Flamingo Land demonstrated why ride testing is an essential part of the build process when some of the test dummies fell out during the new roller coaster’s test run.
Sik at Flamingo Land
Testing has now started on the new ride but it was not a great start for the test dummies as they fell out of the ride. Watch the video of the test run filmed by Go Theme Parks below.
Unfortunately, the dummies were unavailable for comment but from watching the video below we can establish that the back seats offer the most thrilling ride! ????
It is nothing to be concerned about as the dummies only have bodies from the waist upwards so the normal restraints used by regular guests are not applicable for this type of test. The idea of the testing is to ensure that the ride can make it successfully around the track.

The video below shows the ride in action and as the ride nears the end of its course the dummies leave their seats.
