Flight of the Giant Peach is a steel roller coaster currently under construction at Oakwood Theme Park in Wales.


Flight of the Giant Peach has blue track and light green supports. The ride is to be part of a James and the Giant Peach themed area, as theming and footers for trampolines have appeared in the area surrounding the coaster.


This ride was formerly located at M&D's Scotland's Theme Park in Motherwell, Scotland. While at M&D's, the coaster went under the names of Cobra, Express and Space Coaster. After the ride left M&D's in 2015, multiple rumours stated that the ride would go to Oakwood. These rumours were confirmed when the coaster was seen under construction at Oakwood. On 12 August 2016, the ride was confirmed to be part of a James and the Giant Peach area in Oakwood's summer leaflet. Oakwood later confirmed on their Facebook page that the coaster itself would be named Flight of the Giant Peach.


The coaster will be themed around the Roald Dahl novel James and the Giant Peach.
