Speed dating launched on roller-coasters

275x250.jpgAlton Towers is launching roller-coaster speed dating, where visitors will have as little as 49 seconds to woo a potential partner between their terrified screams.

Single riders will be paired up at the entrance to rides like Rita: Queen of Speed and Spinball Whizzer and sat next to each other for the duration of the ride.

That will give them the chance to enjoy a first date at speeds of up to 100kph with a force of 4.7G.

Like it isn't hard enough to come up with something impressively witty to say on a speed dating session, now you have to do it while traveling 60mph upside-down on a roller-coaster.

"The combination of a high endorphin rush and the production of adrenaline brought on by rides makes for a heady mixture, which is perfect for the first date.

"The flow of these chemicals almost guarantees to increase levels of attraction between singles and put them in the mood for romance even after the ride is over."
