Twisted Colossus Pre-Lift Track Hills

By on 09/28/2014

I was sent the following two photos anonymously today from someone at Six Flags Magic Mountain. This is the new Twisted Colossus track between the station and lift hill. From the photos I shared yesterday in my Twisted Colossus construction update #3, you saw where the track disappeared around a corner and behind the trees. This is the continuation of that track, as it makes its way to the first lift hill.

That’s the station behind the trees. The track emerges from behind the trees on the left and into a series of dips and twists. The turquoise support columns are for Goliath:

Here’s what the track looks like heading towards the lift hill. I think this is pretty telling that the addition of the name “Twisted” was anything but random:

Just to be clear, I did not take these photos. I’m not even at the park today. However, they are being shared exclusively through this site.

Is this getting anyone any more excited about this ride now?

    Well it’s definitely an interesting start to the ride! I’m more anxious to see what speed the trains will be doing at that section. It can’t be faster than 10 mph at most since it’s literally right after the station.

    Damn this is some of the loads of airtime even before the lift. Looks insane!

    Why does it seem like one of the steel support beems is knocked over under the track in the second photo?

      I agree, it does look like that, maybe it didn’t fit?

      Maybe it’s there for extra suport?

    Am I confused or not seeing things right? Is the track already in place or just stored in that location?

      Nope, it’s there for life!

    I venture to guess these will provide very little if any airtime as the train will probably be creeping through this section. Just a fun little pre game

      It won’t creep through this section. There is a drop right before these hills.

    I hope it dosnt eerk n jerk through the hills seeing as how the train will probably be longer than these hills..know what I mean?

      I doubt they would be that careless

    So far, Six Flags has released on-ride front seat POV video of SFNE’s Wicked Cyclone. We’re awaiting the release of on-ride front seat POV video of SFMM’s Twisted Colossus… what front seat riders will see leaving the station, to the ride cycle (2 lift hills, 2 high-fives, 2 inversions), and the return to the station.

    Looked at the first pic and thought ‘wow, some little hills, they look fun’, and then I saw the second picture and was like :O that looks insane!

    I am a bit confused as to which sie is being used and which side is being removed.I thought “B” side was taken out and “A” side was being used (as you face the entrance “A” side is on the right)
