“Unlimited Fastrack That Isn’t Unlimited!?”

There were many things that made Oakwood a let down for us:

❌ We purchased Unlimited Fastrack, but when we tried to use it more than once on Megafobia, I got told to leave and wait 10 minutes before coming back on (so not really Unlimited!)

❌ The toilets were so disgusting that none of us were prepared to use them.

❌ We were paying nearly £10 for a burger meal deal that was disgusting.

There are very few upsides with Oakwood, the only ones being that they have some interesting rides and the fireworks were good.

We are in no rush to return to Oakwood Theme Park especially given the location, it’s literally miles from anywhere. The place looked really tired and dated & there were rides not working including the drop tower and the James and the Giant Peach ride broke down 4 times while we were there.

Save your money and go visit Paultons Theme Park in Southampton, just our humble opinion but it’s far better.

Thank you for your costructive feedback. In regards to the Unlimited Fast Pass Ticket the ticket can be used constantly we only advise waiting for a few moments to make it fair on all of our other guest. I have passed on your feedback to our new cleaning team for the season, we do have several amenities across the park with a full time cleaning team in operation.
This season we have introduced a new restaurant called 'The Haunt' where we will be serving delicious and popular pizzas. Inside the Oaktree Restaurant we will continue to serve a very popular variety of hot and cold baguettes.
The Fireworks and Afterdark nights have always been a major sucess for Oakwood Theme Park for all of our guest. We will be running several Theme days over the season and we will be updating all of the information on the Website and across Social Media we hope your return visit will be a great day for you to remember. We do over several fantastic offers with up to 30% off making us one of the cheapest Theme Parks in the UK.

Many Thanks

The rides were good, I have heard speculation regarding Bounce regarding a closure of the ride. Will it be closed in the future? all rides are maintained very well. But will still recommend oakwood theme park as a great family day out. But need more info about Bounce.

Good afternoon Coby

I am afraid the rumours are true inregards to Bounce getting decommisioned. This year we welcome 'The Creapy Crawler' Rollercoaster along with 'The Haunt' Restaurant which will be serving delicious pizzas.
Thank you for getting in touch we hope to see you at Oakwood Theme Park again very soon we do open on Monday 9th April.

Many thanks

Don't bother if I had to pay for tickets I would have be really disappointed. When we got there at 11.55 we were told the train had stopped running, but was advertised till 12!! So our toddler was disappointed. Then got a list of fright shows got to one at 14.45 advertising till 15.00 closed as they needed the que to go down as the next one was opening at15.00. Only 4 rides open for under 2 but was told by staff we could go in the soft ball play area !! Which was unsupervised and big kids in the very small under 3 area !!! 2 teenagers with us who were not impressed. As it's one of Wales largest attractions it's shabby needs a lot off money spending on it to bring it up to England theme park attractions a lot of money for nothing. Thank you to the wave for the tickets but wouldn't be going back soon.

The rides that are there are pretty good but there’s nothing that exceptional here. Rides I would recommend are: speed,megafobia and drench. Although if you’re planning on riding drench I’d DEFINITELY take a change of close as you do get drenched. Megafobia is a great ride for everyone, slightly scary for younger children as there is a big drop but it’s a great thrill but without being too scary. Speed is practically the only ride there for thrill seekers with a nearly vertical drop and one loop. Oakwood is more of a day out for younger children rather than thrill seeking adrenaline junkies. I would recommend tree tops for younger children as it’s quite good for children who want to ride a gentle rollercoaster.

Nice park with plenty of rides for all ages. The food was a small bit expensive and one of the rides broke down while we were on it but apart from that the kids had a great day.
Have been here twice once when it was sunny and once when cloudy - the good weather definitely adds an extra level to the enjoyment.
Kids had a great time.
