A theme park in England has banned visitors from screaming on their rollercoaster.

The Big One ride at The Big Sheep park in Devon opened last Friday but they had had to put up signs asking people not to scream on the ride as they don’t want to upset their neighbours.

Visitors have been urged to enjoy themselves but asked not to make a sound as they race around the 400m long ride.

But it comes with a sign saying: ‘This is a family ride – not a white knuckle thrill ride.

‘Enjoy the views but we love our neighbours. PLEASE DO NOT SHOUT OR SCREAM! Thank ewe.’

The attraction claims that their new ride is the "biggest, highest and fastest" roller coaster North Devon has ever seen, reaching heights of up to 13m.

The park owners had faced a five year battle to get planning permission for the ride because of concerns from local residents about the noise.
