Colossus was the first major roller coaster to be installed at Thorpe Park, and was once the joint-holder of the world record for the largest number of inversions on a coaster (ten). It shared this distinction with an exact clone, the Tenth Ring Roller Coaster, which is located at China’s Chimelong Paradise.

Housed in the Lost City area of Thorpe Park, Colossus packs a vertical loop, a cobra roll, two corkscrews and five heartline twists into its circuit. In order to achieve its record-breaking status, the heartline twists are packed into a single section at the end of the ride.

The ride’s queue line weaves in and out of the coaster’s circuit, enabling waiting riders to get a close-up view of it in action. Some basic theming elements, along with a distinctive theme tunes, are designed to evoke a long-lost Atlantean civilisation.
