    Oakwood Leisure Park - Review

    Review by: Webmaster | Last update: 01-Oct-2003 | Based on 1 visit in 07/02

    Oakwood Leisure Park is an 80-acre park located in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The park calls itself "Coaster Country", which is kind of funny since they only have three coasters, of which only one is any good! The ride selection is very limited, but most of what they have is good, and they do have two world-class rides, as well as a few other unique attractions.

    Megafobia is regarded as one of the best wooden coasters of the last millennium, and Hydro became Europe's tallest and steepest water ride when it opened in June 2002. Some other rides include the Bobsleigh, Spooky 3D, and Plane Crazy, which is a classic Flying Scooters ride where you get to"fly" your own "plane". There are also several rides for kids as well as a play area.

    The park has a nice setting and is pleasantly landscaped throughout, but is generally unthemed, except one small area. The park is clean, and the staff seemed very friendly on my visit but were quite slow dispatching rides! Oakwood is in the middle of nowhere, but is very well sign-posted. Car parking is free, and the admission and food prices are reasonable.

    Overall, Oakwood is a nice small family park, and definitely worth a visit just to ride Megafobia and Hydro.

    Ideas for Improvements
  • Add more rides, particularly a good steel coaster.
    Oakwood Leisure Park Tips
  • If you intend on riding Vertigo (the skycoaster), book it early as it tends to fill up very quickly.
  • There is a train at the entrance of the park that takes you to the front of the park. However, I found it actually quicker to walk!
