Scott And Carol Present - Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain

Alan Schilke and Fred Grubb are teaming up yet again to repurpose and iconic wooden roller coaster, this time at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The Colossus is no more, being replaced by Twisted Colossus.

Bonnie Rabjohn, President and General Manager of Six Flags Magic Mountain talks about the latest to her park, continuing their dominance as the park with the most roller coasters in the world. She wants everyone to come and ride all four trains.

Les Hudson is responsible for theming and generally making the parks somewhere you want to visit. He explains how Rocky Mountain Construction accomplished the correct vision of the train.

Here is the leaders of the team that put Twisted Colossus together.

Alan Schilke talks about the layout of Twisted Colossus, and of some of the twists in the creative process journey he took to bring the project to fruition. It's not easy to convert a racing coaster into a Mobius coaster, with many interacting elements.

No people, just some Twisted Colossus train goodness. Opening this coming spring, this remake of Colossus will combine new technology with classic airtime. With this to wait for, it's going to be a long winter, even if it should be warm in Southern California.
