Megafobia is a wooden roller coaster located at Oakwood Theme Park in Narberth, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK. It was built by Custom Coasters International, Inc. who wanted a ride to showcase their company in Europe. Megafobia has a twister-style layout.

Opened in 1996, Megafobia was the first major attraction to be installed at Oakwood Theme Park (then Oakwood Leisure Park) and it transformed the park's status from a small family country park to a major UK theme park.
