The Corkscrew

The Cork Screw is a roller coaster at Flamingo Land. It is an exciting, fast ride.

The best part of the ride is when you go upside down on the loop which is shaped like a cork screw.

The structure is made from steel and you can see lots of triangular shapes. This helps to make the structure stronger.

The lift has a chain which pulls the train up to the top. Gravity does the rest!
