Yes it's painful, at times it can be OK but on the whole it is painful. Though those who are like "omgzzz itz like da most fakin painful ****z eva" need to go for a ride on Great American Scream Machine.

I have never found Colossus 'rough', I have never banged my head whilst I'm on it, I just find it very 'rattly' and this makes for a horrible noise.

Yeah, like Martin, I don't really find it painful, I haven't ever banged my head on the restraints or anything, you can just feel it shaking a bit underneath you [imo]...so "Bit Shakey" for me...

I would never describe it as painful though, since, it doesn't hurt [me]...

The only painful thing abotu colossus for me was I kicked the car by accident which hurt my big toe :( but it was a "bit shakey"

It's not something I'd immediately compare to a blender, but it's far from being comfortable. Even near the front, you'll need to tense up entering the cobra roll.

It sertainly aspires to be a Vekoma. God alone knows why.

I's headache inducing. Bad trains. One of the trains isn't so bad.

The trains are terrible. There's not even enough leg room for a short arse like me. It doesn't feel rough on the whole body, it just bashes my ears badly...and I always brace myself!

Then again, cobra rolls and corkscrews are rough inversions generally imo.

The inline twists and verticle loop feel fine though.

Broken Bones for me and my dad. I cannot sit in the back because I have to big "shoes". My dad is too tall so he cannot go on it at all and I well struggle! Hurts but still like it.

Well, I think sometimes the people who have been on Colossus exaggerate a bit, because there are a lot rougher coasters out there, I'm sure. Considering Intamin is a good company, their worst coaster is probably as bad as Togo's best coaster.

So, my conclusion is that it's rough for Intamin standards, but not rough in terms of all coasters.

I sometimes get a cramp in my legs from the lack of leg room (especially at the back), but most of the time it's not that painful.

Definately. But it is one of the UK's roughest and as a NEW Intamim, it's a joke.

But everything in the UK is exagerated i've decided anyway.

Oh, I dunno so much. I've been on ROUGHER coasters, like Pinfaris, but not more PAINFUL coasters. The crushing, the pain, the roughness, ugh it kills me. Obviously, it effects people differently due to size, the way people ride etc.


In fact, the only other coaster I came off thinking "Ow, WTF was that DELUGE of pain?" was, yep, GWAZI!

If I sit in any seat in the front two cars then I find that it isn't, but go to the back and on the cobra roll it is so **** rough and I allways have my head as far out of the restarint as possible, but even that doesnt work.

Never felt a jot of pain on it. Didn't really notice any 'rattling' either, though I suspect that was because I was too busy going 'Wheee!' The trains aren't good, but they're ok once I get in. Lack of legroom doesn't bother me much, it's a coaster, not a sofa! Maybe I'm the perfect height for it (6"2' for the record), my sister got a bit of a head bashing on it and she's shorter than me. She didn't complain about it though - then again she's not an enthusiast and didn't moan and moan cos it's not as smooth as a B&M :p

It feels like broken bones, so I put that. It's the 2nd roughest I've ridden. Only with Corcscrew (AT) is death sure for me.
