When Japan reopened its theme parks in July, authorities issued very strict guidance to visitors that screaming on rollercoasters was banned. As it risked the spread of coronavirus, parks kindly requested instead that riders “Please scream inside your heart”.
If that sounds difficult, perhaps they could take a lesson from Loose Women pundit, Jane Moore, who seems to have perfected the art of doing just that.
One Popbitch reader remembers being at a launch event at Thorpe Park where they made full use of the lack of queues for Nemesis Inferno. Just before they were due to enjoy a ride on an otherwise completely empty carriage, Jane Moore came running up asking if she could get on too.
Thinking she was excited to ride, they invited her to sit next to them – but was surprised to discover that, as the ride set off and the whiplash kicked in, Moore made absolutely no sound, expression or show of emotion for the entire thing.
And then, when it was finished, walked off in total silence.
