UK Theme Park Set To Open First-Of-Its-Kind Free Spinning Rollercoaster

Paultons Park is gearing up to expand its theme park and will be home to the UK's only free-spinning rollercoaster as well as swing ride that lifts riders 25 metres above the ground.

The theme park, in Hampshire, has splashed out a whopping £12 million on its new Tornado Springs area, with eight new rides and attractions.

The new area is set to open up to customers in April and is themed around a 1950s desert town in the US.


Among the new rides is the Storm Chaser, a first of its kind in the UK, the free-spinning rollercoaster hits heights of more than 20 metres, while visitors are twirled round in their carriages.

There's also the Cyclonator - a gyro swing pendulum ride which looks absolutely terrifying.

Describing the ride, the park says: "Only for real thrill seekers, the mighty Cyclonator spins and swings you to a height of 25 metres! Experience Cyclonator's awesome power as it harvests the crops for the residents of Tornado Springs. No doubt, this gyro swing pendulum ride will leave you in a spin!"

As well as rides for the thrill-seekers, there's also some new additions for younger park goers, with family drop rides, a cute driving school complete with electric cars and several playground areas.

James Mancey, Operations Director at Paultons Park said: "We're incredibly excited to open the gates and fire up our new rides for guests to enjoy this April.

"We've worked hard to make Tornado Springs the highest-quality, fully immersive family experience on offer in the UK.

"We've really focussed on the detailing in the new area and have added some special touches to Tornado Springs to give it extra wow-factor and to exceed even the wildest of expectations.


"The opening of our new attraction, imagined entirely by our team, is a landmark moment in the evolution of Paultons Park.

"I have no doubt that Tornado Springs will be the most popular and in-demand attraction at Paultons this year as parents look for exciting new adventures to share with their children."

Tickets start from £35.75pp or you can get family tickets starting from £104.75 - you'll have to book ahead as the park will be operating at a reduced capacity when it reopens on 12 April due to covid health and safety measures.
