Galaxi was a steel roller coaster located at Barry Island Pleasure Park in Barry Island, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, UK. It opened in 1974 as one of a number of replacements for the park's Scenic Railway, which had been scrapped.[1] It left the park at the end of the 1983 season, when John Collins relinquished his share in the park, leaving it in full control of brother Pat Collins. It was replaced in 1984 with a Zierer Flitzer roller coaster.
