    Can you ride Colossus 'backwards' for 13 straight hours?

    Got this email from SFMM this morning in case anybody is interested.

    Dare to ride Colossus, backwards for 13 hours on Friday the 13th of October!

    This year, to celebrate Friday the 13th, the 13 days of Fright Fest 2006 and the 13th AnniverSCARY of Fright Fest, Six Flags Magic Mountain is holding a 13 hour coaster scare-a-thon on our signature Fright Fest coaster, Colossus BACKWARDS!

    Participants left after 13 hours will win a pair of 2007 Xtreme Season Passes and VIP access to SFMM Fright Fest.

    Call 661-255-5917.
    Space is limited.

    I rode that about 10 years ago - and it was pretty rough - 13 hours is a long time.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I've always wanted to do a roller coaster marathon.

    I'd much rather do this than eat a raw cockroach....

    Contests like this aren't unusual...but that doesn't seem like much of a prize for 13 hours of riding.

    I couldn't because I can't do backwards coasters. The backwards screws me up so much.

    I just called and asked for seats for Lisa and Myself...

    And I like the "Jason" offer...

    Anybody who can show ID that says there first name is "Jason" gets in free after 3 PM on Friday, October 13th...

    And as for the Marathon prizes, the prizes are worth over $400, not bad....

    Hmm - I dunno. 13 hours on that teeth-and-bone rattler seems like an awful long time to win a pair of season passes and the Fright Fest VIP access.
    She did it!

    I probably could, but I have to do the whole working thing....my job is a tad more important than passes.........

    I would so do this ... if:

    I wasn't flying home from Indianapolis that morning

    It wasn't Colossus. If this was Colossus of 10 years ago it would be an awesome event. But 2 or 3 rides on this ride is enough.
