We previously reported on the hilarious incident that occurred while the Park was running tests on the Park’s newest coaster, with water dummies flying through the air as the trains reached the final inversions of the track.

Sik, initially rumored to be called Inversion, was originally scheduled to open in 2020, but the attraction was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pushed back until summer 2022. The nearly £20 million thrill ride will feature ten inversions through over 2800 feet of track, reaching speeds of over 50 miles per hour and taking 24 daring Guests on a 108 feet high journey.
