OK, this one will test all you anoraks / wrinklies / cult television addicts out there...I've always wanted to know which park and which coaster Patrick McGoohan rode as the prisoner in the episode 'the girl who was death'?

The park had a River Caves, an Astroswirl, a Water Chute, a ghost train..and that's all I can tell you really...oh and the River Caves cost 1/9d to ride..

Any answers???..It's been annoying me for years..

Your guess is as good as mine, but here goes:

The Prisoner was filmed in Wales, so maybe the park was Ocean Beach, Coney Beach, or Barry Island.

As you'll know, Blackpool Pleasure Beach has all those rides, but you'd recognise it if it were that wouldn't you?

Southport has a Ghost Train and River Caves. Did it used to have an Astroswirl and Water Chute? It could be that.
