'Steepest' rollercoaster in world


A rollercoaster at a North Yorkshire theme park is set to be officially named the world's steepest.

The Mumbo Jumbo ride at Flamingo Land plunges down an incline of 112 degrees from a high point of 30m (98ft).

A Guinness World Records adjudicator is set to ratify the record on Saturday when the ride opens to the public.
