Odyssey (formerly Jubilee Odyssey) is a steel inverted roller coaster located at Fantasy Island in Ingoldmells, Lincolnshire, England, UK.

Odyssey is one of two custom Vekoma SLC roller coasters. However it is the only SLC to feature unique inversions and a completely different track layout.

History[edit | edit source]

The first details for this roller coaster were revealed in 2000. It was planned to be the tallest inverted roller coaster at a height of 265 feet tall with a 200 foot tall vertical loop, which would have been the highest inversion.[1] The plans were reduced in scale, with the final coaster being 167 feet tall.

It originally opened as the Jubilee Odyssey in 2002 to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. For 2014 this was dropped and the roller coaster is now called Odyssey. For the 2016 season, the colour scheme was changed from red track with white supports to yellow track with slate grey supports.
