Lightwater Valley in Yorkshire, England is to add two new rides for its 2010 season, which begins on March 27.
The first of the two rides is Whirlwind, a Mondial Topscan which is being rented from showman Alex Crow. The ride is a similar model to Samurai at Thorpe Park, and sees guests sit on rotating gondolas which rotate freely throughout the ride. The attraction, which is normally known as Top Buzz 2, will be on loan to Lightwater Valley for a year.
The second "new" attraction is a major update to the The Rat, the park's oldest rollercoaster. It will be updated to a new theme, Raptor Attack, which sees the carnivorous dinosaurs attacking riders in abandoned mine shafts. The park is estimated to be spending around £500,000 on the upgrade.
