Camelot Theme Park:

Camelot Theme Park takes visitors in a world of wizardry and heroic knighthood with a mix of rollercoaster rides and live entertainment and offers rides to kids and ‘big kids’ of all ages, whether you like the big roller coasters, log flumes or prefer something a little gentler for the younger ones and even an indoor play area if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Knightmare: A three million pound ride, will subject you to more g force than any other rollercoaster in any of the UK`s Theme Parks, pulling 5Gs at some points.
“This ride is something special. It’s highly rated by roller coaster fans, not just for its height and speed, but due to the fact that it’s a really intense ride with non-stop action for the whole two minutes. It’s a classic roller coaster, one of only two of its kind in the world, that’s guaranteed to leave a long-lasting impression.”
Andy Hine, MBE,
Chairman of the Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain
