Originally called the ‘7up Shockwave’, Shockwave is Europe’s first intamin stand-up roller coaster and is still only one of two in Europe. This exhilarating, white-knuckle ride opened in 1994, and is the only stand-up roller coaster with a zero-gravity roll. Shockwave was voted ‘Best stand up roller coaster in the world,’ and we’re sure you’ll agree once you’ve ridden this thrilling ride! Still a firm favourite with thrill seekers visiting Drayton Manor Park, Shockwave reaches heart-racing speeds of 53mph and delivers up to 4 g. The ultimate ride for speed-demons and adrenaline junkies, Shockwave powers you through twisting corkscrews, loops and bends – so brace yourself and wait for the green light to experience the ride of your life!
