Health insurance for new rollercoaster at Alton Towers

Alton Towers is to provide thrill seekers health insurance for their new rollercoaster TH13TEEN .

By paying an extra £1, guests will be covered for physical and psychological trauma and have access to a medical expert stationed on site near the ride. This measure has been taken by the resort after it revealed that TH13TEEN, which opens on March 20, will combine the ultimate elements of physical as well as psychological fear in one, in what experts are calling the world’s first ‘psychoaster’.

Dr Amar Ahmed from Wilmslow, Cheshire, one of the team of doctors who is working with Alton Towers Resort on TH13TEEN said: “Rollercoasters are known for producing extreme physical effects which is why we like riding them. TH13TEEN is a new kind of coaster that riders will not be prepared for and the Alton Towers Resort is taking every measure to ensure guests will be safe, including access to expert medical help.”
