Knightmare was a steel roller coaster located at Camelot Theme Park in Chorley, Lancashire, England, UK. It opened in 2007 and closed with the park on 2 September 2012. It was formerly located at Kobe Portopialand in Japan under the names of BMRX and Bavarian Mountain Railroad from 1987 to 2006. For years after Camelot's closure, the majority of ride still stood abandoned at Camelot, however some sections of track and a train had been delivered to Southport Pleasureland. In July 2017, sections of track were seen at Southport Pleasureland. The ride was finally seen being dismantled in February 2020.[1]



Knightmare was similar to Lisebergbanan at Liseberg and Jetline at Gröna Lund, with the latter having the same layout, apart from modifications made later on.
