The world’s first Peppa Pig theme park attraction, Peppa Pig World, is getting bigger and better as Paultons Park announces plans for a significant extension with fun new rides and facilities.

Fans of the Entertainment One (eOne) hit TV series will be snorting with delight when the two new rides, The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride and Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club, are unveiled to the public on Wednesday May 16, 2018.

Line IP has submitted an application for a European Trademark for the name WICKER MAN and a logo. It covers many categories including theme park rides.

This could be the confirmed name for Secret Weapon 8, the new wooden roller coaster in the area previously occupied by The Flume, opening at Alton Towers in 2018. The ground-breaking new ride development is currently being built by Great Coasters International.

Alton Towers will be celebrating Halloween in spine-tingling style, with a new fourth scare maze for 2017. Visit the theme park on 7th - 8th, 14th - 15th and 20th - 31st October for hair-raising antics and spooktacular surprises!

The park is open each day from 10am - 9pm throughout the event - giving you a whole 11 hours of scares. When night falls, it's an incredible opportunity to ride the most famous rides at Alton Towers in the dark.

New for 2017 at Chessington Howl'o'ween and with a 'three bat rating’, Creepy Caves Unearthed is said to be the scariest attraction yet.

Room on the Broom Spooky Story Time will also join the lineup in 2017, alongside the return of Curse of the Lost Tomb and Trick or Treat Wood.

The proposed London Resort in Kent, is now set to open in 2023 as the application for the necessary permissions for the theme park resort has been delayed once again.

London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), the developer behind the plans to build a multi-billion pound entertainment resort, announces that its final round of public consultation on plans for the London Resort will now be taking place in early 2018 and that it will be submitting the Development Consent Order application in Spring. This latest round of events represents the fifth stage of an extensive programme of community engagement carried out by LRCH, which has already seen over 8,000 people participate. The anticipated grand opening date is now in 2023.

Rootin Tootin Target Trail has opened on Main Street at Pleasurewood Hills, an interactive family ride that’s fun for everyone.

New for 2017, the laser shooter dark ride is suitable for adults and children of all heights and ages (under 1.1 metre must be accompanied by an adult) and replaces HoBs PiT, the previous horror-themed dark ride that opened in 2013 as 'one of the UK's scariest attractions', with a 12A restriction. 

In 2017, brace yourselves for a Fright Nights with even more screams as Thorpe Park collaborates with a global horror phenomenon in anticipation of the event's most horrifying year yet.

With new horror experiences, attractions and even more scares, Fright Nights in 2017 gets even darker. AMC's smash hit TV show The Walking Dead joins the lineup.
