The fun fair has arrived at Worthing for the Carnival week-end and I have been watching a giddying ride called 2Xtremes. It is a towering arm which swings a cradle 159 feet up into the air with eight passengers strapped into open chairs. All one can see from the beach is a lot of waving legs and hear a lot of screams.
Passengers are advised to take glasses off, leave purses and phones on the ground. Most of them are taking their shoes off as well. The cradle swings vigorously so passengers are often upside-down. Lots of odd things fall out of pockets.
