UK Gets Saw Ride!

Our UK readers often lament that they don't get anything on time, or exclusively in their neck of the woods when it comes to horror. Well, depending on your disposition on the "Saw" series, that may be about to end. From the Press Release:

Opening March 14th at Thorpe Park in the UK comes SAW: THE RIDE, the world’s first ever horror movie-themed rollercoaster that is said to be the most terrifying ride in the world, testing the nerve of all who dare ride as it leaves you at the mercy of the film's master manipulator, Jigsaw.

Face Your Fears with a 'beyond vertical' drop of 100º from a terrifying height of 100ft, and endure three inversions adding another dimension to a whole new experience of adrenaline-fuelled fun for thrill seekers.

Even though I haven't exactly been a champion of "Saw" and its many, many sequels, this story seems pretty awesome to me. How many horror themed rides are there, let alone in the UK? Here are some promo videos provided of the experience, as well as some proof of concept stuff towards the bottom. If you happen to live in the UK, we demand some pictures come March 14th!
