Oakwood Theme Park has revealed the first detailed plans of its new £4-million family-themed attraction which opens later this year.
The Pembrokeshire park is creating a major magical-themed area with seven new rides and attractions; including a spectacular water ride alongside a series of children’s play areas and other themed attractions.
The pirate-themed water ride features a giant 12-metre-tall sculpted skull with a waterfall flume cascading from one of the eye sockets.
Visitors will journey through the inside of the massive rocky skull through a series of themed tableaux before their boat emerges back into the outside world via the eye.
Other rides and attractions will include a junior coaster, a mini galleon, a London taxi ride and an interactive walkthrough experience.
Work is already well under way on the new site with key ride features due to arrive over the next few weeks.
Oakwood Park Director Dominic Jones said: “It’s incredible to see how quickly the build process is going. We have got an excellent and highly-experienced team on site who are working really well together.
“When I come in every morning something new has been completed and it’s so exciting to see our plans coming to life before our eyes.
“The pirate-themed skull flume ride will look absolutely amazing and will provide visitors with an awesome new experience which is totally unique,” he added.
Set in close to 90 acres of spectacular countryside Oakwood is Wales’ biggest family adventure with more than 30 exhilarating rides and amazing experiences to discover.
A unique combination of attractions includes world-class roller, tower and sky coasters, spectacular family rides, children’s themed play areas and so much more.
