Oakwood Theme Park has unveiled the name of its new £4m family-themed attraction which is set to open later this month.

The new area which occupies over three acres will be called 'Neverland' and is themed around the world-famous 'Peter Pan' story by author J M Barrie.

Among the new rides are 'Skull Rock' pirate log flume, complete with 12m-tall sculpted skull, the 'Lost Boys Adventure', 'Neverland Chase', 'Tink's Flying School', 'Crocodile Coaster', 'Jolly Roger' mini galleon. 'Hook's House of Havoc' soft play and the 'Sights of London' taxi ride featuring Big Ben, the Tower of London and Nelson's Column.

There is also 'Journey to Neverland' an interactive walkthrough area which takes visitors in to the Darling family home and above the streets of London before arriving in 'Neverland' itself.

Other areas are themed as London parks and there is also a kids' 'Aerodrome' ride as well as food and retail outlets.

Oakwood Theme Park's Dominic Jones said: "What better inspiration for a theme park could there be than Peter Pan - 'the boy who would not grow up'?

"We're on track to be able to open 'Neverland' to visitors later this month and we can't wait to see their reactions. This is by far the biggest investment at Oakwood in recent times and it will completely transform and add significantly to the visitor experience.”
