New for 2015, an Iron Horse steel re-track of the park's iconic Colossus wooden coaster, which closed in August 2014.

Here are the specs on Twisted Colossus:

  • Two lift hills
  • An 80-degree, 128-foot drop
  • Two inversions: a Zero-G Roll where track twists 360 degrees, and a "Top Gun Stall," where the train slows while upside down
  • The western hemisphere’s first "High Five" – where two trains pass through an overbanked turn facing each other with the illusion that riders can reach out and "hive five" each other. (It's an illusion. Don't try it. Plus, you're heading in the same direction and not facing each other, as in a normal high five.)
  • 18 airtime hills
  • Four minutes of ride time on nearly 5,000 feet of track, making this the longest hybrid coaster in the world
