It will start soon! From the middle of April, the first rail work will begin. The old Kerto wooden rails are being removed along the entire track (1.5 km). We will keep you up to date with photos and video. Stay tuned!

Good to hear that work will finally begin on fixing it. An Intamin Pre-Fab shouldn't go to waste.

^ Even if it's not opening till the 2019 season, it is good to see that they are actually making an effort to get it back up and running!

Agreed. It would have been a shame to lose an Intamin pre-fab.

I was there shortly before they closed it. Will try to look after some pictures to see if the lift hill was that bad back in 2016. I think it wasn't, but the ride itself was very rough.

Renovation of spectacular wooden roller coaster Colossos has started

210618af.jpg

The German theme park Heide Park has started with the renovation of the giant wooden coaster Colossos. The rollercoaster has been SBNO for two years. It will cost 12 million euros to get the 50 meter tall attraction operational again.

At this moment, the old track is being dismantled. Heide Park works with two specialized companies, RCS and Fa Cordes, for this job. In April 2019, the spectacular renovation must be completed.

Colossos, built by the Swiss company Intamin, opened in 2001. The original ride was good for a top speed of 110 kilometers per hour. It is not yet clear whether the wooden roller coaster will go equally fast.
