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.

    These rides are definitely on my to-do list for 2016. I try to hit up Six Flags Magic Mountain whenever I am in the LA area. I saw some of the Twisted Colossus construction first hand last time I was out there earlier this year. And I definitely am lining up a trip to Six Flags New England. I’ve been making my rounds to all the Six Flags parks across the country. I definitely am looking forward to finally getting to experience Bizarro and see exactly why it’s frequently rated as the top coaster in the world! Wicked Cyclone solidifies that park as a destination for roller coaster enthusiasts. Plus I haven’t gotten to ride Goliath since its days as Deja Vu at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Exciting times for a coaster fan!
