Originally known as Project Odyssey, revisit the construction of the Intamin 10-inversion rollercoaster, Colossus, which opened in 2002 as Thorpe Park’s first major coaster.

1st November 2000

John Wardley’s Rollercoaster Tycoon recreation of what Colossus would look like, and views across the construction site where land clearing had been completed, along with the installation of the first piles and foundations.

4th December 2000

Further piles were being driven into the ground for the cobra roll trench. A model was installed at the edge of the construction site, providing guests with an insight in to how the finished attraction would look.

7th January 2001

Work on the foundations and footers had started, with a retaining wall built between the construction site and X:\ No Way Out, to allow space for the maintenance building to be constructed.
