Six Flags Magic Mountain to close Colossus on August 16
Written by Robert Niles
Six Flags Magic Mountain will be closing its 36-year-old wooden roller coaster, Colossus, on August 16, the park confirmed today.Tweet
Magic Mountain has been running the roller coaster backwards as part of a promotion this spring. (Batman the Ride also has been running backwards.) The coaster opened in June 1978. There's no immediate word on a replacement, but Magic Mountain said that it will announce future plans for the park at a later date.
