In May 2013 we asked you guys what Six Flags wooden coaster you would like to most see get the "Rocky Mountain Treatment" as it's been called. This is in reference to the extreme makeovers that the Texas Giant and Rattler have received, transforming those rides forever and radically changing their ride profiles.
I picked some potential candidates from most of the parks, and let you guys do the rest.

So how could Colossus benefit from the help of Rocky Mountain Construction? Maybe the question is how couldn't it! Jokes aside, it would be interesting to see the racing concept utilized with a new design, I can only imagine the wicked things they could come up with. There's certainly plenty of structure to work with!
The second place finisher was The Boss at Six Flags St. Louis. That ride opened in 2000 and was created by Custom Coasters International. It has some really large drops and a unique layout, but the general consensus is that it is bumpy as all get out.

Third place went to Rolling Thunder at Six Flags Great Adventure. Another racing ride, though on a slightly smaller scale than Colossus, all of the potential for a crazy new layout still exists. You can see the rest of the individual coaster results above.
Our new poll is up, and it dates back to the swinging '70s!
