If you die of rat

We went for a drink with Richard in Moshi on Friday night. He was remeniscing of the time he visited the UK in 1991. He particularly remembered a visit to Lightwater Valley, a theme park near Ripon. In particular he remembered a ride called the Rat, and in some detail the repetitive voiceover that played for the queue:

If you enter, no way back
If you die of rat, it’s ok
Oh yes. Ha ha ha.

Richard delivered this in his deadpan baritone. I must get a recording. He recalled being afraid that he might die, and realising that the voiceover was recorded, and there was no man who he could express his fears to – “I don’t think I am insured for this”

Amazing. Search for The Rat on Google.
