Today, Thorpe Park has shared an update on the progress of Collosus.
Morning you lot, little exclusive for you 😏
Today we have taken delivery of the shiny new Colossus track 😍 Here are a few FAQs you may ask:
🛤 The track has been manufactured by Taziker
🎨 The gray track you saw this weekend was the original track. This was re-installed temporarily so we were able to complete winter maintenance checks on the trains. To model the new track the original had to be sand-basted to remove the paint – so a grey primer was added whilst we tested.
🚧 This is the first section of the track to be installed as part of a large multi-year project. Naturally, the fresh track will stand out until we have completed the project.
🗓 We can’t confirm an opening date yet as the ride must undergo final testing with the new track in place.
