Speaking to El Toro, I often see sections of track replaced even though they were never really rough. This year, I saw entire sections of the twister section replaced. Not sure if Heide was as vigilant there.

Rode Colossos last week. It's (almost) as smooth as butter. The new theming looks good too and looking at the expressions of the guests adds some value to the ride as well.

I had not ridden before it's re-track but found the airtime to be plentiful (people have been saying it has gotten a lot weaker). Sustained ejector on every hill in the front, and ejector and some floater in the back (those last bunny hops are a lot better in the front). There are trims on the first two hills but you don't really notice them. All in all, the ride is (still) amazing, not my favorite woodie, but still pretty high up there.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

We are going to Heide Park this wednesday. Any idea about how busy the park could be? Is it worth getting express buttler? From what I remember, if the que is not long enough, you can´t even use it? Just wondering if it´s worth getting it, since park might be a bit more busy during week days too, since it´s Halloween?

Check if it's available online before you visit. I bought mine in advance.

It basically got me right onto every ride so I thought it was worth every penny. I was there on a cold and miserable summer day and the park was still busy since that doesn't deter Europeans like us Americans.
