Great-grandfather breaks record after celebrating his 105th birthday with roller coaster ride
All Jack Reynolds wanted for his 105th birthday was to ride a roller coaster.
On Thursday, Reynolds, of Chesterfield, England, became the oldest man in the world to ride a non-inversion roller coaster. He was enthralled as he took the record-breaking ride with his 56-year-old daughter Jayne.
"I was amazed — really amazed," Reynolds told Good Morning Britain following the ride on the Twistosaurus at Flamingo Land theme park in Malton.
He was also surprised with a birthday cake bearing 105 candles — only two of which were lit — and blown out by the great-grandfather.
Reynolds' record-breaking roller coaster ride is actually his second Guinness title. Last year, at 104, he became the oldest person to receive their first tattoo.
