Sik aka Inversion at Flamingo Land Resort in North Yorkshire was originally scheduled to open in 2020. Sadly Covid-19 delayed the construction of the ride with its opening date pushed back until summer 2022. The £18m Thrill Ride will feature 10 inversions.
Sik at Flamingo Land
Sik will have a similar layout to Colossus at Thorpe Park in Surrey which also features 10 inversions, both these rides are manufactured by Intamin. One of the engineers working on Flamingo Lands new ride previously worked on the construction of Colossus.

When will it open?
The new paint colours have been applied and the ride is nearing completion. It has been confirmed by the park that Flamingo Land’s new ride will be opening Saturday 2nd July 2022 in readiness for the summer school holidays.
Testing has now started on the new ride but it was not a great start for the test dummies as they fell out of the ride. Watch the video of the test run filmed by Go Theme Parks below.

The new attraction will feature special effects throughout the ride experience, including a waterfall, water cannons and fog effects created by liquid ice. Whilst queuing for Velocity guests will enjoy some amzing views of the new ride with it reflecting in the lake as it makes its way around the track. One of the best special effects will be the water cannons which will be used to chase the rollercoaster as it rounds the final bend.
The roller coaster is part of an £18m project that also features a station area compared to an “amazing night club” with an exclusive SikSilk boutique, combining both street fashion and on-trend music.

A great addition for Flamingo Land
Flamingo Lands new ride has been referred to as Inversion but on 30th May 2022 the park confirmed that the ride will be named ‘Sik’. The new ride will be a fantastic addition to the great lineup of roller coasters and attractions already on offer at the North Yorkshire Theme Park.
