Riding this Rollercoaster will cost you and Arm and a Leg
A new theme park rollercoaster ride is to be rebuilt after dummies used to test it were left with limbs missing and scratches. The Swarm — due to be launched when Thorpe Park in Surrey reopens in March — will undergo major improvements to comply with health and safety rules.
Some of the mannequins were left without any arms or legs following the hell-raising ride which promises to leave thrill-seekers ‘exposed and vulnerable to the extreme near misses and gut-wrenching inversions as it rips through the sky on its mission of complete annihilation.’
After a 127 ft inverted drop the ride will leave theme park goers ‘fighting for their life’ as a few of the test dummies found out for themselves.
A spokesman said: “The ride-testing phase is crucial in ensuring extreme fun doesn’t compromise safety.”
