I recently came across this news article again talking about Jubilee Odyssey (Vekoma SLC at Fantasy Island).

What a bizarre discomfort this coaster created! LOL

Ride modified after 'nipple complaints'

Complaints about "nipple burn" have led to a redesign of a roller coaster in Lincolnshire.


About a dozen women have complained to staff at Fantasy Island, at Ingoldmells, near Skegness, after riding the Jubilee Odyssey coaster.

It appears the straps on the safety harnesses provided a bit too much support for some peoples' liking.

Engineers have gone to work on the problem and £60,000 has been spent adjusting the harnesses.

A spokesman for the amusement park said: "As far as we are concerned, this is a serious situation.

"It is a problem that we managed to solve, but not without considerable expense.

"This is something that should not have happened, but it did."

The roller coaster re-opens this weekend after the winter break.

Jubilee Odyssey opened in 2002 as the world's longest suspended roller coaster.
