California Roller Coaster Catches Fire

In what appears to be a construction related fire, a roller coaster in a Six Flags Theme park caught fire today and was captured by KTLA video.




The Six Flags park closed the iconic wooden coaster last month, to create the “Magic Mountain Colossus” roller coaster with an Iron Horse steel track atop the wooden frame.

The park was scheduled to be closed today, so operations were not affected by the fire. Some of the wooden structure at the top of one hill burned, though the vast majority of the ride’s frame appears to remain intact.

Los Angeles County fire units responded and contained the fire at Magic Mountain today. There were no injuries reported. No word yet on how today’s incident will affect the construction timeline for Twisted Colossus.

As a result, a massive hole was left in the top of the lift hill of the 36-year-old wooden coaster.

Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Scott Miller was quoted saying, “”It’s not something you see every day”
