Brean Leisure Park is an amusement park in the village of Brean, near Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, England.
Brean is the largest amusement park in South West England
covering 10 acres (4.0 ha). Open
from March to October every year, the leisure park has also been a
concert venue for artists such as DJ Casper, Peter Andre, Jason
Donovan and The Wurzels. Sky have filmed "Funfair Physics" for '
at the park. An episode of BBC TV series Casualty was
also filmed there in 2007.
In 2006 £1.2million was spent on new rides.
The park has several rides, some of which are described at the
Roller Coaster DataBase (RCDB):
Magic Mouse This ride is a spinning wild mouse ride. It
follows the normal spinning style track layout and is one of the
park's bigger rides. It was known as "crazy mouse" until the start
of the 2007 season.
Shockwave A ride constructed by Italian manufacturer
Pinfari that has a loop.
Xtreme The largest and tallest ride at the park.
XFactory This ride is very similar to the traditional
Miama Trip ride found within most mobile fun fairs, with the extra
added bonus of water jets that shoot water up at the riders when
they are in mid-air. The seats tilt downwards so riders get a
better view of the water and ground below.
Wipe Out This ride is the same as Vortex which is
located in Thorpe Park. The
ride swings riders left and right on the end of a large arm which
holds riders in a rotating gondola. It was voted scariest ride at
the park by Brainiac.
Hell Raiser a traditional matterhorn ride.
- Wild Water
Caterpillar Another Pinfari ride, which features a
standard layout for this model of ride.
Terror Castle A ghost train.
Sizzler A twister ride.
