The Gyrosaur is in the Lost Jurassic World section of the park, and opened for the first time today (August 22).

The ‘360 flying degree’ ride is exclusive to the Rotherham resort, and sees those brave enough to try it strapped into seats at the end of a large pole, which spins round on its axis, with the seats spinning full circle as well.

Like the rest of the rides on the Lost Jurassic World zone of the resort, it is decorated to look like a dinosaur, with a large reptilian head at one end of the spinning pole.

A social media post from the park issued the challenge: “Will you be brave enough to experience this beastly 360 degree ride?”

The £37m Gulliver’s Valley opened this year on July 11. Construction on the site began in 2018.

It is set in 250 acres of countryside a stone’s throw from the popular Rother Valley Country Park, just over the border from Sheffield, and boasts 50 attractions set in different ‘worlds’ that make up the areas of the resort.

There are 26 rides in total, suitable for a mixture of ages between two and 13.
