Crazy Train was a steel roller coaster located at Gulliver's Warrington in Warrington, Cheshire, England, UK. The ride was one of four known Mini Mega Coaster MM29 units produced, one of Pinfari's last designs before going out of business.

History[edit | edit source]

The coaster first opened in 2003 at Codona's Amusement Park in Aberdeen, Scotland. It operated until 2014, and was subsequently transported to Gulliver's Warrington. It reopened the following year. The spot where it once stood at Codona's is now occupied by the Dead Man's Drop Tower and a children's play park. At Gulliver's, the Crazy Train operated until an incident on 15 September 2018, after which it remained closed and was eventually dismantled. It has since been sent to Pleasureland Southport.

Design[edit | edit source]

Purple track and yellow supports.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Unlike other Mini Mega Coaster MM29 roller coasters, the Crazy Train features a minecart themed train.

Incident[edit | edit source]

On September 15, 2018, a wheel assembly became detached, causing the train to stall. No injuries were sustained and all passengers were evacuated by fire crews within approximately two hours.[1] The ride did not operate following the incident and was ultimately dismantled the following year. Another Mini Mega Coaster, Python at Gulliver's Milton Keynes, was also closed following the incident.
