I'm going to Hamburg for a week in about a month around mid to late may, can anyone testify as to how busy the park might be around 14-21 of May? I'd like to go (hoping Colossos could just maybe open by then) the park seems to be open an hour longer on the weekend in that period but if it's significantly busier than the weekdays then there's no benefit.

^ If I where you I would go to Hansa Park instead as it is about the same distance away from Hamburg and you will have a much better day there ;) Regardless of where you go weekdays will be best as weekends are usually significantly busier.

I mean ideally I'll be going to both :) Haven't done either, just have no idea how busy either of them are really around this time of year, never been to Germany before.

Sounds good :) I don’t think it will be very busy during that time so you should be fine :)

They actually added an additional trim and turned them all up, unfortunately. Compare the first POV's from 8 years ago to the new testing footage where the train crawls into that newly-themed airtime hill with no airtime potential.

At least she lives though.

I don't think there was a lot of pre-announcement, it feels like it came out of nowhere because checking the website for a while it seemed there never was a date (I think the date came out on the 17th so the day before yesterday only) but anyway, Colossos opened today!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Check out this video ad for Colossos. It would appear that they've given it a new set of trains!

True, the trains are new, but I didn't read anything about the manufacturer yet. Has anyone?

I think that they're Intamin, they look just like the ones on El Toro and T Express.
