BUCKLE UP FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE.

WITH five coasters on the coast, Pleasureland is riding high. Explore King Solomon's Mines, a classic 'woodie' rollercoaster, which has joined its big brother The Cyclone. It complements our three 'steelie' coasters, TRAUMAtizer, The Wild Cat and The Big Apple kiddie coaster. And for good food, bowling and state-of-the-art games visit the Casablanca Family Entertainment Centre.

TRAUMAtizer is the tallest, fastest suspended coaster in the UK. The ride is the first of its kind in the UK and flies thrillseekers through five terrifying loops and rolls at speeds of up to 85km an hour, pulling up to 4.5 +G! TRAUMAtizer's 2,200ft track suspends eight seats for 16 riders sitting two abreast, so for the first time in the UK, both riders get a breathtaking view. That's if your eyes are open.

Latest new attractions for 2005 include the Lost Dinosaurs Of The Sahara at the famous traditional River Caves. Sail through ancient lands past the terrifying T Rex and through the ribcage of a dinosaur. Plus there's the new Desert Rescue family ride and Sandstorm centrifugal ride. But that's not all.

Try the Lucozade Energy Space Shot where 12 riders are catapulted 150ft into the air at 80mph, pulling four positive G on the way up and one negative G on the way down. It's like being ejected from a fighter plane.2005 OPENING TIMES & DATES
