SAW the ride
SAW - The boasts a nerve-shredding beyond vertical drop of 100° from a staggering height of 100ft. Based on the most popular horror film franchise in history, 'Saw', the new ride also boasts a variety of macabre features that mimic the sinister trap and torture scenarios portrayed in the films. Most significantly, riders will have to face the 'head chopper' at the base of the huge freefall drop which consists of four huge serrated blades that riders are hurtled towards giving the feeling that they will be beheaded.
In addition to plummeting its riders from nerve-shredding heights towards the head chopper, SAW - The Ride is also the biggest G-force rollercoaster experience in Europe. The coaster hits between a massive 4.0 and 4.7G's a total of six times throughout the course of the 100 second ride duration subjecting its passengers to a more extreme G-force experience than a space shuttle rocket launch.
