Twisted Colossus is a steel hybrid roller coaster currently operating at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. It opened on 23 May 2015.

Twisted Colossus uses much of the support structure from the former Colossus wooden roller coaster. The project was carried out by Rocky Mountain Construction.

Design[edit | edit source]


Twisted Colossus allows two trains to race each other on similar track with elements placed differently, allowing for some near-misses. Unlike a true twin roller coaster, Twisted Colossus is one long roller coaster; once a train finishes the blue section it heads straight into the green section without stopping at the station.

Twisted Colossus is the second roller coaster to feature a high five element, where both tracks run parallel, banked at 90 degrees. This gives the illusion of being able to high-five passengers on the other train if riders have their hands in the air.

Trains[edit | edit source]

4 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.

The train design of Twisted Colossus was revealed on November 18, 2014 at IAAPA 2014, where the lead car was on show.
