This interesting video and short article, along with some small articles on the right side should inspire a new system or two for ascending and descending. :rofl:

This only happens once a year, so read up on so you might get in on it next year, if you're over in Bloody 'Ole England. :cave softly:

...at a cost of a £15 return trip.

The ride down is free but you have to pay to get out.
