PHASE ONE Works begin January 2010, due for completion Spring/Summer 2011 Cost of £12 million Restore facade of Cinema, plus restaurant and lower ground floor Protect remainder of Cinema building from deterioration Rebuild Scenic Railway and build worlds first heritage amusement park, utilising rides already rescued from across the UK Scheme to occupy a minimum of 50% of the whole site
Plans for the Heritage Amusement Park, drawn up by Levitt Bernstein architects working with amusement park designer Jean-Marc Toussaint.
Early Dreamland buildings were modernist in style. Our buildings echo these streamlined designs.
THE MAIN PLAZA The world-famous Scenic Railway is the centrepiece of the park, here alongside gallopers and children s rides. A body of water will run along the Scenic, with a deck allowing visitors to get up close to the ride. The Cableway gives a bird s eye view of Marine Terrace and the sands.
SCENIC RAILWAY STATION The Scenic Railway station follows the parks modernist styling. It features a large fin, reminiscent of the cinema tower. The Helter Skelter is designed to feel like a lighthouse at the end of the pier.
WILD MOUSE & WHEEL Another streamlined building, here a food and drink kiosk. This style works with modern materials, such as the metal of the Wheel, but also sits happily with the wooden structure of the Mouse. Each ride will be introduced by fact boards in the queue lines, including historical information, technical details and old photos.
RIVER CAVES & WATER CHUTE The entrance to the River Caves is an homage to the great Scenic rides of the 1920s, one of which at Coney Islands Dreamland was called Dragons Gorge. These rides form the south-west corner of the park. They maximise the available space by sharing hydraulics and maintenance space, plus providing the parks office space.
INSIDE THE RIVER CAVES The theming draws inspiration from the listed 19 th -century Menagerie Cages on Dreamland. This ride will be a whimsical journey around the world searching for fantastic mythical dream creatures which will populate the cages of our Menagerie of the Weird.
THE CINEMA BUILDING Facade restored to create a landmark building at the Western end of Margates Golden Mile. Lower ground floor providing a grand entrance to the amusement park. Refurbished restaurant. Remainder of building, including the unique Compton-Noterman theatre organ, protected from deterioration.
