Is This An Exceptionally Long Park Bench, or a Very Short Rollercoaster Ride?

Is This An Exceptionally Long Park Bench, or a Very Short Rollercoaster Ride?There’s some contention over whether Littlehampton’s park bench is the longest in the world, but at 324m in length it’s most certainly the UK’s longest, and can seat 300 weary passerby.

Created by Studio Weave and opened to the public only a few days ago, there are already plans afoot to extend it to 621m in length along the coastal town’s beach. Each wooden plank is reclaimed hardwood, and as you can see in the gallery pictures below, some of the meters resemble a rollercoaster ride more so than a park bench. [Dezeen]
