Holding more rides than any other area in the park, the mythical ruins of Lost City contain some of the finest flat rides around, and Colossus, the world’s first ten inversion roller coaster.
With a world record breaking 10 inversions, the installation of Colossus in 2002 marked Thorpe Park’s intention to become a theme park for thrill seekers. Confined within a compact 850m layout, riders experience a 98ft drop into a vertical loop, airtime hill, cobra roll, double corkscrew, four consecutive clockwise heartline rolls and a final anticlockwise heartline roll before arriving into the final brake run. Be sure to try the test seat before queuing, as the restraints can be unforgiving. The coaster is best experienced in the front row which provides a smoother, even more disorienting ride.
