Famous Hollywood Roller Coaster Closes


By KMVT News

Valencia, California ( CNN ) - What was once the world's fastest and tallest roller coaster is carrying its last riders this weekend.
People from across the nation came to Six Flags Magic Mountain in California to say goodbye Colossus.
And some aren't giving up hope that the wooden roller coaster can still be saved.
They believe it should be designated a landmark or engineering marvel.
One park goer referred to it as "It's emotional,” while another said they were, "Sad to see it go but maybe it's time for something new."

Donald Patti, the organizer of "Save Colossus" said, ”It's role in film, particularly when we're in the entertainment industry here in Southern California and in Hollywood. It's been in so many films, so many movies. It's almost like we're losing a Hollywood icon."

Season pass-holders will be able to ride colossus Sunday, but the last day for those without passes was Saturday
