Twist 'N' Joust

Twist 'N' Joust was an EOS Rides Spinning Coaster which, following the departure of Python in 2018, was the biggest rollercoaster at Gulliver's Land until it was removed in 2021.

The coaster sat near the top of the park in Adventure World beside The Whirlwind balloon ride and opposite the Gully Town play area, having been relocated from near the castle in Lilliput Land to make way for Dragon Siege in 2019.

The train consisted of five circular spinning cars, each seating four riders. After climbing the tyre driven lift hill, the train traversed a track featuring undulating slopes and tight turns which caused the cars to spin. Things could get especially wild in an unbalanced car, where only two riders were both seated on the same side for example!

Twist 'N' Shout was fun, but unfortunately didn't seem to be that reliable with frequent downtime. Apparently Gulliver's bought it from an indoor park in Italy, and the coaster didn't seem to have appreciated being put outside and faced with the elements.

The ride was relocated to Funland on Hayling Island where it reopened as Spinosaurus in December 2021.
