Naked Roller Coaster Riders’ Attempt To Break World Record Fails, Was Still Fun To Watch
On Sunday a group of daring and baring people rode the Green Scream roller coaster at Southend’s Adventure Island in England naked in an attempt to break a Guinness World Record and raise money for charity.
The record of 102 naked people on a roller coaster, set at the same park on the same ride back in 2010, did not fall, however, as only 57 of the hoped for 122 people actually made the chilly trip.
However, the event was still a success as they managed to raise more than $15,000 for Southend Hospital Charitable Foundation’s Keyhole Cancer Appeal. That and we get to see a bunch of naked people riding a roller coaster including some VERY good-looking females. (Don’t let the screencap above fool you.)
Reports the BBC…
Adventure Island operations director Andrew Renton said: “It’s been an absolutely superb day with people all enjoying the chance to do something memorable, good fun and raise a large amount of money for a fantastic, local charity.”
Lucy Thomas-Clayton, from Southend Hospital Charitable Foundation, said: “It takes a lot of nerve to take off all your clothes in front of complete strangers, plus the world’s media – so we 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 for our vitally important cause.”
Naturally we can’t show you THOSE photos because that would be too fun, but there is a video you can watch below and once you’re done do feel free to head over to Huffington Post and peep some of the pics. They’re really quite impressive, especially the redhead riding in the front car. Wow, we need to find out more about her pronto.
