102 enthusiasts bare all to smash naked rollercoaster recordAugust 9th, 2010 - 12:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, August 09 (ANI): Over 100 enthusiasts went nude to break the record for the most naked people on a rollercoaster.
The participants bared all to take their seats on the Green Scream roller coaster at Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
They smacked the previous record by 70 people after 32 attempted the same feat in 2004 at Alton Towers, in Staffordshire.
Event organiser Tracy Jones said the roller coaster ran three times to accommodate the bumper crowd of nudes.
The ride took place at Adventure Island, raising money for Southend Hospital Charitable Foundation’s Bosom Pals Appeal.
‘People have travelled from all over the UK to take part and we’ve heard some amazing stories from so many who have been directly, or indirectly, affected by cancer and wanted to give something back,” the Telegraph quoted Adventure Island boss Philip Miller as saying.
Barbara Warner, of Bosom Pals, said it ‘takes of lot of nerve to take off all your clothes’ in front of so many people and the world’s media.
She added the appeal ‘would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who was brave enough to bare all and raise such a huge amount of cash - more than 22,000 pounds - for our vitally important cause’. (ANI)
