Scream if you want to go to Las Vegas

I was barely paying attention to the radio when I heard this clip yesterday.

Simon Mayo is talking to Nick Thompson, Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, about fairground and theme park rides ready for the long weekend ahead.

It came as something of a surprise to hear someone whose job it is to travel the world and try out every ride ever built (and what a great job that must be) basically admit that he bobbed his pants on X-Scream at the top of the Stratosphere.

I have never had the balls to go on the one that I often call “that stupid see-saw thing”, and hearing this isn’t likely to make it happen any sooner.

This is how Claire rolls.

(The times are misleading because of the different time zones; it took just 45 minutes for the reply!)
