Based off the 1973 movie (not the Nicholas Cage one) UK based theme park Alton Towers is building a ride based on the movie The Wicker Man.
In similar fashion to the movie the rollercoaster itself will be the first wooden rollercoaster to involve fire as a giant wicker style structure stands tall in the centre of the coaster that will burst into flames during your journey.
It has been over 20 years since a wooden rollercoaster has been built and I find it quite appropriate in keeping with the elements that this new ride should include fire. The reason for this is because the ride that it replaced was a log flume water ride.
The ride is set to open this spring and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing the results!
