Wow, Colossus looks fantastic. It sure did turn out to be a beautiful looking coaster.
Have you ever considered that maybe it's not the park that's the problem, but YOU?

You know, a lot of us complained about Colossus just being tons of corkscrews... But I will be the first to admit this coaster looks awesome. Am I not seeing things correctly, or are some of those corkscrews pretty close in shape to zero-g rolls? they are really flat.

The video of Colossus was very cool. Despite the fact that its layout is less interesting than a lot of B&M's, I still think it looks like an awesome ride. It's nice to get a look at the major coasters in Europe that we in the States don't get to see that much.

I went on colossus yesturday quite a few times! it was an amazing coaster! the 5 inlines are amazing especially the last one which brings your fingers within 2 feet of the ground! The theming is very well done and provides a very spacious and interesting area that is very upclose. The 4 headchopper effects are amazing especially after the bunny hop! Got my season ticket aswell and i'll be back v soon. Well done TP and can't wait for 2003 now.

Colossus has exceeded a lot of peoples expectations. Many prefer it to AIR, even though they are different ride concepts. Now we look forward to the 2003 Beemer - should be awesome with Volcano theming!

Why does Riddler's line move so slow?

I finally rode Air today as the first time I went to ride it, which was a couple of weeks back, it was closed all day unfortunatly. After a 2 hour queue in the hot easter break weather it was amazing, I had no idea what this coaster was going to be like and I totally unestimated it, it's breathtaking... look forward to Superman because these B&M flyers are nothing like I've ever rode in my life... or maybe it's just that John Wardley's brilliant at designing coasters? ;)
