Loop the loop the loop the loop the loop the loop the loop the loop the loop the loop..!; EXCLUSIVE.
SO, you thought rollercoasters couldn't get any more hair-raising?
Well, prepare yourself for Colossus, the ride with a world record 10 loop the loops.
I was the first to climb aboard Thorpe Park's new pounds 10million attraction after The Mirror had been invited to try it out.
Suddenly I was being hurtled around in every angle at 65mph, 100ft above the Surrey countryside with G-forces blurring my senses.
It's even designed so the public can wander through the twisting metal and witness close-up the terror on people's faces. Colossus was created by designer John Wardley - who gave us Nemesis and Oblivion at Alton Towers.
He said: "I'm thrilled with it, it's exceeded even my expectations."
