Prepare Yourself for Saw: The Ride

Hold on to your hats kids, because the country that gave us Doctor Who, Monty Python and the Boston Massacre is now home to a rollercoaster based on the most successful horror franchise of the 21st century.

That's ride, it's Saw: The Ride. Located in the UK's famous Thorpe Park, the torture-porn-themed coaster is set to open to the public on Saturday. But if you head on over to Stuff.tv, you can read an exclusive review from a lucky Brit who had the opportunity to ride the thing.

**FRIDAY UPDATE** According to a Press Association report, the ride had to be temporarily shut down during another sneak preview trail yesterday due to some "minor" technical difficulties. No word on whether it will open tomorrow as planned. Also, one patron had to be removed after suffering a panic attack on the ride. If that's not an endorsement for the world's first horror movie-inspired theme ride, I don't know what is!

according to his Facebook, Darren Lynn Bousman was on the ride when it broke down. Irony.
