Defunct Roller Coasters (1)
|Former names:||MetroLand (1988 to 1995)|
|Location:||Located inside of the MetroCentre Shopping Complex. It was built as part of "Phase 3" of the MetroCentre development.|
|History:||The original development, together with the rest of the MetroCentre, was financed by the Church Commissioners of England, and construction work was carried out by contractors Rush & Tompkins. Construction and fitting out work in MetroLand cost approximately £20 million (€ 32.80 million). A further £1 million (€ 1.64 million) was invested by Funday Ltd. who took over the park in 1989.
In August 1996, Arlington Leisure took over the park and invested over £2 million (€ 3.28 million) updating and upgrading all the attractions, relaunching the site as The New MetroLand.
The park closed in early 2008 to be replaced by a new cinema as the old MetroCentre cinema was closed to make way for additional retail space.
