Your ticket to Bugged Out In Dreamland includes unlimited fairground rides, so take a look at what’s on offer below and start planning what rides you’re going to hit. Don’t forget to check out the DJs though!

Dreamland boasts the UK’s oldest rollercoaster (don’t worry, its been totally refurbished and has been restored to its stunning grade II listed status)! It is the biggest ride in the park, and if you can take time out from getting down to The Martinez Brothers, we heartily recommend getting stuck in. There’s also a seaside staple in the Helter Skleter, so grab a coconut mat and get to the top, you can ride it as many times as you can get up the stairs.

The Dodgems are a Bugged Out favourite from our trips to the seaside, either ride solo or go shotgun with a friend in these 70s inspired cars. We’d tell you no head on collisions, but you know that anyway, right? Keep your eyes peeled for some of your favourite DJs soundtracking the mayhem. You can rest those weary dancing feet with a whirl round the Big Wheel. Standing at an impressive 35m tall, you can get views of the whole festival and more! You’ll find us in the queue for the sunset session.

You may also notice a six lane multi-bumping multi-coloured slide to the right of the rollercoaster, they’ve named it Born Slippy! Choose five mates to race against, climb the ladder to the top and launch yourselves down the 65m long slide and let gravity do the rest. All whilst shouting ‘lager lager lager’, obviously.

One for the non faint hearted among you, head to the back of the park and you’ll find the Mirror Maze. You’ll be able to find your way in, but there’s no guarantee you’ll find your way out. Search parties available at reception. As with all things in a Fairground, what goes up, must inevitably come down. So strap yourselves in and experience the rise and fall of Dreamland’s Jumping Tower, not recommended after an ice cream binge.

The iconic ride from Dreamland’s 80s hey day, The Enterprise stands tall in the centre of the park. Climb aboard the gondola, close the cage and keep those fingers crossed as The Enterprise spins you horizontal, vertical and in between as gravity holds you in place, another one to avoid post raving refuelling. If you haven’t reached your inverted fill of the day, then head over to Top Spin. This 18m high spinning, whirling and lifting ride teases you with a great view of the festival, until you begin to spin forwards, backwards and upside down!

Have you never been stuck to a wall by centrifugal force whilst the floor disappears from beneath you? Where have you been! Get first in line for Rotor come September, as this classic 80s ride spins quicker and quicker until its just you, the wall and no floor. 

There’s also a Games Room! Featuring your favourite arcade classics, from vintage Star Wars and 80s Hair Metal pinball machines, to the inevitable lost afternoon crane grabbing games. You can also test your skills on co-op shoot ‘em ups and strength tests!

Plus The Kiss Me Quick, Cyclone Twist, Hurricane Jets, Monotopia, Swing Boats, Jumping Pirate Boats and the Speedway.
