Feel the thrill of zooming upside down across a dinosaur enclosure with only a lap bar to hold on to.

There's plenty of upside down moments with 360 degree inversions, an inverted stall and a y spiralling heartline roll across the park's lagoon. You'll be so close to the water that you might feel like you can almost touch it. Let's hope there isn't a mosasaurus' in the lagoon!

The "revolutionary-designed ride vehicles" mean that there are no over-the-shoulder straps to hold you in, instead you'll have a lap bar keeping you securely in place.

Those of you who want to feel the rush will be pleased to hear that VelociCoaster's intensity will "amplify a sense of weightlessness from start to finish". In fact you'll experience a massive 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime during the ride.
