As part of a special promotion, Tussauds will plug the news rides at their parks with breakfast cereal maker Kellogs.
For the first time ever in the UK the familar cereal bowl has been temporarily shelved in favour of artwork of the three new coasters, including the first look at Colossus' new "open- plan" trains.
Show me the cereal boxes!

I agree. Those are some funky looking restraints on Colossus.

It appears as though it connects to the lab bar. I think it's a bit too wide near the neck, but I like how it removes the earbox.

absolutely LOVE the look of Vampire...could this spell the re-birth of the "suspended" coasters? With this much competition, don't look for Six Flags over UK anytime soon, LOL.

I like the restraints on Colossus. It looks comfortable. Certainly better than the suffocation of Arrow and B&M. I'm curious about the new Vampire cars. Those cars would be interesting on the Iron Dragon at Cedar Point...flying over the lagoon.

The artists impressions for the Intamin open trains on Colossus are not acurate. The seats are much more like a B&M sit down seat with a big seat post extending up behind the head and standard OTSR's. The trains had not been built at the time the drawing was commissioned, and thus the artist designed it based on a description ad pictures/drawings of the hyper trains.
Basically, what they have done is taken a hyper train, removed the seats and bolted on standard OTSR seats in their place. The trains have now arrived at Thorpe Park but pics are not yet available.
