Colossus & Sky Scream Roller Coaster

Colossus is a roller coaster at Thorpe Park in Surrey, England, and the park’s first major attraction. It was built by Swiss manufacturers Intamin and designed by Werner Stengel as an adaptation of Monte Makaya in Brazil.Tussauds designer John Wardley adapted the project to include an extra two inversions as well as reducing its height.Colossus was the world’s first roller coaster with ten inversions; an exact replica, called the Tenth Ring Roller Coaster, was later built at Chimelong Paradise in Guangzhou, China. It retained its title of having the most inversions on any other roller coaster in the world until The Smiler at Alton Towers took the record in 2013.

The roller coaster is located in the Lost City area, in the south-east of the park. The ride is formed of a vertical loop, a cobra roll, two corkscrews and five heartline rolls. The ride’s rough theme is the ruins of a recently unearthed Atlantean civilisation. The music for the ride and surrounding area was composed by Ian Habgood and is shared with the roller coaster Colossos in Heide Park, Germany. During planning and construction Colossus was known as Project Odyssey; both names allude to Ancient Greece, albeit in different ways. In 2009, the ride’s lift hill chain was replaced and station area was cleaned of rust.

I choose to talk about is Etosha National Park it’s located in the vast arid space of Northern Namibia lies one of Southern Africa’s best loved wildlife sanctuaries. Etosha National Park offers excellent game viewing in one of Africa’s most accessible venues. Zebra and springbok are scattered across the endless horizon, while the many waterholes attract endangered black rhinoceros, lion, elephant and large numbers of antelope.

Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, is encloses a huge, flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5 000km². The ‘Pan’ provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.
