Dates: August 9th - 11th 2019
Location: Folly Farm, Oakwood & Heathertons, Pembrokeshire, UK
Three days of fun: Folly Farm on Friday 9th including the now legendary EFS (Exclusive Fair Session) where we get to ride all the vintage fair rides privately after the farm has closed with a dinner break in the middle! Oakwood on Saturday 10th, and after 2018's amazing ERS on Megafobia, you don't want to miss this, and finally Heathertons on Sunday 11th for the annual club Go-Kart race!
Friday 9th August - Folly Farm
Getting more popular each year, this wonderful park is situated just 5 miles from Oakwood and is a combination park, featuring a farm, a zoo and of interest to us, a vintage funfair featuring many classic rides such as Waltzers, Dodgems, Ghost Train, Skid, Caterpillar, Giant Wheel and loads more.
You can enter Folly Farm anytime from 10:30 where you can then enjoy the Park at your leisure before meeting in the vintage fun fair at 17:30 for a 2 hour exclusive ‘fair’ session (EFS). You will also enjoy an evening meal (basket meal: Fish & Chips, Sausage & Chips, Chicken & Chips or Veggie Burger and Chips all include a drink – advise below).
Saturday 10th August - Oakwood
The main event and of course it involves woooood! Starting at 09:00 you will enjoy a one hour exclusive ride session (ERS) on the UK’s number one woodie Megafobia. This is followed by an optional ‘TreeToppers’ takeover, then freetime, where you can explore the whole park including the new Dizzy Disk . After this you can stay in in the Park or maybe pop back to your B&B/camp site for a rest. Then following their massive firework display, at 22:00 our grand finale: Mega-GLOW-Mania!
A full, one hour, party ERS! And as it will be properly dark, please bring anything that flashes
or glows (nothing too big though – remember safety first) and we will then create our very own lightshow on Megafobia as it flies round the track to a special one hour party mix! A fabulous way to end a wonderful day and many members agree this is one of the best ERS’s you will ever experience! If you’ve never done one before you won’t want to miss it.
Sunday 11th August - Heatherton
Make your Mega-GLOW-Mania weekend even more fun by adding a visit to Heatherton (6 miles from Oakwood). On Sunday 11th August we have arranged a special deal at Heatherton, St Florence, Pembrokeshire. Just show your trip badge and/or membership card and get 10% off any token package.
