Pleasurewood Hills launches scariest ride in the UK


The new HoBs PiT ride, which cost over half a million pounds, has been developed by Pleasurewood Hills in conjunction with world renowned special effects expert Rob Ostir and voice actor Corey Burton. The pair, who usually work with theme parks in the USA such as Disney World and Universal Studios have been involved with movie blockbusters like 2012, Mars Attacks! and the Chronicles of Narnia, as well as most of Disney’s feature animations over the past two decades.

This collaboration has designed a ride – HoBs PiT – that is set to become one of the scariest indoor theme park attractions in the UK. It’s predicted that theme park enthusiasts will travel from across the UK to experience HoBs PiT. With over 2000 people having already signed up to the HoBs PiT mailing list via the rides own website

The management team at Pleasurewood Hills is not divulging much about the new ride at this stage, but they did let it slip that the ride is based on an old abandoned mine shaft and unexplained phenomena that were discovered during excavations at the park.  They also explained that this is not a ride for the faint hearted!

The new ride is part of the £3.5 million investment that Looping Group owners pledged to invest when they bought the park two years ago. HoBs PiT is one of four new rides to launch in the park’s 30th anniversary year.

Alexis Camelin, General Manager of Pleasurewood Hills said: “This ride is unique to the UK, it’s the first ‘dark ride’ to combine a ‘walk through’ and ‘seated’ scare experience with lots to scream about along the journey through an old mine shaft”.  He added: “The big question is, will you escape HoBs PiT”?
