Colossus


With the title of 'The Worlds First 10 Looping Coaster,' Colossus does exactly what it says on the tin! 10 fast-paced, heart pounding Inversions that leave you gasping for air throughout the whole ride.

Colossus promises to leave you with a great feeling of acomplishment and shock, and a need to find the nearest toilet!

It's an intense, stomach-churning coaster that is impossible not to enjoy as you fly above, under and even next to passing guests at immense speeds and in extreme positions.

From the point as you leave the chainlift to rolling 360 degrees 4 times in a row, within inches of passing guest's heads, Colossus never loses its momentum and high thrill factor!

The name of the construction project was "Project Odyssey", a reference to ancient Greece, to which the area is loosely themed.
