Oakwood in Wales will now open a new area at the theme park based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in 2015.
Oakwood Theme Park
The new £2m multi-attraction will replace the former Wild West themed area, which was previously home to popular dark ride Brer Rabbit's Burrow, alongside the current Spooky 3D haunted house ride and Panning for Gold. The new attractions will be themed as The Headless Horseman and The Tree of the Dead but further details are still a closely guarded secret.
The revamp is another new use for the space, which in the past was also themed as New Orleans with Voodoo Mansion (now Spooky 3D) and Brer Rabbit's Burrow. Previously to that it was called Jake's Town with Nutty Jake's Gold Mine (which became Brer Rabbit's Burrow) and animatronic puppet show Jake's Music Hall (which was replaced with Vodoo Mansion, and is now Spooky 3D).
The new area was due to open for Summer 2014, as ThemeParks-UK reported in April, but has been pushed back to 2015.
New for 2014, a Teacups ride has been added to Circus Land which opened last year with 4 other attractions, the Carousel, Circus Express, Clown Coaster and Scorches Playhouse. Originally due to to open last year, Hook's House of Havoc joins Neverland in May 2014 as part of the park’s £4.5m Peter Pan-themed area, which spreads across more than three acres and features 10 family rides and attractions. Finally, new themed restaurant The Oak Tree showcases the best of Welsh produce.
Oakwood's Head of Marketing, Clare Stansfield, said:
Set in 90 acres of spectacular Pembrokeshire countryside, Oakwood is one of the UK’s leading theme parks with more than 30 exhilarating attractions; including four world class rides to enjoy.
Over the past two years we have invested well in excess of £5m in developing new areas of the park and providing visitors with a series of quality new attractions. This will continue next year with our exciting new ‘Legend of Sleepy Hollow’ which will feature a series of spooky new attractions and a major new ride experiencer!
