On Saturday, March 2, dozens of naked daredevils will board the notoriously bumpy Grand National in a bold attempt to break a record held for eight years. The world record has not been broken sincewhen free-spirited fundraisers bared all and boarded the Green Scream roller coaster at Adventure Island in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Organised by nudist group British Naturism, thrill-seekers in Blackpool need more than riders to break the record.
