New attraction replacing Koggenfahrt in 2018

On to new adventures!
Use until November 5th the chance to shoot great souvenir photos of your kids in our Wichtelhausenbahn and enjoy the last rounds in the Koggenfahrt.
But do not worry: The Wichtelhausen Railway will not leave us, but shines in 2018 for you in new splendor. At the place of the Koggenfahrt a new, extraordinary adventure awaits you next year!

What you can look forward to in the coming season, we tell you in the new year. Be excited!

No word on Colossos, for those who are wondering.

The original information was probably inaccurate. Up until a few years ago RCDB also had Colossos' top speed listed as 120 km/h (~75 mph) but it was lowered to 110 km/h (~68 mph).

Wait...so was the park lying about the height this whole time? Also, does this mean El Toro has actually been the tallest operating wood coaster for the past several years? I always thought it was Colossos.

^Acoording to RCDB, the tallest wooden coaster is T Express, and the wooden coaster with the biggest drop (not counting Goliath) is El Toro. So yes, Colossos is no longer the record holder.

Update Colossos

Over the course of the season, you have been asking us questions about Colossos. Today we would like to share with you what has occupied us the last few months. A little patience is still needed. We await the decision on the future of Colossos until early January. As soon as the decision has been made, you will receive comprehensive information on January 11, 2018. Until then we will answer the most common questions in this video.

Note that the video is in German, but you can use the not-so-great automatic translation that Youtube offers. It is better than nothing, I guess.
