Re: Oakwood 2014

A rapids ride wouldn't be a stand out ride for the park. An Invert is a nice idea but I'd rather the extra woody as it is oakwood by name

Oakwood 2014

My question is after buying so many second hand rides this year and creating never land. Will they now incorporate a true thrill ride to bring in the older guests again?. It's meant to be a five year investment.  I'm just hoping its not completely family. they have a woody and an euro fighter b...

oakwoods lack of new attractions and cheesy dive show

Its now midway through the year of 2012 and still no hype or news of a new attraction at the park.. fair enough painting it and stuff. I believe the park has lost its way, it had a steady growth leading up to speed and to be honest has never improved on it, now visitor numbers have dropped rather th...

Re: Official Oakwood Thread!

its probably a new take on a corkscrew coaster they wouldnt think outside the box.
but why would everyone say a corksrew other parks are removing them now for updated coasters.
it makes no sence to me.

Re: 2012: New Attractions

It could be the robot arm system to throw you off the walls towards the theming with a bility to twist they would take the same space as the drop tower but the machinery would also be under the floor and i doubt the harry potter theme park still have exclusive rights cow the park has launched their ...

Re: Oakwood: general discussion 2011

Re: Interesting Wardley Sightings

If they made a ride like this I would be dissapointed because they already have a soaker ride. They need a ride that has jets that can be turned off. The concept is a coaster so the all year round aspect of a ride like this would be useless. They need a rapids river that could be a splashdown and st...

Re: Oakwood's "Hydro" becomes "Drenched"

its like oblivian with a wave but im convinced the old boats were better.
another question is the rebrand a new way of drawing atention to a new restraint because recent ones stop most people from riding it and the procedure is very slow

Re: Thirteen: One Year On

understanding the ride was not for us, it is not world class for its target the younger ones and hopefully when sw7 turns up the true theming will be there with the trees tight to the track

Re: Oakwood's "Hydro" becomes "Drenched"

You say that. When you see the wave you'll be the first running to it. Especially when you've already rode half the park by 10:30.

Re: Oakwood's "Hydro" becomes "Drenched"

i now think that hydro has a new ride system and theres a new flat ride in the park. doubt the sponsership but drenched should have a good theme aswell. got to be a new boat design and a heavier boat to make the turn with half a load. if it doesnt then all they got is a less effective name and a few...

Id like to start this topic by either taking existing rides and adding or improving forces or just increasong speed or height. To start the concept ive seen after running a search of coaters is to see prototype coasters against the next one after. I looked at perilouse plunge against hydro first and...

Re: Official Oakwood Thread!

thats what i thought ---- Post Info Added ---- after some time thinking i have thought what was the reason for oakwood going weak. hydro accident. do you remember the train ever having to be 3/4 full to make it round the track or it having to be modified so that the water doesn't hit the bridge as h...

Re: GCI woodie for China: best coaster ever built?

yes, agreed but im saying that we have one.
I wonder how the air time on the heavily banked turn is going to be,
it looks like a genius design steel wouldnt create that kind of instablity and the sharp turn i bet that will rock like mad good thing its hidden.
