    Inversions Fun Hangtime Rattle Capacity Harness

    I really wasn't expecting much from Colossus, it's reputation being so poor, however I have to say I enjoyed it. It has many faults - the restraints are poor, the trains are cramped, and it's definitely not very smooth, and that's before we get to throughputs - but it has a personality to it, it's interesting. I like the layout, it's not the best but it has some strong moments such as the cobra roll and the 4 heartlines. It's also pretty intense through the corkscrews and dropping down from the loop. I even got some airtime on the long hill. Definitely not the best ride going but IMO it doesn't deserve quite so much stick as it gets, it's still a fun ride that has plenty going for it

    Intensity Discomfort Tear it down! Layout

    Colossus at Thorpe Park. What a fucking mess. walking up to the ride, you get to see the literal shit covered track, manky and gross. all the ground around the ride is covered in litter and just dirt. You enter the hour plus queue because it has god awful capacity. you walk through the overgrown queue, passing by overfilled bins, more litter, but some decent shots of the coaster around you. you walk under a bridge into a cattlepen, no views of the ride, only cattlepen of people stupid enough to wait over an hour. you walk back under a manky bridge, and go pass a closed shop, and a prime view of black lift hill gunk. then you either get front row or every other row. Wait an extra 30 minutes on your wait already 30 min more than the advertised wait - but have a slightly less painful experience, or go in every other row and get assigned to the second row of a train because of course life hates you. You climb into a super cramped train, where anyone above the height of 5ft 2 will will have to awkwardly part their legs so you don't dislocate your knees on the row infront of you. Then pull down the stupidly heavy, bulky restraints, which you and the ride op need to pull down together because they're so heavy. So 5 minutes later you dispatch up the stupidly sluggish lift. you turn, getting a view of the infinitely better coaster (saw) right next to you, and it'll tease you with the fact Loggers leap is still standing. you go down the stupidly shallow drop, getting 1g of force in the back. Then you get to the bottom of the drop, and despite the decent force you feel, the could literally feels like it's going to fall apart like in a crappy cartoon. Then you go over a hill, with no airtime to speak of, and even if there was, the positives on the loop smashed to massive restraint so far down it's destroying your thighs. You enter the Cobra Roll, as your head gets smashed around all the way though the element until the jank exit. Then you enter the best part of the ride, the first corkscrew, you do get whipped through the element, which is rather fun if you brace yourself on you bulky restraint, but then there's the second one which is stupidly brutally rough. Then you crawl through a forgiving break in the pain, into the worst element(s) on any coaster I've ever experienced. The first Roll smashes your head to the side, and presses it the you head to the restraint like a vice, while your thighs are being brutalised with super sustained hangtime. the you fall back into your seat, just to have another super painful roll, then another, then another. Each worse than the last and. the you enter a brief moment of dread as the most sustained roll happens, smashing your head in the opposite direction. Then you crawl into the brakes, where you will have to wait for a stupidly long time due to the dreadful operations. Then you leave to go do something better.

    Headbanging Capacity Discomfort

    I queued two hours for this ride, and boy what a mistake that was. Quite simply the worst rollercoaster I have ever rode, and if all coasters where like this I would have no interest in them whatsoever. The restraints are awful, I’m a 6ft guy and my neck was banged to pieces throughout the ride. If I was a few inches shorter in height, I can’t imagine the headbanging I would have experienced. I actually felt sick getting off this ride, as my neck and base of head had taken a real pounding. The ride itself is rough, and by the time I experienced the 4th?! Heartline role I just wanted the ride to end.

    Location Fun Intensity Layout

    Would you say this is a terrain coaster as it goes over and under the paths several times and follows the way of the ground a bit? Probably. Probably not. There is no correct answer. You could say it's a "halfway terrain coaster" where it has the idea but isn't quite there yet. Anyway on to the ride. People like to say this is a horribly rough coaster but I found my most recent ride to be alright despite my previous ride a week prior bashing my head in and giving me an awful reintroduction to coasters after being taken away from them for half a year. It was a decent ride where by far the best part is the vertical loop and airtime hill after. After the cobra roll the layout does go downhill considerably but if there's an unclaimed world record in the form of an inversion count, then if you get the chance you should take it. But that doesn't take away from the fact that the ride is very enjoyable, and despite being repetitive, it's still a good ride. After all, it was my first coaster with a 1.4m height restriction so it holds a special place in my heart.

    Too cramped trains ruin this ride for most people. Repetitive layout towards the end but still a solid ride let down by other factors

    This ride gets too much hate in my opinion. It’s a very fun ride with some great inversions. It would be even better if they replaced the OTSRs with lap bars. It’s not that rough and it is my 4th favourite coaster at the park. I actually had some really bad rides in 2018 but it was running much better and smoother in 2019.

    Hangtime Headbanging Capacity Harness

    Colossus is in serious need of a full re track and new trains. It has somehow gone worse from last year. The restraints are horrific, the trains are old and need to be gone and the capacity is awful! We had to wait ages in the fast track queue!!!

    Theming Intensity Harness Inversions Pointless

    Colossus is well themed and should not be repainted. The Lost City shouldn't look like a B&Q advert it looks great and 'lost' how it is. Very fun and intense ride and not too headbangy. New restraints would do this ride wonders and trains as even people who aren't remotely fat barely fit. The odd rows are much smoother but they are very uncomfortable to sit in if your above 6ft or so. The quad heartline roll is a very cheap way of making it 10 inversions although I guess at the time it was their first coaster so sort of acceptable. The final heartline is really fun but it would be so much better if it had 9 proper inversions and then this heartline.

    This year Colossus has been running great compare to recent seasons. There is little to no headbanging and its generally just running a lot smoother than it has in the past. The restraints aren't very comfortable or spacious especially in the even numbered rows so try to avoid those and opt for the oddly numbered rows. As for experience you exit the station and start climbing the 95ft tall lift hill which spreads up once you pass halfway. After exiting the lift you immediately turn to the left and go into the main drop which gives a few seconds of free fall and into a vertical loop, it's nothing special or too intense, then you go through a tunnel into a bunny hop delivering some floater and into a cobra roll which my cause some headbanging if you sit with your head pressed back. Once you exit the cobra roll you go into two corkscrews, these can be fairly whippy and after the second one they take your picture. Then you turn round and into 4 back to back heartline rolls delivering a lot of hangtime and then another turn which will lead you into one more heartline roll before you hit the breaks. All round it's a rather good coaster and enjoyable.

    Airtimes Theming Layout Capacity Harness Discomfort

    With different trains this would be a 4* ride, but the current bulky restraints and terrible Intamin trains really spoil the ride. The layout's good and the way you can walk through the middle of the ride area makes it an immersive experience, but it's rough to ride and the corkscrews in particular can have some violent headbanging. The offload platform in the station, especially where the baggage hold is, is too narrow and causes delays in loading and dispatch, plus on off-peak days the park commonly run this coaster with a single train, leading to longer queues than necessary. If you sit in the back row of a car, getting in and out involves significant amounts of contortion - good luck if you're over 6ft tall!

    It isn't an awful ride. It has a weird layout, with 5 heartline rolls at the end - being turned over 4 times in a row is hilarious. The inversions are decent. The ride just feels a bit slow, the trains aren't comfortable and it is pretty rough. Overall, an OK ride that hasn't aged well.

    Good layout in a half interesting setting if it's not overran with rubbish and graffitti. Frequent power cuts in the park mean frequent downtime, and the ride has poor capacity at the best of times. Routinely fitted with 50-pence piece shaped wheels, and the restraints aren't far short of requiring a yoga instructor to get in an out. Can't help but think it was intended to have TTD-style lap bars; but insurers got nervous after some unfortunate events elsewhere.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Colossus after hearing people complain about it. The 2 whippy corkscrews are great fun, and it's the best shaped cobra roll I've ridden. I don't mind that it makes it to 10 inversions with the gimmicky rolls, they're quite funny. I didn't find it particularly rough or rattly, but the restraints are uncomfortable.
