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 June 26, 2016, the ride sat standing but not operating until February 27, 2017, when the ride was announced as being sold to another theme park and dismantled.
