As I'm sure many will have seen today, Heide Park have released three photos
of the 'giant' theming structure. Obviously they've been framed to show off the broken-track illusion, but it does look as though they've been able to achieve a good effect!
Here's is also the translated press release:
Colossos: A battle between wood and fire - The Heide Park Resort reveals the secret to the fight of the giants
Last year, Heide Park Resort published the new logo of Europe's highest and fastest wooden coaster Colossos. Even the elements and colors of the logo as well as the title "Battle of the Giants" promised in advance a new thematization around an energetic play of contrasts between fire and wood. Now the Heide Park Resort reveals the secret to the opponent of Colossos - a second giant in the form of a dark, powerful creature.
For three years Colossos rested until now a gigantic fight begins. A dark power with shining eyes and blazing flames made its way in advance - deep under the earth and threatens to destroy the icon. Lurking waiting for the giant on the last few meters of the 1.5-kilometer route to brave roller coaster fans. Already on the terrace in front of the attraction he impresses park visitors with his imposing appearance.
Already on the portal of the iconic attraction, daring Colossos drivers are greeted by the new story. The logo emblazoned above the entrance, the matching soundtrack tunes in to the fight of the giants. 25 meters high and just as long protrudes the gigantic structure, apparently straight out of the ground, with shining eyes and blazing flame effects, on Colossus. Lurking waiting for the giant on the last few meters of the approximately 1.5-kilometer track and challenges all roller coaster fans to a grand finale. Already on the terrace in front of the attraction he impresses park visitors with his imposing appearance.
In addition to the creation of this highlight with "bones" made of steel and a 1900 square meter artificial rock surface, which was designed by the Portuguese company Universal Rocks by hand, were on the popular wooden roller coaster after the construction of the complete rails on a length of about 3 kilometers exchanged. The station and the shop were thematized according to the story and complete the picture. Before the opening in the spring, there is still a lot to do: In addition to the remaining work on the railway and the design of the landscape must be put on the last screws and various test runs are carried out before the TÜV Süd for final acceptance and commissioning of Holzgiganten. Then it finally says: Colossus: Battle of the Giants - The fight begins.
