    I bet Merlin have got some sort of new theming object with some sort of new gimmick to add to the ride.

    Why introduce a spelling error? The ride's name is in German.

    Can anybody explain the Statue of Liberty just randomly placed near Colossos? It just seems a bit out of place.

    It just to stand in the middle of the lake and they re-used it for the "Land der Vergessenen" / "Land of the Forgotten" which is supposed to lock dystopian. The theming is very incomplete, so the statue looks kind of lost there. But remember the poem "The New Colossus"? It kind of fits, haha.

    Thanks @CSLKennyNI! Not exactly surprising that it will likely stay Colossos, but I know some parks have done this sort of thing before when refurbishing a ride. For example, I think Black Hole at Alton Towers was called New Black Hole for the first year after refurbishment.
