Speed: No Limits


Speed: No Limits is a roller coaster at Oakwood Theme Park, Pembrokeshire, UK. It is a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter and contains a 90° chain lift hill and a 97° first drop.

The ride was installed by Ride Entertainment Group, who handles all of Gerstlauer's operations in the Western Hemisphere.

The ride uses four trains, each consisting of two rows, each with four across seating and can carry eight people per train. The trains use standard Euro-Fighter over-the-shoulder restraints.

The ride begins with a left turn and then a 115 foot vertical 90° chain lift hill, this is followed by a 110 foot beyond vertical 97° first drop. Cars then reach a speed of 59 miles per hour at the base of this drop, pulling 4.5 G, cars then crest over an airtime hill, pulling -1.3 G.

This is followed by an overbanked turn at an angle of 110° and a vertical loop, cars then rise up into a set of brakes.

Cars then descend a small dip, into a heartline roll. The train then turns left with a slight incline then entering a double helix into the final brake run (which consists of magnetic brakes and fin brakes), the cars then turn right into the station.

The ride is painted orange with green supports and its lift hill and first drop tower can be seen from a distance away.

It is the tallest, fastest and steepest roller coaster in Wales. In 2013 due to a power cut, the ride stopped at the top of the 1st hill for 18-20 minutes
