Apocalypse is a Vekoma sit-down roller coaster located at Lunapark in Languedoc-Roussillon, France. The ride was originally located at Spanish City in Whitley bay (1980-1983), before being moved to Flamingo Land in Yorkshire, England. At Flamingo Land it opened in 1983 and closed in 2011, to be dismantled and relocated to Lunapark.

When it was at Flamingo Land, the Corkscrew was part of the "Thunder Mountain Canyon" area which in later years became the "Plaza" area.

Design[edit]

Elements
  • Corkscrew has two trains, One of These can be stored on the transfer track when not in use.
  • The 'Bayerncurve' is a bit like a helix and is located after the second drop and before the double corkscrew.

Trains[edit]

Single train with 6 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train. When Corkscrew opened, it had two trains built by Arrow Dynamics, however only one is present at Lunapark.
