The ride was originally a permanent theme park attraction at the American Adventure and has now been converted into a fully mobile attraction. All of the work was carried out in the UK using the skills and services of locally based engineers, steel fabricators and other tradesmen. At 80m by 35m, the Runaway Train is a significant addition to any major event, with a build or dismantle time of around one week required.
The Runaway Train is the largest mobile ride ever built in the United Kingdom and would be a stunning headline attraction for any event. It was acquired by the Mellors Group in 2009 and has had a complete rebuild at considerable expense.
