Colossos is very different from a traditional wooden roller coaster because it is prefabricated. Instead of trackers cutting, shaping, and laying down the track by hand, the track is laser cut in a factory, achieving a higher degree of precision than could ever be done by hand. It is also made so that it snaps together like Lego pieces. The track also is made of more layers of wood that are tightly bonded together instead of being traditionally nailed together by hand. This has three major benefits, two for the park and the other for the riders.
On July 27, 2016, the ride closed for unknown reasons and has been standing but not operating ever since. Heide Park originally stated that they were aiming for the ride to reopen in 2017, however the ride was later announced as closed for the entirety of the 2017 season when Heide Park posted a picture of a themed fence covering the ride's entrance on Facebook.
