Helter Skelter

"When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Until I get to the bottom and I see you again"

So begins the Beatles song Helter Skelter, inspired by the Victorian ride. These rides were very popular at seaside towns in Victorian times. This one currently tucked away on Southbank for the summer wasn't the hit it might once have been.
