Oakwood Theme Park will be opening its doors late into the night this summer as the park’s popular ‘After Dark’ events return for another year.
The Pembrokeshire theme park, which this year opened a brand new ride, will stay open until 10pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout August, as well as the bank holiday Monday, giving visitors the chance to celebrate the longer summer evenings by riding the park’s attractions as the sun sets.
After Dark will see Oakwood transform into a late-night extravaganza with live music, entertainment, fireworks, paint parties and illuminated rides lighting up the sky.
Thrill seekers will be able to experience Oakwood’s famous rides in the dark, including wooden rollercoaster Megafobia and adrenaline-filled coaster Speed, which will all be lit up for the late-night rides. Visitors will also have the chance to enjoy some of Oakwood’s most-loved water rides in the dark, as the iconic Drenched and speedy Snake River Falls will remain open throughout the night.
The events will feature live music from DJs, who will play a variety of songs guaranteed to get crowds singing along. Local dance groups, will also be taking to the stage this year to show off their moves and get visitors dancing.
Back by popular demand, the After Dark events will also see the return of Colourfest – a UV Paint Party which sees guests join together to dance and have fun whilst getting covered in brightly coloured paint. Guests wanting to take part in the paint party are advised to wear white tops which they don’t mind getting covered in UV paint.
The nights will come to a close with an exciting firework display, against the backdrop of the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside.
Located in the heart of the Pembrokeshire countryside, Oakwood Theme Park hosts a collection of rides and themed areas, both big and small, suitable for all ages. The attractions include four large thrill rides, and the latest addition to the park, Dizzy Disk, brand new this season.
