Year Closed:



Slammer was a ride like no other, totally unique in the fact that its was last of its kind in the world for a fair number of years before the ride closed! The ride was a S&S Sky Swatter, taking 48 people up into the air and rotating you 360º at heights of over 105ft. Guarantied to leave your head in a spin the ride rotated you both forwards and backwards 3 times each way. With very minimal shoulder and lap restraints this ride is not for the final hearted. Due to ongoing issues over the years and what we expect was yet another big set back the ride was closed in 2017. Even though the ride was on the park map the ride never opened for the 2017 season.
