Two new thrillseeker rides have opened at Dreamland

The Pendulum is open

Two more new rides opened at Dreamland at the weekend.

The latest installments are the Pendulum and Pinball X. They are among nine rides set to be open in time for the Summer holidays and join family rides Up, Up and Away and Soaring Seagulls  which have been open since half-term.

The Pendulum echoes the dynamics and excitement of the highly popular Mary Rose that saw visitors flock to Dreamland in the 1990s.

As the ride begins to swing, it also rotates getting longer and longer for a totally mind-boggling feeling as land, sea and sky fly overhead in circle after circle. The ride’s gondola has capacity for 16 people at a time, with an innovative ‘half moon’ configuration allowing a family of four to ride in the same row side-by-side.

Pinball X is a newly re-imagined ride similar to the Magic Mouse that drew crowds throughout 2017 at Dreamland.

A high impact coaster with family appeal, it is sure to thrill all generations and features an action-packed course of twists, turns and exciting drops. Half way through the ride, the four-passenger coaches spin and whirl with gravitational forces and inertia allowing each and every rider the chance to enjoy a different ride, time and time again.

More rides are being installed with the Dreamland Drop Tower currently being tested ready for the summer holidays.

Steve Gotkine, Chief Operating Officer at Dreamland, said: “A summer of thrills awaits at Dreamland, with a host of new rides opening for the all of the family. There’ll be something for everyone as well as a packed programme of festival fun including The Circus, crazy golf, a dog show and a rich variety of music and entertainment throughout the whole of the summer.”
