Quite a bit of track and supports on site now:
A somewhat hideous colour combo.
Up close the red looks quite tough in places, like primer. Makes me wonder why interlink didn't do it as part of the £20,000,000 project costs?
The structure of the station building is now up and the coaster has gone vertical:
Look like they are either going to paint it once it is up or leave it as it is.
The language in Flamingo Land's tweets sometimes reads as if it's been fed through a bad online translator.
Looks like an extremely wet construction site. Hope it doesn't delay pouring further concrete.
Interesting strategy that they haven't painted it yet.
Probably holding out for a Black Friday deal on Dulux at B&Q.
More like B&M bargains!
They were pouring footers last night, they've got the bottom of the lift in now too. Got a couple pictures, but they're mostly the same as what's already been posted
Do you all really think there will be any money leftover from the twenty million to cover a few tins of paint as well?
It’s not getting painted is it..... I mean there is clearly £20m worth of work going on here
That's a lot of Frau.....I mean work
At least it's not grey.
Don't understand the negativity here... it's a pretty good addition for the park, regardless of the colour it ends up!
Agreed! This should hopefully start to forge a new path of growth for Flamingo Land; it's probably the largest coaster they've built in at least 10 years! That's surely a positive, is it not?
I do joke about this ride but I will be going to visit for its opening- I think Colossus is a great layout let down by a rough ride and some of the worst cars and restraints I have experienced on a coaster. More leg room and lapbars could make this a great ride
The only thing worse than a Colonsucks clone would be a Baco clone.
It’s tongue in cheek humour really. I don’t think anyone doubts that it’s a good investment.
We went for a quick look on Monday and snapped a few pics. Seems they've got RCS in to do at least some of the construction as well! They had the first bit of lift track in, most of the station(?) up, and a lift support when we were there.
They were also doing something over near Lost Vertebrae River Ride
