Margate: Dreamland opens two new thrill rides

By Katie Davis

Dreamland visitors were treated to the arrival of two new rides at the weekend.

Just in time for the summer holidays, the park opened its latest installments - the Pendulum and Pinball X.

The Pendulum echoes the dynamics of the popular Mary Rose ride which many enjoyed at Dreamland in the 1990s.

The ride's gondola has capacity for 16 people at a time, with a half moon configuration allowing a family of four to ride in the same row.

Meanwhile, the Pinball X is a newly reimagined ride similar to the Magic Mouse.

As part of the new ride line-up, family rides Up, Up and Away and Soaring Seagulls have already opened to the public.

More rides are set to be opened, with the Dreamland Drop Tower being tested ready for the holidays.

Steve Gotkine, chief operating officer at Dreamland, said: “These two new rides have delighted visitors so far.

"Dreamland has a packed line-up of new ride openings, entertainment and festival fun planned for the summer.
"With a rich variety of music, circus, outdoor cinema, favourite character appearances, crazy golf and even a dog show coming up, we will give people a reason to visit time and time again!”
