Probably some new, cheap horror theming to give Merlin something to market about new Colossos (“NEW RIDE EXPERIENCE!”)
1. Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Six Flags Over Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix

Out of 139 creds

So a couple of weeks ago, Heide Park finally confirmed that Colossos: Kampf der Giganten as the new name for Colossos when it reopens in 2019. The park annouced it via a night-time projection show over the scaffolding of the new themed structure. It can be viewed here:



The park also revealed the new backstory for Colossos which is:

"A dark power has been sleeping under Colossos for 3 years, but now Colossos will no longer be dormant, so the dark power is fighting back and trying to destroy it."


Here's also themed structure and the rest of the layout, in the daytime, as it currently looks:

I literally made the same joke when I saw this picture earlier today in a whatsapp group :D
Let's see if it will send out fire to "show it's dark force against Colossos"
A downgraded version of Wickermans head?
It already has an downgraded Wickerman logo so why not

I am kinda sad that I was right though
