“I was amazed — really amazed," Reynolds told Good Morning Britain following the ride on the Twistosaurus at Flamingo Land theme park in Malton.

He was also surprised with a birthday cake bearing 105 candles — only two of which were lit — and blown out by the great-grandfather.

According to Guinness World Records, his roller coaster ride was all in an attempt to raise money for a local air ambulance charity.

Reynolds' record-breaking roller coaster ride is actually his second Guinness title. Last year, at 104, he became the oldest person to receive their first tattoo.
