WE'VE GOT ANOTHER BUMPER WEEKEND OF LIVE MUSIC COMING UP, SO OUR PARK TIMINGS ARE A LITTLE DIFFERENT CHECK TIMES & PLAN YOUR VISIT

Celebrate A Scenic Summer!

Celebrate A Scenic Summer!

We’re getting set to celebrate National Roller Coaster Day on Tuesday 16th August 2022, shining a spotlight on our crowning glory, The Scenic Railway.

First opened in 1920, The Scenic Railway turns a whopping 102 years old this year and to honour this milestone, we will offer free rides on the Grade II* listed wooden wonder to the first 102 guests through the (aptly named) Scenic Gate at 11am on Tuesday morning!  (one ride per person, standard Dreamland T&C’s apply & normal ride restrictions apply including height restrictions)

In continuation of the celebrations and to commemorate this historic ride, we’ve also launched a competition to name the two Scenic trains, which since Dreamland re opened in 2017 have carried more than 400K thrill seekers.

Shane Guy, Head of Operations explains: ‘The Scenic has been our crowning glory since the 1920’s and just like Dreamland itself, she’s had a rich and vivid history with more twists and turns than – well, a roller coaster!  In honour of her turning 102 this year we’re offering fans the opportunity to name her trains. The two lucky winners will not only see their names on the trains, but they’ll also receive a commemorative piece of the Scenic Railway to keep forever.’

To enter name suggestions, just head to this page on our website and fill out the online form.  https://www.dreamland.co.uk/national-roller-coaster-day-2022/.There’s no limit to entry suggestions. The competition will close on Tuesday 30th August and winners will be chosen by an authorised Dreamland representative. Winners will be announced on Thursday 1st September 2022.

A highlight in coaster aficionados’ calendars, National Roller Coaster Day honours all the fun bringing, scream inducing, gum flashing rides that amusement and theme park fans have loved since the 1800’s, when the first vertical loop roller coaster was patented in the US.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Scenic Railway is a wooden roller coaster located at Dreamland Margate. It first opened in 1920 and is the oldest roller coaster in the UK. The ride is distinctive compared to modern-day roller coasters, as a brakeman is still required to travel with the train to control its speed, manually applying brakes when needed. It is also one of only eight scenic railways in the world, and the UK’s English Heritage granted the roller coaster Grade II listed status in 2002 and Grade II* listed status in 2011.
