Flamingo Lands New Roller Coaster Opening Date

Flamingo Land - Sik Heartline Rolls

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.

Special Effects

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.
