Cruz had never been on a roller coaster before so Simon and Sophia couldn't believe it when he laughed on the ride. Sophia uploaded the video to her social media @houseofmcelroy, where the post received more than 300K views.

Sophia, 34, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, said: "We were like what the hell? We might need to take him on some more rides now. We thought he would be a bit confused but he wouldn't stop laughing.

“We didn't expect him to love it that much. It was hysterical. We saw some other kids who weren't as impressed with the ride, so I'm glad I had the kid that loved it."
