Gayle Anderson was live in Valencia to experience the new rollercoaster TWISTED COLOSSUS at Magic Mountain.
Magic Mountain officials say it’s set to debut Saturday, May 23! Wood meets steel when the iconic woodie returns as the new Twisted Colossus — the longest, most innovative hybrid coaster in the world. Still in its landmark location along the perimeter of Six Flags Magic Mountain and nestled inside the tracks of the behemoth coaster, Goliath, Twisted Colossus will remain the coaster monument most recognizable to millions of people who pass by the park each year…but now with an exciting twist.
Integrated into the beautiful crosshatching of white wood will be intertwined track, steep banks and unrelenting rolls and spirals. Revel in the fun and excitement of traditional wooden coaster thrills while facing your fears on the latest state-of-the-art coaster technology. Twisted Colossus will be the best of both worlds, a modern marvel soon to make roller coaster history.

With its unique construction, Twisted Colossus features:
• “Top Gun Stall” – an inversion where the train slows down upside down
• Western Hemisphere’s first “High Five” – where two trains pass through an overbanked turn facing each other with the illusion that riders can reach out and “high five” each other
• Zero G Roll where track twists 360 degrees
• A staggering 116-foot drop at an amazing 80-degrees
• 18 airtime hills
• Two lift hills
• Four minutes of thrills on nearly 5,000 feet of track – longest hybrid coaster in the world
The original Colossus wooden coaster opened on June 29, 1978 and offered its farewell run on August 17, 2014. For more information about Twisted Colossus (including a video), click HERE.
