^ they needed to get rid of it so they could add a block and run 3 trains per side...which we all know they do frequently :roll: eesh

Lets just say Colossus isn't going anywhere, or getting rid of any blocks.

But I agree with the thought of better flats coming in. Thats the one thing I always mention when talking about the recent Magic Mountain changes

Its funny, everyone wants the double down back. No doubt that removing the midcourse would esthetically clean up the ride, but I don’t think it really added much to the ride experience. If anything were to come back, I would want the original profiling of the ride to return. Well, at least the original double up. Oh, and new trains as well.

They might aswell return the double down. I doubt they will run three trains on a side anytime soon.

Overall, the ride needs a tremendous overhaul. It hurts and feels like it will just collapse any minute.

Today? But Kristen was just born! Then again, maybe she probably IS in an incubator...

Oh well, I was going to say...


I can't wait to see it in person in exactly ONE week!

Now that that is taken care of, I'd expect them to get to flashback very soon! :b
