Spinball Whizzer

We were a bit worried we wouldn't get to ride this as Spinball Whizzer was right at the entrance it was very busy so we thought we'd come back to it. Just managed to dash from Rita Queen of Speed before it closed :-)

Spinball Whizzer is a completely new type of ride to me... the closest I've seen to it is the Rattlesnake at Chessington World of Adventures. It's a small rollercoaster that only fits 4 people per car, but what makes it unique is that the car rotates around on top of the track (Think like a spinning top just much slower... it's sometimes called the 4th dimension) . It's a really weird sensation riding on it, especially as each ride is different because the rotation is totally random.
