Scream on the new SAW extreme roller coaster at Thorpe Park, and the new YouGoDo SEO Rankings

This week sees the opening of the new SAW ride at Thorpe Park in the UK.

To quote Thorpe Park:


The Wait is Over…

Be first in line to ride the world’s most terrifying rollercoaster and get down to the UK’s thrill capital, THORPE PARK, on 14th March 2009 for the hotly-anticipated official opening of SAW – The Ride.

The first ever horror movie themed coaster, SAW – The Ride is based on the hugely popular blood, gore and suspense based horror film franchise, ‘Saw’, and promises to torment and terrify all visitors.

Like the underlying plot of the Saw films, SAW – The Ride is designed to provide the ultimate test to all who dare ride it, placing them at the mercy of the film’s master manipulator ‘Jigsaw’ to endure a series of nerve-shredding challenges guaranteed to set pulses racing.

The biggest test of SAW – The Ride will be a formidable ‘beyond vertical’ drop of 100ยบ from a height of 100ft, making it the steepest freefall drop in the world. Riders will also endure three death-defying inversions that will add another dimension to a whole new experience of adrenaline-fuelled fun for thrill seekers.

SAW - The Ride will be the Park’s fourth major rollercoaster, joining an already impressive portfolio of extreme ride experiences, including Stealth – Europe’s fastest rollercoaster, Colossus – the world’s first ten looping rollercoaster and Nemesis Inferno – the 4.5 ultimate G-force experience."
