to get the story fully double-checked with any other sources at this point, so I have to remain skeptical about it still. That said, a report has come in claiming that Magic Mountain may be considering the possible removal of the popular Log Jammer flume ride. I really hope not, as it get hot beyond belief in the summer at The Mountain, and that park really needs more water rides, not less. Even today, I think the Log Jammer probably has the most consistently long line of all the park’s water rides. If anyone has anything else to share about this, please do let me know.
2015/2016 - Rumor - Iron Colossus - (4/15/13) According to the latest rumors the Iron Horse treatment for Colossus has been slotted to reopen for 2015, though there is a slight chance it could be pushed back to 2016 if the stars align on another project first. Unlike the quick transformation of Rattler at Fiesta Texas, this is expected to be more of a major overhaul, more along the lines of the lengthy Texas Giant job. This will require the once mighty Colossus to be down for a period of 12-16 months. So for Colossus to be reborn in Spring 2015 it will end up having to close down to begin the project in Late 2013. Stay tuned as we try to keep up to date on what could be the most important new coaster to ever open at ‘The Mountain’ that could create an all time new world record for the park that may never be broken.
(1/10/13) Screamscape sources tell us that management at Six Flags Magic Mountain may have received early confirmation that Colossus will be tapped to be the next Six Flags coaster to get the Iron Horse treatment following the transformation of Rattler to Iron Rattler at Fiesta Texas this year. No word yet on just how much will be changed, but the iconic support structure is expected to remain essentially the same. If true, look for Colossus to go away forever before the end of the year, though it seems like the park may try to promote the final days of Colossus rather than just quietly shut it down, so you may get some early warning.
(2/27/12) During West Coaster Bash Six Flags management did confirm that they were still seriously considering performing a full Rocky Mountain Hybrid transformation job on Colossus in the future. What it is coming down to however is to see if they think that they can get a return on investment for the project… which essentially means that they want to know if they can promote Colossus to the general public as a new coaster experience and lure in the crowds. (It seemed to have worked with X2, and certainly it seems like The Texas Giant was able to hit the target as the ride was reported as being packed all last summer).
(1/30/12) It’s a bit early to lock down this project, but I’m hearing that after The Rattler, Colossus may indeed be the next Six Flags coaster to get a major overhaul from Rocky Mountain Coasters. Look for this in either 2014 or 2015 and I’ll leave you with this little tidbit... if the rumors I’m hearing are true, the name Colossus may mean something to the world once again.
(4/25/11) Screamscape sources indicate that following the successful opening and transformation of the Texas Giant this past weekend, management has now set their eyes upon the next candidate for transformation. We’ve heard it rumored before, but now it seems like a good bet that Colossus at Magic Mountain will be the next woodie to ride the Iron Horse rail system. Much like the transformation of the Texas Giant, I’m told that the ideas they are planning for Colossus will be quite shocking and take it to the next level. Stay tuned!
(6/5/10) I’ve got a soft spot for Colossus at SFMM… after all it was the woodie I rode most as a kid growing up in SoCal. I remembering riding it with the 3-Bench PTC trains in the early years and on the 2-Bench California style Morgan trains that were added in later years. I’ve even ridden it backwards many times using a borrowed B&M train from the Psyclone coaster. That said… I’m hearing that Colossus is due to another revamp sometime in the next few years… as the Morgan trains are coming to the end of their lifespan and need replacing. Facing the aspect of buying some costly new coaster trains, management is hoping to find a way to market this costly expense in their favor and all eyes are keeping careful tabs on the Texas Giant rebuild in progress, as Colossus is said to be a possible candidate for the process as well.
If Colossus does get the green light, it’s said that we could very well see some huge changes made to the ride’s layout in order to spice things up like banking those slow flat turns, and making the hills even more thrilling and full of airtime. Yep… I think it would be a great idea to make remodel Colossus back into the monster coaster it could be once again, so cross your fingers.
