Me and Doomega's on ride photo on the Colossus front row.

As you can see who needs The Smiler to get you corrected when you have Colossus on the front row.

Looking good! Would be better if they got a camera installed on the rolls so the front of train picture is unique to you.

I also think that would be a nice touch to the on ride photo, but you never know this could easily happen in the next closed season. - If it happens I will have to buy the on ride photo again from the front row :)

You and Doomega look like you're having a really good time. Loving your face in this photo, Simba. Though I reckon it had more to do with the long awaited Slush Puppy after the ride. ;)

Wait a minute NightCoaster, how did you know I had a slush after I rode Colossus?

If you like good views of the track in front of you the front is the row on the coaster to see them. depending on if you have a fear of heights.

Yeah the front row offers some amazing views of the track and also some brilliant views of the lakes that surround TP, and the M3.
And the queue line as well offers some great views of Colossus too.

Colossus was stupidly on one train operation, when the park was extremely busy today. Me and Doomega didn't get an opportunity to ride it today, because of the ridiculous long queue. But I did manage to take this picture of Colossus.

That's a really good picture of Colossus!
I can't believe they would be running it on just one train after the closed season.
Take your spin on the Dragon's Fury or face his fiery breath!
