"The park was opened in 1995 by a company based in London and has since been through the hands of travelling showman Raymond Codona to its current owner, Henk Bembom’s Parkware Ltd. Bembom took over the park in 2002 and invested £5m during his first year there, followed by an additional £2m in the second. Bembom continued to bring new rides and attractions to the park each year, including another £2m worth of investment in 2007. In winter 2006, Parkware moved all their operations and ride stock to Loudoun from their previous storage buildings in Margate.

On 15 July 2007, 18-year-old ride operator Mark Blackwood died after falling 80 feet (24 m) from a roller coaster he was pushing, which had gotten stuck. He was taken to Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock for treatment but died there on Monday 16 July 2007. After a two-week trial, the jury found the park owners not guilty of failing to provide proper training and supervision at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Saturday 10 October 2009.

In September 2010 it was announced that the park had closed’ - From Wikipedia

Part of a short road trip with Bubblehead around Scotland. This was our first stop, we arrived and decided not to take the obvious route in due to cars inside the park, instead we opted for the more 'discrete' scramble blindly through an overgrown woods and emerged in the center of the park. We manged to snap most of the bigger rides and had a good wonder about before an old chap came and politely asked us to leave the property.



























Thanks for looking :p
