I am the definition of an adrenaline junky. The first to join the queue for every theme park’s scariest ride, theme parks are the ideal holiday destination for me!
If this sounds like you, then you will be happy to hear that there are so many theme parks scattered across our globe just waiting for you (and me) to get strapped into their fastest roller coaster and make us scream as we tip over the edge.
I have put together a short guide of five amazing thrill rides that are the perfect activity for adrenaline junkies to take part in while they are on holiday.
SAW – Thorpe Park, United Kingdom
SAW, the physiological thriller directed by James Wan, has come to life in the shape of a thrilling roller coaster.
SAW – The Ride is the world’s first horror movie roller coaster, where riders will experience a beyond vertical drop of 100-degrees from a height of 100-feet.
If that is not enough for you, the ride has several corkscrews that will have your head in a spin and before you get strapped in, you must queue in a very dark and eerie warehouse where you will have the chance to see Jigsaw himself.
The Hulk – Universal Orlando Resort, USA
Through The Hulk roller coaster – located at Universal Orlando Resort at Walt Disney World in the United States – riders are able to feel the strength and rush of becoming the super-powered, green machine himself.
After climbing to the top of the ride and teetering over the edge, as soon as you start your fast and furious journey your surroundings will go racing pas you.
