I see what you are saying, but you could still have very different ride experiences on those similar layouts based on choices of where to put inversions, overbanks, bunny hills, etc. For example, consider the bunny hill after the second turnaround (where the block brake was installed years ago), the right side could install a zero-g-roll at the point and the left side could be an airtime hill. On the second turnaround, the left side could do a barrel roll and right side a severe overbank -- basically at each critical point in the ride layout, each side could be doing something very different.
but I agree that the best option would be to the extend the hill to 200+ feet and have one massive layout that runs most of the entire course. In fact, nothing says that you even have to use the entire Colossus layout for both sides of the track - you could have one massive drop, run the course through one entire side and then just use part of the second side course to return back to the station without completing the whole second circuit.
Lots of cool possibilities - i am intrigued to see what they end up doing.
