    The Guardian reporting on youths "breaking in" (translate really means "climbed a fence") and riding the rollercoaster at 4am one morning. Given that entry is normally £21 each I can perfectly understand why.

    I saw that, they actually turned the ride on and started running it. A much better idea than the one Jobs had of building his own car to run on the rails..

    Says in the paper that they only got caught because they then broke into a cafe that had an alarm and had a food fight, Secca must have been playing bingo :)

    "The youths broke into the amusement park before switching on the Blue Flyer ride and taking it for a 30-minute spin"

    30 minutes! That's one hell of a hell of a game of Bingo! I mean, these things aren't quiet are they?

    Not welcome in Blackpool applies to a fair few on here, standard :D

    It's been a decent playground over the years

    The story certainly brought a smile to my face and reminded me of the 'leisure parks' rinsed by ProUrbex back in the day ;)

    Props :thumb

    here is an update on what happened afterwards... 12 week curfew, £85 costs and £85 victim surcharge - but all that is for whatever happened in the café and for taking coins from an ornamental fountain, not for turning on and riding the rollercoaster in the middle of the night
