If you are a fun loving person and enjoy the adrenaline rush, you can certainly plan to visit the Colossus. The ride is one of the major attractions of the Thorpe Park and is 98 feet high and runs at a speed of 45 meters per hour. It is a groundbreaking rollercoaster ride that will make you scream with excitement while witnessing the sudden twists and turns. All the upside down moves of the ride will make you feel crazy and scared at the same time. But at the end of the day, the ride is simply superb. You must follow the safety precautions before enjoying the ride that is set by the park authority.

Colossus Reviews & Ratings
I love this ride and this was actually my first ride when I went to Thorpe Park for the first time! The best part I love is the drop and it always makes me go wow! Also people have been giving this ride low ratings because they experienced problems with their head. This is because people don’t follow to rules, they clearly mention to press your head back at drops and loops so you don’t get hurt by the force! Other than that this ride is an absolute must to go on. Overall 5 stars from me as it’s a great ride. (Ride needs some paint work and a little maintenance on the chains that take the ride up as they are a little slow.)
Ride restraints are ridiculously tight. Needs a car upgrade to be more accessible to all. I'm pretty sure every train as we went through the queue had someone on it who was unable to ride. Also operations need to be a lot better. It took forever to unload, load and send out.
I enjoyed this ride when it was first created in the park 17 years ago. Every time I’ve been to Thorpe Park it has been a must. It’s a great ride. If you pay attention to the safety advice and keep your head pressed back against the seat, you won’t experience any problems. I rode it as a child and as an adult and have never had any problems. Great ride, could do with some maintenance now though as it’s looking a little tired!
Great ride! One of the only rides I could get my friend to go on and she isn't the biggest fan of rides. The line is long but moves very quickly.
Would be such an amazing ride if they just fixed the restraints and cars!! So rickety and can really hurt your head but other than that the layout is brilliant, the theme is amazing and a genuinely good ride. (Ride area needs a bit of a repaint too!)
