Dahland: New at Oakwood Theme Park

Inspired by the works of Roald Dahl, one of the world’s most loved and cherished authors, Dahland is the new themed area at Oakwood Theme Park in 2017. The area begins with the story of James and the Giant Peach but will grow in future years.

The centrepiece of Dahland is Flight of the Giant Peach, a Pinfari roller coaster that is over 1,000ft long, 36ft high and reaches speeds of 28mph. The ride previously operated at M&D's - Scotland's Theme Park as Cobra, Express and finally Space Coaster. Joining the roller coaster will be a walk-through attraction, trampolines and a performance area.

Ladybirdoline and The Magnifitorium are already open, with Flight of the Giant Peach and Aunt Spiker & Sponge’s House opening later this year.

Flight of the Giant Peach
Climb aboard the oversized Ladybird or Grasshopper trains, and take to the skies on a journey from Dover, England to New York, America. It’ll be fast, twisty and bumpy along the way, so hold on tight and watch the world pass by.

Hop on The Ladybirdoline, and bounce the day away on your very own trampoline. The giant ladybird is just waiting for you to bounce on by.

Aunt Spiker & Sponge’s House
Enter through the giant peach into the dark world of Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge. This walk-through attraction also provides the entrance to Flight of the Giant Peach, however there is a separate exit for those not wanting to ride. Look out for some popular characters as you pass through the house.

The Magnifitorium
Head on down to The Magnifitorium located downtown in New York for live shows, character appearances and performances! The schedule changes daily, so keep an eye out for information boards in the park for more information.
