Oakwood Theme Park

Oakwood Theme park is one of Wales' top tourist attractions and one of the Top Ten Theme Parks in the UK. In 2006 Oakwood opened its latest ride to the public: "Speed", a Gerstlauer Euro Fighter roller coaster with a 97-degree drop. This was the first Gerstlauer Euro Fighter in the UK and was at that time the steepest roller coaster in the United Kingdom, only being overtaken by the opening of Thorpe Park's Eurofighter Saw: The Ride in 2009 and Mumbo Jumbo (rollercoaster) at Flamingo Land Resort in the summer of 2009.The 85-foot-tall (26 m) CCI-built wooden roller coaster "Megafobia" has been rated among the best in Europe by enthusiasts.
