A new ride towering over Great Yarmouth seafront will open today.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council has secured the 45-metre tall Slingshot, which flings participants, safely secured in a capsule, some 60 metres into the air, offering an adrenaline rush combined with exhilarating views over the Golden Mile.

For this summer only, the attraction on the former Amazonia site, in Marine Parade, will be open during peak periods and weekends until at least the end of the holiday season.

Council leader Graham Plant said: 'While the council explores longer-term options for this part of the Golden Mile, this Slingshot brings a distinct experience for the season, complementing the existing offer and providing an additional reason for people to visit our fantastic resort and the attractions on the seafront.'
