Let’s face it, roller coasters are bloody scary! I don’t care what you say, behind the bravado everyone of us has that feeling of impending doom when you are strapped into a straight jacket, fixed to a moving vehicle, before racing round a track that would raise the eyebrows of a even a hardened wall of death rider.

A representative for the park has said that extra security measures were being put in place, and along with extra fences warning announcements to “Keep inside the vehicle at all times” were being translated into Deer. Well I’m sure they said something similar but after leaving numerous voicemails trying to get my hand on the ride photo they are yet to get back to me….
