Last night a group of fans of both this site and The Coaster Guy met up for one last ride on Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
We had arranged with the park to have some of the buttons they gave out on the last "official" day on Saturday but once again, the park went above and beyond and made sure our group was on the last non-employee train of Colossus ... EVER.
Thanks again to the park and to everybody who came out to ride. We had a great time and hopefully we'll be able to do more meets in the very near future.
Below are some pictures of the rides last day in operation, mostly taken by CoasterMatt because, as you'll see below, he takes amazing pictures. Be sure to check out Matt's Flickr page for more great pictures.
Like some kind of omen, some crows were hanging out. Attempted Murder of Colossus perhaps? =)
After the park closed and the ride was open for a much-deserved employee party, we (Matt) were able to get some great night shots.
Some shots of our group from last night. We had an absolute blast. Thanks so much for coming out everybody!! (Pictures courtesy of The Coaster Guy)
We did notice some construction stuff on site, mainly some port-a-potties and what looks like a construction office. Guessing that work is going to begin very soon, it may have already begun for all we know.
This is obviously going to be the easiest way to access the site, wonder if the tram/bus road is going to be moved and how long Goliath and/or Scream will be shut down.
Just a couple of VERY quick notes elsewhere in the park. Magic Mountain recently won a USA Today Reader's poll and was voted the #1 Theme Park in the US. Congrats.
There is also something going on behind the Go Kart track (both it and Apocalypse were closed). Let the rumors of the "OMG Giga Coaster that's going to stretch the entire back of the park" commence. =)
We hope you enjoyed one last look at Colossus. We'll be back at the park for the big Fright Fest reveal on Thursday.

Thank you very much for organizing this, Gregg. I know everyone, myself included, had an absolute blast!

I really wanted to go hang with you guys. My daughter and I went on Friday for Honda early entrance, and I just could not get a "hall pass" to go again one more time over the weekend.
