This ride is awesome, every time I go on it I get very dizzy.

this ride is good, but not worth over 60 minutes que if rides like the swarm are only 30. soo tbh its overall ok as there are far better rides its just to bumpy, it needs to be refurbished and repainted to be less bumpy..

Having ridden it several times this year, after the winter service it is smoother and faster - definitely.

Easily the best ride in the park. Nearly 100ft lift hill, 10 inversions, 45 mph. The stats speak for themsleves. This ride is spectacular and must not be missed. Only one word describes it: MAD!! 10/10

Colossus first ever 10 inversion coaster speaks for itself. It was built by Intamin and is wicked from start to finish although it hurts like hell and gives me a dead leg every time i ride it is well worth the ride.

I agreee that colossus was thrilling and exciting but i think that some of the que times are rather extravagent.. 90 minuites for a 90 second ride. Although saying that i was desperate to give colossus a try because its absoluty fantastic! NOTE: you will regret it if you do not ride!!

Colossus, is such a fantastic ride. As i entered the queue under in the station, i saw the colossus train with its restraints up, like a feirce monster waiting to be released. The air gates swung open quickly, i was on. The restraints went down and the lrage circular glowing green light was flashing......the attendant pushed the button and we was off. You get a great view of the park, slammer, samurai. I was at the top, and dropping..fast. i did the first loop and loved it, towards the end of the ride the rollercoaster does corkscrews, phthon rolls and 5 large twists that get the adrenalin pumping big time!!! We did the large twist and we landed right in the brakes, as i hr=eard the music from the station, sitting there at the brakes doing nothing, was worrying. As soon as the restrains released i left the car/train and ran around to the entrance to rejoin the same spot, to where i first saw the colossus train. What a fabulous ride!! YOU DO NOT GET MANY LIKE THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 100 / 100.

Colossus is one of the best rides ever! When you do the first loop you feel weightless and like it's going on forever! 10/10

I got to the park before it opened to avoid queues and when it opened me and my mate went straight to Colossus. Walking around the queue line and seeing all the different parts of the ride really excited me and as i entered the dark loading station and saw the train sitting there, heard the intense music i started to get nervous. before i had just been excite but now i knew i was but minutes from taking my seat on the worlds first ten looping rollercoaster. the tension increased until i took my seat right at the front. as i pulled down my harness i just relaxed and realised i was looking forward to it again. it pulled out of the station and on to the lift clicking up to the top. i was suprised at the speed of the lift. i braced myself and the speed shocked me. before i knew it i was rocketing around the first half of the cobra roll. the loop and airtime hill had been a blur of blue. i looked at my friend and yelled. THIS IS WICKED! before plunging under the gift shop again and screaming my head of. the camera clicked as i left the second corkscrew and then round the corner and i was tumbling out of my seat in the inlines. i couldnt stop laughing because it was just sooooo fun. what made it even funnier was the little girl in the seat behind us screaming, im gonna die, mummy make it stop. as the ride came to an end and pulled onto the break run she started laughing and so did i. i just wanted to go again.

Opening day 2006: The tension was building, until i sat in my seat. 3,2,1,GO GO GO!!! And i was oof racing down the launch trach building speen 40, 60, 80 mph all in 2.3 seconds. After shooting up 205ft I took a breather and took a veiw of the park how amazing it was!! Before plumeting back to the ground and over the stomach churning air time hill before hitting the brakes. Well done Thorpe 11/10!!

Colossus is a extemely thrilloing hit at Thorpe park. Its twists and turns , turn you in to trance of a nostalgic dream. Its speed is immense as gravity pulls you down and the air is hitting you in the face.This ride rocks!!!!!!!!!!!

I love Colossus. I feel that the theming of Colossus and its surrounding area is very good and the queue line weaves you around the ride which adds to the excitement. I feel the ride itself is brilliant. Ten inversions are fantastic and the five inversions at the end of the ride are just brilliant. You really feel that you are coming out of your seat and that the harness will not be enough to keep you in. ten out of ten. love it.
