VALENCIA, Calif. (May 1, 2015) – Four minutes of thrills on 5,000 feet of track—that’s what a new ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain promises.
The “Twisted Colossus” is billed as the longest hybrid coaster in the world, according to park officials. The ride combines a wooden structure with a “state-of-the-art Iron Horse track.”
It’ll feature a steep 116-foot drop, 18 airtime lifts and a “High Five” where two trains face each other as they pass through a turn. The ride also boasts the “Top Gun Stall”—an inversion where the train slows while upside down.
The ride, which is set to open May 23, replaces the original Colossus, which opened on June 29, 1978. That ride was retired last August.
