The oldest surviving roller coaster in Britain, the Scenic Railway has been through a lot. However, there is hope that both the ride and the park that houses it will reopen in 2015. The Scenic Railway at Dreamland opened in 1920 and ran until 2005. After 2005 the ride fell into disrepair and was also the target of an arson attack in 2008.
