What are the main rides and attractions?

There is something for everyone, with a mix of adrenaline-fuelled and child-friendly rides. 

The star attraction is the traditional wooden rollercoaster, one of only two still standing in the UK, and it opened to visitors in 1932. 

There is no log flume anymore as this water ride has just been demolished, with the carriages auctioned off for charity.
