The UK’s number one family theme park, Paultons Park, has announced details of a major new world of attractions which will open to the public in May next year.

‘Tornado Springs’ is a creative imagining of a Midwest desert resort town set in the American heyday of the 1950’s covering over four acres and featuring over eight different rides and attractions. The concept has been developed exclusively by Paultons Park and is designed to appeal to a wide range of ages from 3 to 14, consolidating the park’s position as the top family leisure destination in the UK.

...

The new attractions set to launch at Tornado Springs include the Storm Chaser rollercoaster – a free spinning ride, taking trains of carriages to an exhilarating height of 20 metres above ground. Storm Chaser will be the only rollercoaster of its type in the UK, creating a unique draw for rollercoaster-loving families from across the UK.

That coaster looks like it could be a clone of Sierra Sidewinder at Knott's Berry Farm.  Those Intamin Gyro Swings are supposed to be really good, some people say they are better than the Zamperla models.

You are right that it does look like Sierra Sidewinder, RCDB is now listing it as that model as well. I didn't realize there was already a clone of it at IMG Worlds of Adventure.
