World record for naked ride

MORE than 100 thrill-seekers rode a rollercoaster naked, smashing the world record.
The 102 butt-naked adrenaline junkies let it all hang out as they took on the swerves and loops of the fairground ride to raise £22,000 for breast cancer research.

It took place on the Green Scream Rollercoaster at Southend-on-Sea, Essex, beating the previous record by 70 riders.

Organiser Tracy Jones said: “We wanted to raise as much money as possible for this brilliant charity and give everybody who was brave enough, the chance to be part of the world record. Consequently, we had to run the Naked Rollercoaster three times.”

In 2004, to mark 50 years of Guinness World Records, 32 people rode on the Nemesis at Alton Towers in Staffordshire to beat the previous record of 28 held by Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe Park in Surrey.

The ultimate white nipple ride took place at Adventure Island on Southend seafront, and generated funds for Southend Hospital Charitable Foundation’s Bosom Pals Appeal.

Senior Fundraising Manager at Bosom Pals, Barbara Warner said: “It takes a lot of nerve to take off all your clothes in front of 102 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 more than £22,000 – for our vitally important cause.”
