Dreamland Margate, a classic British amusement park, is set to re-open at the 19th of June! The park had its last year of operation in 2005. It has recently had a massive refurbishment of £18 million. Now, ten years after its closure, Dreamland will be operational again with 20 traditional rides.
One of these rides is the Scenic Railway. It opened in 1920, making it the oldest operating coaster in the UK once it re-opens. A new roller coaster opening in the park is Counter Culture Caterpillar, a Big Apple kiddie coaster. More rides will be added to the park as time goes on.
Tickets will cost around £15 for an adult, and around £13 for children (younger than 16 years old).
And that's a wrap! Fury 325 finished its first test run today during a Media Day preview at Carowinds. The giga coaster sailed with flying colors, roaring around the layout while hitting speeds of 95 MPH. The roller coaster opens to the public March 28th, but will feature a Season Passholder preview the night before on the 27th.

While the RMC coaster had previously been given a green light, the county commission announced an appeal of permission until more detailed plans can be provided by the zoo. More details can be found on the CF Forums.
While Rougarou will be the highlight of new additions to Cedar Point in 2015, the park announced new ride removals and relocations today during their Winter Chillout event. These moves come after Cedar Point's announcement that the Good Time Theatre will close, opening up speculation on plans for a 2016 roller coaster.
Rides to be relocated next year include Dodgems and Calypso, which will find a new home on the Wicked Twister Midway. Calypso will also receive a new theme, and be renamed the Tiki Twirl. The Turnpike Cars will be removed for 2015, creating a new open space for Cedar Point to work with for whatever is to come in 2016.
Cedar Point also showed off the new floorless trains to be installed on Rougarou, while also confirming softer, more comfortable restraints that will be added to Maverick this year.
