What exactly do you mean by Chav-Central? What's a chav? It sounds like, through context, that you are talking about american "white trash" or "ghetto" people. Is that it?

Basically, if a bit closer to ghetto than white trash. Specifically, it's those kids who wear designer (or fake designer) label stuff, act loud as hell and obnoxious, usually fake or shallow. Think "Pretty Fly (For A White Guy".

They are saying that it is "The world's first rollercoaster experience fusing wood and fire" (pretty sure Wodan and Apocalypse are also Woodies that have fire effects though) so it will be real.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."
