Lots of the flat rides from the park have appeared on private showmans advertising groups on Facebook. So it looks as though Merlin is having one of its flat ride culls in the near future.

Oh and we’re due to find out what’s happening to Colossos within the next week, so that’ll be fun seeing them explain how they let an easy to maintain wooden coaster get so bad they’ll probably need to either RMC it, completely rebuild it or demolish it.

Colossos will reopen in 2019!

Official announcement from the park (German only):
https://www.facebook.com/HeideParkResor ... 872106629/

To summarise: Ride will return in 2019 with some new additions and tweaks (to be revealed over the course of 2018), but it's not going to be a hybrid even though they thought about it.

A pleasant surprise!

Hopefully they take better care of it this time.

I am so incredibly relieved by this! I ended up missing the Colossos credit during a 2016 Halloween visit - I enjoyed my time there, but it was definitely a dampener on the experience. Honestly, when I heard it was remaining shut in 2017 and 2018 I was pretty worried. Luckily, Merlin seem to have decided to not be terrible and keep this awesome ride!

Hooray, I'm relieved too as it's currently one of my favourite woodies :)
