We ride the reopened Colossos

The first time we visited Heide Park, Colossos was standing but not operating. When we heard the ride was back open again, we found a way to return this park to experience what has been revered by many as one of the world's best wooden coasters.

We were not disappointed. Colossus is the park's best rollercoaster and one of the standouts in Germany. Note the ride is pretty heavily trimmed though which takes away some of the intensity this ride may have once had, but replaces it with extra smoothness and reridability.

Follow along during this update as we show you Colossos as well as the rest of Heide Park.

It is a rainy day so fortunately the crowds were fairly low.

During our first visit, we stated at the park's hotel so we missed out on the official entrance. Here it is!

The ride is located in the back corner of the park so we had a bit of a walk ahead of us.
