An adrenaline junkie trying Europe’s fastest and tallest rollercoaster was
hit by a pigeon after being strapped in for his 112mph ride.
He didn’t appear to realise at first what had hit him just 12 seconds into the ride.
But a split-second later he looked down at his left shoulder to see the bird
lying there as it appeared to be retained by the force of gravity.
The video footage showed him bleeding from a small cut to his right cheek.
The 40ft-high Red Force accelerator lets people experience the same sensations
felt by Formula 1 drivers as it hits speeds of 112mph in just five seconds.
