Twisted Colossus is now officially open to park guests!
So we got the chance of riding Twisted Colossus multiple times this past week. All we have to say is that this is one of the smoothest roller coasters we have ever been on at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Twisted Colossus looks so refreshing and full of vibrant colors. It’s seriously one of the best looking coasters at the park.
The New Screampunk District is gorgeous!
And just like that, Twisted Colossus is officially open!
Man! Just Look at those steep drops at nearly 80°
Be sure to check out the an all new acrobatics Kwerk show. We were treated to a preview and it sure didn’t disappoint.

Here are some interesting and fun facts about Twisted Colossus directly from Six Flags website and press release:
Twisted Colossus, the next generation of the beloved wooden roller coaster that thrilled millions of guests in its 36-year reign at the park, will be a unique technological marvel combining an iconic wooden structure with state-of-the-art Iron Horse Track. The advanced technology, available exclusively at Six Flags, provides ride experiences never before possible on wooden coasters, such as over-banked turns and inversions. Twisted Colossus will feature numerous exciting components including a “Top Gun” element, the western hemisphere’s first “High Five” element, and a Zero G Roll.
With its unique construction, Twisted Colossus will feature:
“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 you can reach out and “high five” other riders
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
