A YouTuber has shared a video white knuckle ride on Great Yarmouth’s iconic rollercoaster from his point of view.
The Coaster Crazy channel - run by Andy Rumney - has allowed thrillseekers a chance to see what it’s like to ride the classic 1932 coaster at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach in a video posted this week.
The clip shows two goes on the coaster, including the elevated views over Yarmouth’s beach and out towards sea.
It breezes by the rest of the pleasure beach attractions, accompanied by the screams of Mr Rumney’s fellow passengers on board.
The 980 metre track is the second longest ‘scenic’ rollercoaster in the world, and one of only eight scenics in the world.
It is also one of only two in the world which requires a brakeman to control its speed.
British band, Madness, famously rode the rollercoaster in their video for House of Fun.
