Colossus

Recommended Posts

I know this sounds like a strange question, but I heard that the please stand clear announcement (the usual 2006 one) was not playing. I was just wondering weither anyone who has been to THORPE PARK recently if they have heard it?!Thanks!

It's been off since the start of March, don't know whats happened to it and its quite likely it wasn't intentionally removed.

Does anyone know anybody who works at THORPE PARK, especially Colossus that could report this as I miss it! :blink:

The truth is, they really don't care. It's just an announcement and it's not an important aspect. It's really fanboy-ish - my mates just knowing that I know so much about theme parks and rides is shocking enough.

I haven't heard that this year so far. Thank god they ditched the new "Tony Blair" announcement that was short-lived.

I think the roughness depends on where you sit, I have found that sitting at the front of the car (not the train but the front of the train also works), the roughest bit is the Combra Roll IMO.

I want it back too but as Theme Park Bloke said it is sure to come back. I didnt like the 2007 announcement.

Went On This for the first time on the 29th march,qued for about half an hour and sat in the 2nd row of the 3rd car,I didn't find it to rough but my shoulders ached a bit from the rolls.Great Ride Though!And Yay! the waterfall thing in the cobra roll pit is fixeddd!

I just find Colossus to be a ride that if the queue is short I will ride it but if it has a long queue I won't queue it because I am at that hight I have a headache when I come off it. I love the ride and loops though just not the head banging!

I like Colossus but I'm not getting as bigger thrill out of it as I used to, but saying that after queueing an hour and a half for it boy does it make it feel like such a good ride :(

I don't find it bumpy at all, wherever I sit. The only problem I have with it is that it seems very unreliable. A few weeks ago I queued about 1 hour 45 mins for it. I was next in line with my mate to go on then it broke down for 30-45 mins ;) They didn't even give us exit passes, just made us wait there for what seemed like FOREVER; probably becuase my mate was German so we didn't even talk - it was quite awkard (sp?) :(
