Colossos is a woodenroller coaster at Heide Park in Soltau, Lower Saxony, Germany. It is the first wooden roller coaster to use prefabricated track.

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.
