Thorpe Park is breathalysing students during Freshers' Week and putting them on their scariest new ride to sober them up. The move is welcomed by cleaners, who are fed up of years of ‘sick-shutdowns’.

Metro reported that the 62mph speeds of The Swarm will purge the students' systems, according to research by neuropsychologist Dr David Lewis.

As this week has seen a 250 per cent rise in on-ride vomiting, a park spokesman said:

"By putting them on The Swarm, we are confident our guests will have a great, and hopefully vomit-free day".

Those assigned to clean the area around The Swarm probably aren't too happy though...pesky students.
