NEW for 2018! Wicker Man

Wicker Man is the first new wooden rollercoaster to open in the UK in 20 years, and the world's first rollercoaster that fuses fire and wood!

Climb on-board the Beornen’s works train, splintering around a labyrinth of twisted track as the burning embers light the path towards the six-storey high flaming effigy. As you speed towards the Wicker Man, he amazingly ignites into flames as the train bursts through his chest three times.
