I did have a similar thought, although the Rumba Rapids page now has a line saying it "will return in 2019".

It could be its being rethemed/rebranded with the addition of more theming and the change in boats is also making me think it will all be implemented as a whole thing

Didn’t Thorpe say at some TTSP event they planned on taking a year off to improve rides like Rumba?

Well, last year they gave a certain family coaster new lighting and music, sooooooo...

I'm afraid that doesn't mean anything in terms of developments at Thorpe. It is simply an advert for The Purge TV series which is on Amazon Prime (other streaming services are available). When I was at The Resort on Friday morning that advert was playing in a cycle with adverts for the new Johnny English film, Firebox.com and Tesco.

I do believe we will see something happen to Collossus. It could be that we don't see anything new next year, instead, investment banked till 2020 with two new attractions for that year, one being a retheme and one being the new coaster! Who knows?

I do hope Colossus stays! All it needs is new trains and a repaint :(

The air gates are ridiculously over sensitive, which causes them to trigger an e-stop at the slightest touch when closing. Otherwise, yep the station is fine! :)
