Tsunami is a steel inverted roller coaster located at M&D's Scotland's Theme Park in Motherwell, Strathclyde, Scotland, UK. Before arriving at the park in 2004, the ride travelled with M&D's carnival. After an accident on 26 June 2016, the ride sat standing but not operating until 27 February 2017, when the ride was announced as being sold to another theme park and dismantled.
On the afternoon of 26 June 2016 the entire yellow train derailed, struck a support and landed on the ground in front of the Tsunami. Some cars landed upside-down whereas others landed on their side. Six ambulances and six fire engines arrived after being called to the amusement park at 15:37 PM. Two adults and eight children have been injured and subsequently taken to hospital. Three children are in critical condition, with one boy having suffered a hand injury. The ride was announced as leaving M&D's on 27 February 2017.
A subsequent health and safety investigation found that repairs to the trains had been carried out using an incompatible welding metal. In March 2019, the park owners were fined £65,000 after pleading guilty to the charges.
