    Spinning Tea cups

  3. Onjel Wells Onjel Wells says:

    That thing looks great!!!! No wonder why we loved it so much!!! Remember when they used to run it backwards at night!!!!!

  4. Onjel Wells Onjel Wells says:

    What!!!! Are you trying to put in the grave early or something!!!! I don’t even think it’s safe for me to get in those spinning tea cups these days….

  5. Onjel Wells….
    Get yourself out here!! I know we’re old now but let’s have one last go round…. We could stay at the Hotel in case we get tired …. Recoup and go back in

  6. Onjel Wells Onjel Wells says:

    Deidre Dillard Bowen remember when it was new! Colossus. Wooden roller coaster, right?

  7. Onjel Wells Onjel Wells says:

    Deidre Dillard Bowen
    Seeing that roller coaster was like the beginning of the best dream ever coming to life! We knew we were for fun fun fun all day and night until the park closed and the put us out!

  8. How very sad … Sad and unnecessary~~

  11. Carl Viereck Carl Viereck says:

    Out with the old in with the new

  12. Carol Ryan Carol Ryan says:

    Good things never last.

  13. Ok first of all, it’s possible that this ride will close permanently. However, it is also very possible to be refurbished by Rocky Mountain Construction. No other information was released about the closing of Colossus, so how can any of us directly assume that it will be shut down forever? According to your own source, Six Flags has NOT released any other information about the ride. It could be refurbished, and it could be shut down. None of us should even directly assume anything yet until more information is released.

  14. Bummer! I loved that ride.

  15. Candi Nicole now we really have to use those passes

  16. This was the first coaster I ever rode the first time I went to six flags. This saddens me because it was the day my dad and I did something together in over 4 years. Lots of great memories here.

  17. This is just heartbreaking. I may have just moved to Florida but I want my two little kids to go there one day and ride that ride! It was my first “big people ride”

  18. Marc Molina Marc Molina says:

    Sell it to a local park .

    They can’t do that. I got stuck in that coaster going backwards on Halloween night for 45 minutes. You can’t ask for more then that. Someone start a petition.

    • Amy Sparks Amy Sparks says:

      It’s been in the works for years. The new norm is revamped wooden coasters! Rocky Mountain Construction steel Iron Horse track makeover like Texas Giant, Rattler, and Medusa on three other large Six Flags wooden coasters.
