Kids get high on Big One!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THESE are the heart-stop­ping im­ages as a group of dare­devil young­sters sneak onto Blackp­pol’s fa­mous Big One roller­coaster and FREE-CLIMB to the very top.

A knee-weak­en­ing video has ap­peared on­line filmed by the boys them­selves as they scale the 215-ft thrill ride while it’s shut to the public.

The gang inch their way up the twisty struc­ture, cling­ing on to the steel frame­work, some­times by their fin­ger­tips, and at times show­ing off by hang­ing from the ride.

They even­tu­ally make their way back down and be­fore be­ing ap­pre­hended by staff and po­lice, they jump onto the roofs of nearby build­ings and es­cape.

A health and safety of­fi­cer told Mid­week Sport: “It’s the height of stu­pid­ity – lit­er­ally.”
