    Re: RUMOR: Colossus to get major Refurbishment in 2014?

    I guess it's good to see the park is taking some initiative on maintaining its rides.

      I was going to say the same thing. But actually I would put Colossus somewhere near the smooth end of the scale. Not the smoothest of the 63 woodies I've ridden, but a majority are rougher.

        i really want to see the layout of Colossus 2.0 because the other Rocky Mountain coasters are not out and back
        Take a look at some of my models I make at kolbykonnection.com

          Hopefully they will, refurbished rides make them look like they are brand new
          The new Star Wars plot summery:

          Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

          Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

          Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

            Rocky Mountain has done work on out and back coasters.

              ^ They've done work on them, but haven't done the Iron Horse retrack on an out and back coaster, which is what the rumor is.

              I'd be totally fine with just the Topper Track re-do for Colossus and it being restored to it's original layout. But that likely won't bring people to SFMM.

                ^ Correct. But that's not what mratigan said. And he(?) said "other coasters", and Rocky Mountain only has one coaster with Iron Horse track, so I thought he was talking about all Rocky Mountain coasters.

                Too bad SFMM didn't keep Psyclone to do an IH retrack, or at least topper track.

                  Wait, what's a "roller coaster conversion"?

                    What happened to the B&M trains from Psyclone. I do believe those are the only wooden coaster trains that B&M ever manufactured.
                    Current coaster count: 179
                    100th coaster: Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood
                    150th coaster: Intimidator at Carowinds
                    last new park addition: Six Flags Great America

                      ^For the last number of years, they were being used when Colossus ran backwards. So they're still around, and if they continue with that tradition, I imagine they'll still be around.
                      Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                        i was counting the Iron Rattler too.

                          I actually had the idea the other day that since Colossus is 2 tracks they should do one side the crazy TX Giant/Iron Rattler way and the other half just the topper track restored to it's ORIGINAL layout. Could have the new design flip around and over the original layout.

                          Maybe I'll have to recommend this to Tim next time I see him although I'd imagine it's something they've thought of.
