Lightwater Valley's Ultimate decapitates deer

Posted Tuesday, September 30, 2014 9:40 AM | Contributed by slithernoggin

Theme park thrill-seekers were left shocked when the rollercoaster they were riding hit and decapitated a deer that had strayed too close to the tracks. Passengers on the Ultimate at Lightwater Valley - the longest rollercoaster in Europe - slammed into the animal in a collision that reportedly decapitated the deer and left passengers covered in blood.

I always wondered if this would happen on the Beast.

I love that the Daily Mail was kind enough to include a stock photo of a deer with the article. Going above and beyond for the reader,


Never has gravity been so uplifting.

I'm pretty shocked that the Daily Wail isn't linking the incident to terrorism. They must be slipping!

Oh, me too. When we went on the Beast tour I was relieved somewhat to see the track areas completely surrounded by fences, not only keeping animals at bay, but I suppose humans as well...
Still, every time I go through one of those tunnels (especially at night) I wonder what hapless wild creature might be lurking in there. Even smaller animals like skunks, raccoons, and possums could cause some real damage.

Or what if there was a Bat on the Beast?

Yea, I thought that for a period of time. But what about Boulder Dash?
