Wales' Oakwood Theme Park announces details of £4m attraction

BY Aoife Dowling

Wales' Oakwood Theme Park has revealed the first details of its new £4m family-themed attraction, which opens later this year.

The Pembrokeshire park is creating a magical-themed area with seven new rides and attractions; including a water slide, a series of children's play areas and other themed attractions.

The pirate-themed water ride features a 12m (129ft) sculpted skull with a waterfall flume cascading from one of the eye sockets.

Visitors will journey through the inside of the rocky skull before coming out through the eye.

Other rides and attractions will include a junior coaster, a mini galleon, a London taxi ride and an interactive walkthrough experience

Oakwood Park director, Dominic Jones, said: "It's incredible to see how quickly the build process is going. We have an excellent and highly-experienced team on site that are working really well together.

"The pirate-themed skull flume ride will look absolutely amazing and will provide visitors with an awesome new experience which is totally unique."

Set on 90 acres of countryside, Oakwood is Wales' biggest family adventure with more than 30 rides and experiences including roller, tower and sky coasters, family rides and children's themed play areas.
