Dark Forest

Down in the Dark Forest, the woodland is taking over with tree roots growing out of the ground and enveloping all that once stood in the area.

Two major attractions headline the Dark Forest: Rita - the former Queen of Speed - is a racing-themed launched rollercoaster, which feels slightly awkwardly placed within the forest theme. More in-keeping with the area is Th13teen, a family-friendly but horror themed rollercoaster at the far end of the forest.

Dark Forest is a long thin area, with the Skyride cable cars running high above the main path.

Alongside the rides, Dark Forest features a number of food outlets catering for a variety of tastes with bagettes, wraps and ice creams all on offer. More substantial meals are available from the Woodcutters Bar and Grill restaurant which sits just outside the entrance to the area.
