A more full and comprehensive history can be found on the blog post from the first visit in March 2013 here. Briefly the Camelot Theme Park opened some 30 years ago in 1983 and continued to operate seasonally until 2012 which was to be the Theme parks last year before finally closing its doors. The park has since lay abandoned while the majority of the ride are sold off to other amusement parks. Two of the remaining highlights are the Knightmare and Dragon Flyer roller-coasters.
Visited on this trip with Cowboy, Donna, AndyK and Kriegaffe9, we just popped out heads in briefly to see how things were coming along. Not much had changed that I wasn’t already aware of… the Pirate ship is now gone but the main 2 coasters remain. I finally got to see the mannequin grave yard which was something i’d wanted to photograph for a while so happy with that. All in all another good day out!
