The event centres around the iconic Oblivion ride, the world's first vertical drop roller coaster, which features a hair-raising 180ft vertical drop. Over three days, Brendan works with a team of Thrill Technicians consisting of psychologists and performers, and Thrill Technologists to survey 80 riders in a public spectacle of terror and delight.

Brendan produced the event to experiment with rides as public performance, and also collect rider data to help in his quest to design more thrilling rides in the future.
