The new track pieces for Colossus have been redelivered to Thorpe Park and have been fitted in place ready for testing to begin. The track was delivered and attempted to be fitted a few weeks ago but due to an unknown issue was returned to Taziker for final tweaks to be done.
A few weeks later the track has finally been installed and ride testing will begin shortly. EDIT - the ride has been testing just hours after took these photos.
It's funny to think these new sections of the track are connected up to old original bits of Colossus track originally installed in late 2001 to open to guests in 2002.
These new sections of the track are painted blue and when complete the whole track will be this colour. The only sections we think will remain unpainted will be the lift hill and station as these sections don't receive much stress.
