Like many of the chain's other wooden coasters, Colossus won't be going away completely. Rocky Mountain Coasters has been called in to remodel the coaster. RMC is no stranger to Six Flags either, having redone Texas Giant and Rattler in Texas and are known for making some extreme changes to rides in order to push the limits of riders even further. Will the future name be "Iron Colossus"? I'm not sure but it's definitely possible.
We rode Colossus back in March as part of our California theme park trip and have to say that it's definitely in need of work. Only one side was running and despite offering the chance to ride "backwards" for a few weeks, it was in serious need of some love.

Either way, it'll be interesting to see what develops and hopefully Six Flags will actually maintain this one after it's done!
