ThemeParkWorldwide just posted a picture of Knightmare's train and brake run track at Southport Pleasureland, could this old coaster get new life or will it just be used for parts?



Knightmare was a Schwarzkopf coaster located at the now closed Camelot themepark.

This ride looked really fun; glad it's not dead.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

If i remember correctly, they did have plans to install both that and the Dragon diesel powered roller coaster. Glad part of those plans have been realized!

Quite possibly a relocation, I'm pretty sure I read that they were interested in bringing it over to Southport and renovating it!

Edit: Yes I remember reading that too skyscraper - we can't both be wrong ;P

It's great to see this ride get a new home! However I'm not sure we'll see it themed as well as it was when it was operating in Japan.

Someone over on CoasterForce said that they have indeed purchased the ride, for ??800,000, and it will be refurbished in Thronton, just outside of Blackpool.

To all those wanting Knightmare to be relocated, i have bad news. After 8 years of SBNO, the ride has started to be torn down and from the way they are demolishing it, it looks like this ride is scrap metal:

I mean, I'm not surprised, but this coaster has always caught my eye. Looked like one awesome Schwarzkopf. RIP :cry:
