Colossus was a twin track racing wooden coaster that was built in 1978. For 2015, the ride is getting a a steel track makeover. As Twisted Colossus, this roller coaster will not only race, but also but will also include two loops and a high-five element where the trains are tilted at 90-degrees toward each other. With the riders’ hands in the air, they’ll get the sense that they can reach out and high five the riders from the other train; although they won’t really be that close. You can see it in action in this POV video of Dualing Dragon. Like the reborn Wicked Cyclone at Six Flags New England, this is another smart move from Six Flags. I was hoping we’d see an old racer transformed this way (Racing Woodies Need an Upgrade). I understand there are woodie purists that probably don’t like the trend of making wooden coasters more steel-like in feel and elements, but there are some rougher rides that can get an exciting new lease on life. Colossus is a perfect example. It was a rough, bumpy low-light of my trip to Magic Mountain. Now riders can expect a thrilling and smooth ride.

Reply Judy P in Pgh March 22, 2015 And Lightning Racer has great lighting effects at night to add to that feeling of speed. The best thing though … re-rides allowed if there is not no waiting in your queue! Reply DRU March 23, 2015 Hey judy I was wondering if you know if they ever let you do a double on Kennywood’s Racer so you can do the whole mobius loop in one seating? Reply Judy P in Pgh March 24, 2015 I’ve gotten consecutive rides on Thunderbolt and Jack Rabbit, but never on The Racer.
