Fun park bosses are testing their exciting £1million ride ahead of its unveiling.

The new attraction, called Axis, has been installed at Adventure Island, Southend.

The ride has a circle of seats, suspended from a tall structure, with riders facing outwards and the seats spin, while at the same time it will swing like a giant pendulum.

Bosses have been sharing teasers on social media.

They said: "It’s moving! We’re one step closer to being operational! Is everyone as excited as we are?"
