Oakwood set to launch Sleepy Hollow attractions

Oakwood logoOakwood theme park is expected to launch new attractions based on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow short story later this year.

‘The Headless Horseman’ and ‘The Tree of the Dead’ have also been registered as trademarks with the UK government’s Intellectual Property Office (IPO).

Both are characters featured in the 1820 short story, which was written by Washington Irving and features themes of a supernatural nature.

The book’s title has also been registered with the IPO, indicating that a concept or themed area could be unveiled by Oakwood.

The Welsh theme park this weekend opened for the 2014 season, with prices held at 2012 levels until 23 May, a date after which it is widely expected to launch its new attractions.

It is not yet clear whether the Legend of Sleepy Hollow attractions will be based exclusively on the original short story, or its various TV and cinema incarnations.

Oakwood has not yet officially announced details of its new additions for 2014, with no details of any ride types coming to the Welsh theme park being known at this stage.
