I think that's the Jet Stream at Ocean Beach Amusement Park in Wales. At first I thought it was a Zyklon, but after a little searching found it is a Pinfari. I found a picture of it at RCDB.

I just googled using Rhyl Wales roller coaster as the keywords and came up with some sites about the park which actually might interest you. I read that there were two coasters at this park a Jet Stream and Looping Coaster. I then went to RCDB and did a search for a Jet Stream coaster in Rhyl Wales and sure enough they had info and a photo of it. So, it really wasn't difficult in finding just figuring out the right keywords. :)

I do web searches all the time for defunct coaster info, and I know it can get a bit frustrating when the info isn't so easily attainable especially photos. I'm glad I could help you out.

BTW, I read that this park is a really good one with great rides. But I wonder why RCDB doesn't have the looping coaster listed even as a defunct coaster at the park. Maybe I should look again.
