That looks strangely like CG. Is that real? Those trains are flying!

The ride looks awesome but I still stand by my claim that those are the ugliest wody trains I've ever seen!

Ugly? Yes. But, I can imagine they must be VERY comfy with the MF style seating. :)

Exactly, P-body. From everyone I've talked to who rode Colossus the trains are very comfortable.

That is going to provide some serious airtime!

The trains are comfortable but small. Very little leg-space. And they're the spitting image of a refrigerator. :)

The ride looks really good though!

That looks like it provides Intense Maximum Air Time!! I do agree though, they are some Ugly trains!

The trains were pretty comfy on Colossos, but I agree, they weren't visually stricking, which can be said about most Intamin trains IMO.

This park is home to the very first Vekoma Invertigo also, which currently is being dismantled.

Those trains kinda look the photos in Popular Mechanics of cars being tested and the car company does not want the styling to be known yet.
Maybe on opening/media day the ugly blue boxs will be removed expossing the trains' real sexy and sleek styling underneath. ;)
Or not.

All I got was a bunch of code. Is this a Mac only problem?
