Why won’t any of their own staff do it? Well, rumour has it that the ride is haunted – one member of staff felt a ‘cold hand’ touch his shoulder, and another says he ‘saw something moving inside the train’ – but when he checked it out, nobody was there.

The spook-ccessful applicant will get £6.31 per hour – or 10p for each person that screams.

If you’re considering applying, you must be good with the dark, small spaces, and you must not have a nervous disposition. Healthy skepticism of the paranormal not imperative but might come in handy.

Think you’ve got what it takes? Apply here.
