Scenic Railway at Dreamland Margate

The Scenic Railway is a wooden roller coaster located at the Dreamland Amusement Park in Margate, United Kingdom. It first opened in 1920 and is the oldest roller coaster in the UK.


The Queen of Dreamland, she reigns supreme over the beachfront and is the oldest rollercoaster in the UK.

Although she escaped major damage during World War II, a spate of terrible fires destroyed crucial parts of her structure in 1949, 1959 and again in 2008… along with the workshop, which – devastatingly – housed her original hand carved trains.

Overview ( Mathew Wells)

The devoted local community worked together with Sea Change and the Heritage Lottery Fund to raise funds for her stunning renovation. And now, Dreamland’s true sovereign has rised once again.
