Merrie England

This area was originally called the Ingestre Centre, and held an aquarium, several specialist shops, and the Circus Hassani. Over the years as more attractions were added, and the Log Flume was installed, the area had a name change to AquaLand.

The area stayed like this for several years, with the Tea Cups, Grand Canyon Rapids, and the Swan Boats being added, until 1992, when the area on the opposite side of the woods that housed Thunder Looper was made into a newly themed area. Thunder Valley needed much better access, and thus Merrie England, Katanga Canyon, Gloomy Wood and Thunder Valley were created.

The Merrie England area is now more of a lounging area than a full on action area, with plenty of places to eat, drink and relax for a while.

It is generally accepted that soon, Merrie England may be rethemed, possibly in a continental theme.
