Forbidden Valley

Located in an area right at the back of the park, Forbidden Valley is an intimidating space filled with distopian post-apocalyptic destruction.

At the heart of the area lies Nemesis, a rollercoaster representing a massive writhing creature that was discovered during routine excavations at the Towers. Contrasting with the darkness of the chained monster is Galactica at the far end of Forbidden Valley, an airy flying coaster that takes visitors on a trip travelling to distant worlds beyond our galaxy.

Supporting the two rollercoasters is The Blade, a swinging pirate ship cleverly themed to look like a massive cutting tool swishing through the sky. The Sky Ride's midpoint is also in Forbidden Valley, with a station allowing visitors to ride the cable cars either across the valley to Dark Forest or over to Towers Street and the park's main entrance.

Alongside several smaller food outlets, Rollercoaster Restaurant sits next to Galactica and serves a variety of higher-priced meals via mini-rollercoaster cars.
