Six Flags Twisted Colossus, Wicked Cyclone Testing
It’s a West Coast versus East Coast as two Six Flags parks prepare to open their respective Rocky Mountain Construction hybrid coasters. Magic Mountain is testing Twisted Colossus while New England readies Wicked Cyclone.
And fortunately for us, videos of both coasters testing are now online.
First up, we have Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The former racing Colossus wooden coaster has been transformed into a single-track coaster that allows trains to duel against one another. Unfortunately, the video below does not showcase two trains dueling:
The coaster will feature nearly 5,000 feet of track along with the following:
- The first “High Five” element in North America (made famous by the Dualing Dragon at Happy Valley in China)
- A “Top Gun Stall” element where trains will slow during an inversion
- A Zero-G roll
Twisted Colossus is expected to open May 23, 2015.
Meanwhile, Six Flags New England is testing Wicked Cyclone, a revamp of the park’s 1983 Cyclone wooden coaster:
The coaster stands nearly 11 stories tall and features over 3,300 feet of track.
An exact opening date for Wicked Cyclone has not been revealed yet.
