Dreamland today reveals details for a competition, which will see a lucky winner name one of the exciting new rides opening at the park this summer.
A modern take on the much-loved classic Enterprise ride, the ride looking for a name is an open-air thrill experience that transports riders sixty feet through the air at 25 miles per hour.
Seating 24 people, two per gondola, the ride will treat visitors to an awe-inspiring experience that transforms from the horizontal to the nearly vertical.
To be in with a chance to name this new ride, entrants need to come up with a name that is:
- Thrilling and bold
- A maximum of three words
- True to the spirit of Dreamland
The competition will be open from 9am on Friday 18th May until 11.59pm on Saturday 23rd June and can be entered here.
Entries are limited to one per person and judging will take place between Monday 25th June and Friday 29th June, by a panel of judges.
The winning entry will be announced by Wednesday 4th July and invited along to be among the first to experience the ride, along with up to nine friends on its opening weekend of 21st/22nd July.
Steve Gotkine, Chief Operating Officer at Dreamland comments: “This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to go down in Dreamland history! As a world-class attraction offering a festival feel for all the family, we’re looking for a name that reflects Dreamland’s unique spirit of quirky fun, with a twist of the unexpected and also gives a nod to the thrilling nature of the new ride.
