Colossus closes this weekend and below you'll find the final weekend schedule whether you are visiting for the day or have a Six Flags Season Pass.
As we recommended in our Colossus Tribute the other day, if you have plans to ride Colossus this weekend we suggest getting to the park early. We anticipate it having large lines all weekend.
Saturday August 16
August 16 is National Roller Coaster Day, and with 19 thrilling coasters, we have lots of ways for you to celebrate. You can experience the extreme on X2, fly at the speed of fear on Tatsu, or brave the largest looping coaster, Full Throttle. This will also be the last day to ride our legendary wooden coaster, Colossus. Don't miss your chance to be one of the final riders on the King of Wooden Coasters.
Everybody who rides Colossus on August 16 will get a special Colossus Commemorative Button!!!
Sunday August 17
Flash your 2014 Season Pass to be the last to ride Colossus with an exclusive ride time on Sunday, August 17. The king of wooden coasters ends its 36-year reign to the general public on August 16, but as a Pass Holder, you'll get one extra time to ride! Upon opening in 1978, Colossus was the tallest and fastest wooden coaster in the world, and the first to feature two drops over 100 feet tall. It takes up over ten acres of land, with over 4,325 feet of drops and curves. Stay tuned for future announcements.
FYI, Colossus may be closing early for an after-hours Employee event as they will be the last to ride Colossus, as it should be.
We will be at the park next Thursday, August 21 for the "Black Carpet" event for Fright Fest 2014. Season Passholders are invited as well, see the info below. We hope to see you there!!
As a Season Pass Holder, you’ll get exclusive access and information before anyone else. Join us on August 21 at 6 p.m. for a special preview of Fright Fest, presented by SNICKERS®. In the Magic Moments Theater, we’ll announce our 2014 lineup of haunted attractions, scare zones, shows, and family daytime thrills. Plus, enjoy an exclusive Q&A session with key set designers and make-up artists to see how the event is created. Seating limited to first 800 people.
