Dreamland gets set to reopen park for weekends and school holidays


Dreamland is getting set to reopen its park for the May half term.

The site will be open for school holidays and weekends from next Sunday (May 29).

Rides on offer will include the Waltzer, Whirl Around and Gallopers, alongside last year’s addition – The Ghost Train.

The Dodgem Track with its superfast cars makes a return, alongside Chair-O-Plane and Hurricane Jets, whilst younger riders can enjoy The Austin Cars and Double Decker.

New for 2022 will be the restored vintage Funny Mirrors. The Helter Skelter will also be open.

There will also be new interactive installations, created by local artists and the Roller Disco and retro arcade will also reopen.

The other rides on site are the Scenic Railway, Beehive Coaster, Big Wheel (due to open later this year) , Tina Turner’s Head and Gallopers.

Rides no longer on offer include the Dreamcatcher, Jumping Star, Pendulum, Air Race, Up Up and Away, Soaring Seagulls and Pinball X

The park is free to enter and rides are operated on a pay-per-ride basis.

Food on offer this year comes from street traders including Rad Burger, Ocean’s Fish N Fries Seafood Bar and pizza from Ò Vesú.

The Roller Café will be serving dishes courtesy of the team at Fond Coffee and the Cinque Ports will be open with the folks from International Wrap Artists at the helm.

  1. How can this business be sustainable ? Free to enter. Pay per ride with next to no rides. Rubbish food that is quadruple the price of everything similar locally??

    • A reasonable question that deserves an answer.

      No business can survive by purely opening on weekends and school holidays – and only then for only four months of the year.

      Have new financial backers been found since the demise of Arrowgrass ?

      How much longer will this fiasco continue before the application for housing on the site is re-submitted ?

  2. It’s being intentionally run into the ground! Anyone can see that! Run it on a shoestring. Run it badly. Make it fail. Land bank it. Build on it.

    They’re finishing the legacy Jimmy Godden started, enabled by our corrupt overlords at TDC.
