Take a ride on one of the UK's oldest roller coasters.

Every Tuesday I shall be showcasing a new gem from YouTube's vast library, but with a Norfolk twist. This week's video is from YouTube user wwwCOASTERFORCEcom.

Have a frount seat on one of Norfolk's most loved roller coasters at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach. This roller coaster is made of wood and was built in 1932, and is only one of its kind still in oppereation in the UK. This ride still features the use of a brakeman who rides on the train, controlling the speed and the breaks. It does not matter if you are a scaredy cat, just sit back and watch this trilling ride from the comfort of your home.
