BRITS scared of number 13 will be offered therapy so they can try out a new £15million rollercoaster.
It comes after builder Paul McNichol, 44, had to stop work on the scary new Th13teen ride at Alton Towers Resort, Staffs. He was so paralysed by his fear that he broke out in cold sweats.
But after sessions with top hypnotherapist Bonita Rayner-Jones, he was able to conquer his terror. Bonita said: “Fear of the number 13 is common. But we were able to tackle the problem once and for all.”
The ride starts on March 20. To find out more about hypnotherapy at Alton Towers Resort, contact email@example.com
Though the image had been spotted in a brochure and scanned online this past week, a higher quality version
