M&D’s reopens rides following Tsunami accident

Tornado rollercoaster at M&D's

M&D’s theme park has fully reopened a month after the Tsunami rollercoaster derailed and injured 10 people.

The Scottish theme park’s outdoor rides had remained closed since the 26 June crash, although its indoor attractions reopened soon afterwards.

The Tsunami rollercoaster itself will remain closed until further notice due to the ongoing investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

An M&D’s spokesman said: “All of the rides have undergone thorough independent testing and, following dialogue with the HSE, the theme park has now reopened to our customers.

“Safety remains our paramount concern and each and every ride will continue to be safety-checked on a daily basis.

“The Tsunami remains closed until further notice.”

Earlier this week, one boy was reported as remaining in hospital, while the other nine victims have been discharged following medical treatment.
