I heavily agree, Collossus needs a heavy re-paint.

Me and Doomega have had some bad luck with Colossus this year, both times we have visited the park (23rd March and 4th April) it has been too cold for Colossus to operate, I so hope next week it will warm up so that we can actually ride Colossus for the first time this season, as it still a brilliant ride plus I want to ride it one more time before it loses it's inversion record to The Smiler.

The weather for tomorrow is looking quite good, with temperatures even reaching double figures according to the Met Office for Thorpe Park.
So lets hope that me and Doomega actually get this nice forcasted weather and that Colossus will be open tomorrow so we can ride it for the first time in the 2013 season!

I do hope you and Doomega have some luck tomorrow with the weather, I can't really believe how unlucky you have both been this season.

The weather was better than the last two visits to the park, so me and Simba finally got to go on Colossus for the first time this season. We ended up having four rides on it.

I admit, I was very surprised by how well Colossus was actually running today, it felt very smooth, and it was just incredible, I hope it continues to run this well throughout the entire season.

I also thought Colossus was working very well when I last visited the park on 6th April 2013.
