Oakwood Theme Park is enlisting the help of one of the world’s leading theming companies to create their new £4-million family-themed attraction which opens later this year.
The Pembrokeshire park is working with UK-based KD Theming Technologies to help build a series of magical new ride experiences which include a pirate-theme log flume water ride, complete with a gigantic 12-metre-tall sculpted skull.
The Huddersfield firm’s previous work includes the theming for the Legoland Hotel in Windsor, the Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester and the SpongeBob Squarepants ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Oakwood Theme Park Director, Dominic Jones, said: “We’re delighted that KD Theming Technologies agreed to help us create our magical new attraction.
“They’re reputation and attention to detail is second to none and, having had the opportunity to get a sneak preview of what they have created, I can’t wait for it to be unveiled to our visitors,” he added.
The exact details of the new attraction is being kept secret, however it will include a London street scene; complete with black cab rides, Nelson’s Column, Big Ben and the Tower of London, along with a series of magical experiences and walkthrough areas and the pirate flume ride.
KD Theming Technologies are world leaders in the design, manufacture and installation of theme park ride decoration, seasonal displays, animation, animatronics and theming.
For over 30 years they have been working with theme parks to provide wonderful, interactive and magical decorations bringing ideas and dreams to life.
Matthew Kitchen-Dunn, Sales and Production Director, said: “It has been a pleasure working with and designing for the team from Oakwood Theme Park and we wish them every success for their opening and for the coming year.”
Set in nearly 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.
