Last year's Blackpool leaflet mentions a new ride called "Millennium Bug". Could someone please enlighten me as to what it is, as I forgot/didn't have time to check it out?

Thank you.

A large centrifugal round cage like contraption that spins around in its own encased dome which now they call the Millenium Dome opposite what used to be the turnpike and is now called the grand prix.
