Pleasureland ‘doesn’t have’ Knightmare rollercoaster

Knightmare rollercoaster at Camelot

Southport Pleasureland has denied having the former Knightmare rollercoaster, despite reports of its presence at the site.

Sightings of the ride’s trains have been reported as being stored at the park, with them purportedly visible from the car parking areas.

Pleasureland responded to a Ride Rater query on Twitter over how long it would be until the rollercoaster was available to ride.

A park reply read: “You won’t be riding it at Pleasureland, we don’t have it and yet the rumours continue.”

The Schwarzkopf and Zierer-designed rollercoaster was stationed at the now defunct Camelot theme park between 2007 and 2012.

A model of the ride appeared to be unveiled by Pleasureland owner Norman Wallis in 2015, when he presented plans for the park’s expansion.
