Twisted Colossus Hard Hat Tour *Final Tour Before Opening!*

Postby fatdaddy » Wed Nov 26, 2014 3:06 pm

Twisted Colossus construction tour! Okay, here's the skinny, I won't go into too much detail...because you probably know everything already. So, here are some pictures and a few small progress updates from the tour. Really, it looks amazing and the work seems to be moving along at a fast pace. Can't wait to ride it! Pictures...

Two queues will become one big one.

Used to be something here I think.

After 36 hours of riding they decided that my awesomeness could not be equaled and just completely tore this side of the coaster out. Once it reopens thousands will come just to stand on this spot. Of course they'll have to get in line for Twisted Colossus, but hey that'll be fun too.

Amazing pictures of what will surely be an amazing ride. That pre-lift section in blue looks so wrong but it looks so right :b

I want to see how they will fix the part where the fire was. I wonder if they could have made it higher with a steeper drop?

Touring Twisted Colossus...how could any report be bad? Seriously those RMC guys never seemed to stop moving, this thing will be built in no time.

Great pictures! I can't wait to ride this coaster. It's going to be the best new thrill ride in Southern California since Tatsu.

Thank you for this update, Colossus' pre-lift section looks so weird and awesome! Have they installed any new track pieces lately? The fire's location kind of stopped them from installing the first drop. Maybe they'll install the track in reverse from brake run?
