A NEW £750,000 thrill ride is all ready to open at Paultons Park.

The theme park near Romsey has followed up last year’s addition of Peppa Pig World with the electrifying new ride Magma, aimed more towards the slightly older youngsters and the mums and dads of the families who visit.

In the dinosaur-themed attraction opening on Saturday, up to 16 people at a time are lifted 25 metres into the air and dropped back down towards earth at a breathtaking speed.

The Magma ride opens this Saturday.
