Old Review: 8

I'd heard a lot about the thrill ride known as the booster, and had been wanting to try it for a while. There was a version at Fantasy Island, Skegness, but it wasn't operating when I visited. There was even one at a local funfair for me, but it was on a weekend when I was away. This means I've been wanting to try out a booster ride for a couple of years.
I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed. It's a very big arm, that spins a pod at each end in a very big circle. What makes this ride more than a very tall magic carpet is the design of the pods at the end of each arm. You sit back to back, parallel to the arm, but more importantly they have a pivot point, meaning the pods can rock and even flip over freely. This creates some very exciting and thrilling moments as your tipped back into different positions as you spin round the arc. A great ride that enhances Blackpool's ride line up, which was previously a little lacking in thrill rides.
