Oakwood Theme Park have chosen KD Theming Technologies to work with them on their new £4-million family attraction, which opens later this year.
It is known that the Pembrokeshire park is working with this UK-based company to help build a series of magical new ride experiences which include a pirate-theme log flume water ride, in which the flume will travel through a gigantic 12-metre-tall sculpted skull.
The KD Theming company have done previous work in various UK Theme Park’s including the theming for the Legoland Hotel in Windsor, the Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester and the SpongeBob Squarepants Splash Bash ride at Nickelodeon Land in Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Oakwood Theme Park Director, Dominic Jones, comments;
“We’re delighted that KD Theming Technologies agreed to help us create our magical new attraction. They’re reputation and attention to detail is second to none and, having had the opportunity to get a sneak preview of what they have created, I can’t wait for it to be unveiled to our visitors,”
At the moment the exact details of this new attraction is being kept a secret. However, it will be very London-based, with a taxi cab ride, street scene, Nelson’s Column, Big Ben and the Tower of London and other experiences including the pirate flume ride.
