Multi-Looping Roller Coaster
Like many other new attractions, Flamingo Lands new 10 inversion multi-looping roller coaster has experienced delays due to Covid 19. The new thrill ride is located on the former site of the Corkscrew which was removed in 2011. A number of small rides have been relocated from this section of the park in order to create the additional space needed for this development. The exciting new roller coaster will have a similar layout to Colossus at Thorpe Park in Surrey which also features 10 inversions.
Scheduled to open in July 2022, Click Here to learn more about this amazing new addition to the park.
You can get some some great merchandise featuring the new ‘Sik’ roller coaster from Redbubble.
The new ride was manufactured by Intamin for Hopi Hari Theme Park in Brazil. The ride was never installed at the Brazilian Theme Park and was held in storage. You can view details of similar rides on Intamins official website or watch the video below which is a very similar model to the ride which has been constructed at Flamingo Land.
As anticipated in recent months the ride supports have been painted black and the track painted silver. Looking at the images on the park map the rides theming may incorporate the Union Jack with graphics adorning some of the building and the roller coasters front carriage.
It has been suggested that plans for the popular Theme Park, situated off the A169 Malton to Pickering road are likely to see the closure of ‘Mischief Mansion’ (formerly known as ‘Little Monsters Den of Mischief’). This is the final remaining Monster related attraction in this section of the Theme Park after Dracs Diner closed some time ago and ‘Exploratorium’ was replaced by ‘Peter Rabbit and Lily Bobtails Storytime’ for the 2018 season. Mischief Mansion gives guests the opportunity to join Flamingo Land Resort’s very own Little Monsters, Mummy, Drac and Yeti, and travel with them on a ghost train type ride through three scary worlds packed with family-friendly fun. In recent times the attraction has become a little worse for wear and rather than restoring it to its former glory it is possible that it may be replaced with a new virtual reality ride.
Dewars Hotel and Rooms
Continuing with the investments, Flamingo Land Ltd has acquired The Ashfield Country Manor for an undisclosed sum. The property is located directly across the road from the theme park entrance, in the village of Kirby Misperton. The Company have ambitious plans to re-brand and re-develop the site with the extensive refurbishment and remodelling of the building. Flamingo Land Ltd’s goal is perfection with top quality service paired with food from local suppliers and a totally unique, bespoke interior design.
Flamingo Land Coast
Flamingo Land is poised to venture into Scarborough, a popular North Yorkshire seaside resort located a short distance from the current Theme Park and Zoo. Flamingo Land Ltd are Scarborough Borough Council’s preferred bidder for the development of the former Futurist Theatre site. Plans have been revealed to potentially create a botanic garden and roller coaster on the site referred to as Flamingo Land Coast. The proposed development is based around three environments with subterranean, coastline and sky theme. In addition to a glass-roofed botanical garden and roller coaster, the plans also include a lighthouse structure and “Space Shot Tower”. The site, overlooking Scarborough’s South Bay, would also include an elevated sea view bar, restaurant and function space, walk-through aviary and a new town square.
Work is already underway on the Flamingo Land Coast site with the demolition of the Futurist Theatre.
It is not the first time that a roller coaster will have been sited here. Before the Futurist Theatre occupied the site, it was home to the Kiralphi brother’s Arcadia which first opened on the 18th of July 1903 where visitors could enjoy the thrills of the Mountain Railway and Fairy River.
£40 Million Center Parcs Style Attraction
In Scotland, Flamingo Land are the preferred bidder to develop a £40-million holiday resort on the banks of Loch Lomond, via its offshoot Iconic Leisure Developments. Plans for the resort include 105-holiday lodges, an apart-hotel, an education facility, a monorail, an indoor water park and a brewery. This development is still in the planning and consultation stages.
The original Iconic Leisure Developments website provided estimates that the development would cost £30 Million but a new website named ‘Lomond Banks‘ which details the revised proposals indicates that the cost of the development has increased by £10 Million to £40 Million.

The leisure resort would be situated in Balloch which sits on the shores of Loch Lomond, 25 miles north of Glasgow. The project’s objectives are to “deliver a characterful contemporary design with a sense of place appropriate to Balloch, Loch Lomond and the national park, structure the design around new pedestrian and cycle-friendly routes and spaces, provide a strong landscape framework for all elements of the site and develop a commercial mix of uses that will animate the site and maximise footfall”.
