RCCGB Attend Annual Mega-Glow-Mania Trip
Dozens of the UKâ€™s most fanatical roller coaster descended on Oakwood Theme Park at the weekend (August 11thÂ â€“ 12th).
Members of the Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain visited the Pembrokeshire attraction for a special weekend of thrills including an after dark ride event known as Mega-Glow-Mania.
Described as a high-speed party, the event sees members donning glow in the dark costumes to enjoy an hourâ€™s rollercoaster ride complete with musical accompaniment after the sun has set.
Chairman of the RCCGB Andy Hine MBE, who has ridden well over 1,000 different roller coasters, said: â€œOakwood has been a permanent fixture on our trip calendar since Megafobia opened in 1996.Â
â€œThe UK has so few wooden coasters and Megafobia still remains one of the worldâ€™s best.Â It is fun from start to finish; you get on smiling and get off laughing!” he added.
Members of the Club were also able to ride Speed, during a private session and other activities included a baseball game with wooden coaster fans pitted against steel coaster fans.
With a top speed in excess of 75 kph and 25 metre drops towards a lake combined with unique crossovers the twister has attained legendary status among coaster fans worldwide.
