    When will Colossus get 'cleaned up?'

    You guys got to be a bit more realistic. In hard economic times is Merlin really gonna wanna spend a load of money on repainting an attraction or are they going to be thinking they'll put that money towards a new attraction. A new attraction brings visitors / returning custom. Repainting won't have a fifth of the effect and it may need doing for cosmetic reasons but as an engineer myself if the track NEEDED to be repainted / cleaned for operational / serviceability reasons then then it would have.

    Thorpe had a medium sized ferris wheel before it was removed to build Rush. Highly doubt a second one will be brought in.

    Logger's Leap

    If you follow the rules like no standing up you will be fine. Obviously if you muck around and start standing up and getting out of your seat then theres a chance you might hurt yourself. Same for Rumba Rapids you could freely jump out if you wanted but if you follow instructions you wont. A bit of a silly post to be honest.Its not possible for the boat to fall back down as there are ratchets all the was up the hill which spring back when the boat passes through it so if the lift was to stop it would be completely safe. Thats what the clicking noise is when you travel up the lift. It's the same principal for Rollercoaster lift hills.EDIT: Paul and James beat me to it
