Hornet's Nest (originally known as Chaos) was a Chaos ride from Chance.

History[edit | edit source]

The attraction opened in May 1998 at Southport Pleasureland. It operated until the owners at the time, who also owned Blackpool Pleasure Beach, closed the park after the 2006 season. It was purchased by Lightwater Valley who planned to reopened it in 2007. Due to technical problems, the opening was delayed, and the ride finally opened in spring 2008 under the name Hornet's Nest.[1] It only operated briefly before being closed for maintenance. It operated again in May 2009[2] After being closed again, in June the park announced that the ride would be removed.[3]
