This is what happens when you hit a pigeon on a roller coaster

The opening of Ferrari Land, a new theme park in Spain, got off to a bit of a dramatic start.

A rider on one of the park’s rollercoasters, who was suited up for the occasion, collided with a pigeon and got hit in the neck. Ouch.

Luckily for us, the whole thing was captured on video.

Including slow motion.

You can see the bird crashing into his neck, and the look on his face as it changes from confusion to realisation at what’s happened.

Then you can see him tell his friend, who had been totally oblivious to the drama unfolding next to him, before the pair carry on as if nothing happened.

The video has been watched more than 80,000 times.

That's one famous pigeon.

Although, sadly, it looks like the pigeon might not have made it.

Which is a bit of a downer.
