Ride: Project Ocean
Manufacturer: Unknown
Opening Date: UNKNOWN

All the latest news for a new attraction being planned for Forbidden Valley! Going by file names relating to the planning, it looks like it’s codenamed Project Ocean.

So far, we know the new attraction is planned to be where Funk N Fly was located and ia to be 18m high, infact it will also be at the footpath next to it aswell, meaning that a ‘tunnel’ would be built so you will wall under the attraction!

There is nothing given away yet on what the new attraction will be and its not easy to guess from the plans!
