The Wipeout will take riders through three inversions along 935ft of track and return back through the loops, at speeds approaching 50mph and experiencing over 5Gs of force.

The 116ft high, Vekoma built steel ride, which previously operated at the now closed American Adventure park as the Missile, has capacity for 760 passengers  per hour.

The £1m coaster is part of a multi-million pound redevelopment programme by its French owner, Compagnie des Alpes, which purchased the park two in 2005.
