OAKWOOD Theme Park
Park News - (3/7/11) Oakwood has decided to change the name of Hyrdo to Drenched.
(7/15/10) A huge trip report from Oakwood has been posted to Theme Park Review this week. They’ve got POV videos of Speed: No Limits and Megafobia, plus a look at the parks strange collection of dark rides.
2013 - Neverland / New Rides - (5/14/13) After months of secrecy, Themeparks-UK tells us that Oakwood has finally revealed that their new top secret themed area project opening later this month is called Neverland and is themed around the story of Peter Pan. Neverland will include several attractions including the Skull Rock log flume, Lost Boys Adventure, Neverland Chance, Tink’s Flying School, Crocodile Coaster, the Jolly Roger mini galleon, Hook’s House of Havoc soft play area and the Sights of London taxi ride. There will also be an interactive walk-through attraction called Journey to Neverland.
(3/8/13) Oakwood has revealed some plans for their big family-themed expansion to open later this year. There is a great piece of artwork posted to ThemeParks-UK showing off a Pirate themed log flume where the final plunge comes out of the eye socket of a large Skull Rock looking structure.
(2/25/13) I’m not sure how true this is, but there is a rumor going around claiming that Oakwood’s new family water attraction may be the old log ride from the now closed Camelot theme park. Anyone else know more? I’ve been made aware that this was also posted to the Oakwood Wikipedia page, but typically most theme park based rumors on Wikipedia end up being false.
(1/1/13) It has been a number of years since Oakwood really have planned a major new expansion for the amusement park, but now the park says that they are planning on spending more than £4 million on new rides, a restaurant and outdoor play areas that will open in 2013. Of the seven new attractions on the way, one will be a new water ride, while the focus of most will be on the ‘family’ demographic.
