UPDATE: Six Flags Magic Mountain issued this statement on their Facebook page: “The fire at the top of the lift hill on Colossus is out. It happened while work was being done to disassemble the ride. The park was closed and there were no injuries. Colossus has been closed since August 17 for renovation. Plans for the spring debut of Twisted Colossus are still on track.”
So it looks like this will not have any effect on the construction of Twisted Colossus. Good to hear!
I just got sent this on TMZ and wanted to share with everyone. Apparently there is currently a fire on the now defunct Colossus roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The fire department was called to the scene around 1:30 P.M. PDT. No word on what caused the fire.
Colossus just closed last month to make way for a new steel/hybrid coaster called Twisted Colossus. We will keep you posted on how this will affect the Twisted Colossus construction.
We will keep you updated.
