It might have been the plans for it, I thought the ride itself was sold for scrap metal.

The model in the article is Camelot's actual model of Knightmare, used in the coaster's first press announcement complete with the infamous medieval plug socket in the background.

It makes sense as Southport have hoovered up lots of Camelot including Excalibur 2 and the diesel powered Dragon Coaster, I really hope it comes through as it would be nice to see Knightmare operating rather than rusting even more, I just hope they paint it.

Interesting fact Camelot never owned the coaster they operated it on behalf of IE Park who were trying to sell it and thought they'd have more chance of finding a buyer if it was operating rather than in storage.

Camelot was on hidden Britain by drones on channel 4 last night quite interesting interviews with owner and old employees. Can probably get in on catch up

I watched this too. It was really interesting to watch. I don’t know when it was filmed but gave some lovely views of Knightmare as well!

Thanks for the heads up about this, I used to visit Camelot with my family when I was young as we lived fairly locally, and I have fond memories of it.
Although the two standout memories I have are bailing from the queue line for one of the rides after hearing people's screams and being attacked by wasps while picnicking in the stands during the jousting show :lol
Sad to see the disrepair it has fallen into , but I found the segment fascinating.
Will give the rest of the show a watch now too as I was previously unaware of it.
