New! Festival of Thrills

4th April - 6th May 2022

Celebrate the Resort’s awesome rollercoasters as they reawaken this spring at the Resort’s Festival of Thrills! With serious speeds and heart-pumping loops, twists and turns, guests can join the chosen ones on Wicker Man, brave Oblivion’s iconic vertical drop and enjoy G-forces greater than a space shuttle on the legendary Nemesis. To heighten the excitement, each of the Resort’s big 7 rollercoasters will have its own live music playing out at this adrenalin-inducing event!
