Twist n' Shout is a steel looping roller coaster located at Loudoun Castle Theme Park in Galston, South-West Scotland. It opened in 2003 as a part of the new rides line-up brought in by new owner, Henk Bembom. Twist n' Shout, to this day, remains to be one of the most popular rides in the park. For the 2007 season, the trains were given a "mine train" theme.

The ride was previously located at Camelot Theme Park and Dreamland Margate, both of whom rented it from Loudoun Castle’s owner. The ride was designed by Anton Schwarzkopf as one of his Silverarrow model looping coasters. Only three of these exist today – Twist n’ Shout, Scorpion at Busch Gardens Africa in America, and the other is said to be in a travelling carnival in Africa.

Layout

Twist n' Shout has a fairly simple and twisted layout involving a single Vertical Loop as the signature element. After the train is carried 60 feet into the air, riders twist down a drop and pass through the single Vertical Loop element. Following the loop, the train goes through a pretzel turnaround and threads the vertical loop. The train circles around a 900° helix and enters the brake run.
