Happy Monday and welcome to another Twisted Colossus update. Our updates are now old enough to vote, and I think this week they are voting Green side because, as you'll see, it's looking pretty amazing.
Not to take anyway from Blue side, but it's gotten most of the wow-factor attention up to this point. =)
We'll also take a look at Scream and around the park at a few random things.
Yep, still looks Colossal.
The Double Down on the Green side has been completed since our last update. It basically dives down below the blue track and heads into it's inversion.
That's gonna be fun
The Blue track headed towards some pretty nice airtime
The start of the twist
What looks to be the rest of the twist ready to go up
It was a very hot day, but they were still working. I'm guessing they were welding because they were using water as well. And well, we don't need another repeat incident. =)
One last look at Mr. Twist.
Next backstage tour we need to see if the park will let us go up on the tower of Tornado or even the racing slides, because that will be nice.
Signature Shot ... because we can
Ok, I lied about the last picture being our last look at Mr. Twist
A closer look at the Double Down and blue track diving.
On the backside, even more track is on site.
Moving on to Scream, it appears the repaint is done.
Not sure how well you can see it, but it appears the maintenance bay has been painted with the blue.
It did look like a couple of supports in this area weren't completely done, but that could have just been the reflection of the sun.
It appears the track up to the station is painted, but that seems to be the only station work that's been done so far.
As we reported on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages on Saturday, there is a new "Drink Free All Season" Sports Bottle for only $19.99. This is a GREAT deal, especially considering how much we go to the park.
We've also confirmed with some of our site friends (Texas Thrill Seekers, SFNE Online and Coaster ChitChat) that these were at other parks. So if you will be travelling it's an even better deal.
And yes, they do work for the Coke Freestyle machines in the park. Will be interesting to see how much we save this year.
The Flash Pass office got some new paint and a new name. It looks great.
Looks like there has been some activity at The Swashbuckler, but doesn't look like it's going to open anytime soon.
The new asphalt they added last month has been painted and looks nice.
Even if they'd do something like this to the bottom of Scream it would improve that parking lot immensely. Heck, I'll come out and volunteer to do it. I'm sure we could have a big Park Journey Scream Painting party. =)
Tidal Wave opened back up over the weekend
It was only running 1 boat, but if I had to guess, the park hadn't planned on opening the ride this weekend. But temperatures were in the 90's so I'm guessing they got it opened before they wanted to.
Moving outside, the park continues to update Handicapped facilities, such as wheelchair ramps at the ticket booths.
And new pavement at the bus load/unload stations.
With all the recent changes adding more handicapped spots and obvious work on this front we aren't sure if the park wasn't meeting some ADA requirements or they just felt they needed to update that aspect of the park. Either way, it's nice to see.
Alright everybody, that's going to wrap it up for this update. We hope you enjoyed a look at the park and hope you are getting excited for Twisted Colossus.
As of now we have NO idea when the ride will be opening, but as soon as we know, you will too.
Thanks for reading, have a great week everybody!!
