The BBC reports that the Thorpe Park amusement park has played host to a record-breaking group of students who staged the world’s largest naked rollercoaster ride. The theme park offered a £1,000 prize for the best group picture on board its Nemesis Inferno ride, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. 81 students rose to the challenge, though only 28 were included in the official count, since the ride can only take that number in one go. The stunt will now be officially recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as “Most Naked People on a Rollercoaster”.

The IPKat, ever a follower of contemporary art, wonders if, Spencer Tunick, famed for his photographs of nude people in urban settings, might not have something to say about this.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
