Welsh Weekender 2024

It wouldn’t be a normal trips season without our annual visit down to the stunning Welsh countryside for our most social event of the calendar!!

You will notice that the date of our visit has moved to two weeks later than normal this year, we have a core team that run this trip and build all the infrastructure, they were unavailable for the ‘traditional’ weekend and so we decided to change the date.

We have a full day planned at Folly Farm, which is home to Europe’s largest undercover vintage funfair. We have organized a two-hour Exclusive Ride Session in the fantastic historic preserved fairground after the park has closed to the public on the Friday. The cost includes a full day at the park and ERS, but if you wish to add access to all the rides (including the outdoor rides) during the day this will only cost you an additional £8 per person.

As well as Folly Farm we will have a full day at Oakwood to enjoy on the Saturday, with a late evening ERS on Megafobia, also there will be another two ERSs that will be announced prior to the trip (Saturday and Sunday mornings); a couple of the favourites will be included. Last year we amazed with the work that had taken place on Megafobia, the $2m transformation including retracking and reprofiling of the ride had been a huge success, it is now back to its former glory and has also had a couple of additional elements added to make it even more amazing.

As normal we will work with the park to on some additional activities that will take place over the duration of the trip, and just as an example, last year we had a backstage tour and walk-back around Megafobia, a tour of Spooky 3d. Any activity like this is likely to be on the Thursday evening. On top of this there’ll be plenty of the usual stuff , including the amazing BBQ, the soup kitchen, late night bonfire and of course the quiz!

For those new to the Club, the “Welsh Weekender” is different from other trips because those who are willing to can camp within Oakwood itself. We create a full campsite (with toilets, water and lights) in the park within the shadow of Drenched. This means that you don’t have to seek out accommodation after a potentially long drive down.

To book please select the options below and add the basket. Camping options can be selected from the Oakwood option.
