It looks amazing.  I wish there was even a slight chance I might get to ride it.

That's pretty cool watching it go through all those barrel rolls.  I'd like to ride that coaster just to see what it's like to go through 5 consecutive barrel rolls

That thing looks so slow! It takes those barrel rolls at like 10 mph. per hour!

Thats the way it is supposed to be. But that is pretty slow.

Actually SWIMDEJ, there are only 4 consecutive barrel rolls then a turn into the fifth.

It doesn't look any slower than any other 100ft steel coaster. Ever seen X-Flight/ Stealth lumbering through it's final corkscrews?

Have you ever considered that maybe it's not the park that's the problem, but YOU?

You also have to remember that this was taken on the first day of testing.  It's not even started to break in, also...it almost looks like an enpty train.  No water dummies, let alone a train full of people!

Looks like a very smooth, disorienting ride.  Nice.

Whether people like it or not, the inlines will be taken at quite a slow speed. Basiclly Its much better that way anyway, If you experienced Those Inlines at a higher speed, You would feel most uncomforable, and you would have very bad motion sickness, and people would be puking up everywhere.
The Inlines are taken at a perfect speed as it is right now, I was lucky to witness the first people to take a ride on Colossus(2 Intamin Engineers) and they gave the ride a big thumbs up, they said the ride was very smooth with no headbanging, they also took 5 non stop laps, and they didnt have a problem with the inlines in terms of speed not headbanging, they seemed really happy with everything.

During the last week,I can also say that Colossus has undergone more testing with the Intamin Engineers riding it again(GRRRRRRR) and this time, the train has been going through the track a lot faster(Drop to Brakes in 50 secs apparently) Colossus will definatly be one of the suprise hit coasters this year, and I cant wait to ride it.

I am also happy to see people appreciate this coaster more, Nearly all last year, People kept attacking the coaster because they thought it would be boring with the 5 inlines etc and its nothing orginial, I was the one who kept saying Just Give the coaster a chance and ride it before you judge it, Well from all the testing I have seen, I can guarantee we are definatly in for One great Ride here and we certaintly wont be disapointed. Roll on March 22nd :)

Is there a trim before the inlines to control the train's speed through them?

It looks to me to be pretty slow throughout.

I've never had the opportunity to ride a coaster with a heartline.  Looks as if it would be an interesting feeling.

Viper manuevers the first heart line twist at a low speed....you get that prolonged hanging sensation which is kewl.  That ride looks real smooth though.....like most Intamins
