The Scenic Railway

With the current situation of this ride and Dreamland under threat of closure it's hard to be unbiased when reviewing this ride. It's very tempting to go over the top in praising it.

 

One of the most important things about this ride is the history. It's Britain's oldest roller coaster, and is a monument to the time the working people of Britain gained more spending power, and more travelling options, and a time when Britain's unique seaside resort culture first developed. That's why I think it's highly important this ride is preserved for future generations.

Another reason is that it's not a bad ride either, history or no history. One of less than 10 scenic railway wooden roller coasters left in the world. It may not quite be of the level of some of the more modern up to date rides, but it's still a fun and enjoyable family ride.
