Tidal Wave arrived at Clarence Pier in 2019, as the family-friendly accompaniment to the park's new large Mad Mouse rollercoaster.
The ride is a Spinning Coaster from SBF Visa Group and came direct to the Pier from Italy. The train has five cars, each of which can spin independently as it makes its way around the track.
It is billed as a family ride, but the rollercoaster provides enough thrills for adults to enjoy too. The back car is quite forceful and gives a bit of a kick, especially as it gets whipped over the top of the main drop.
Although similar spinning coasters are starting to appear at various seaside parks, Tidal Wave is the UK's first SBF Visa Spinning Coaster 5.0 MX611 model, and makes a really nice addition to the park instead of yet another Wacky Worm!
