History

Sky Scream art.jpg

The ride was manufactured for a Chinese park, but after suffering delays, it was sent to Holiday Park instead, who had also ordered a new roller coaster.[2] It was manufactured in the United States, with most of the ride arriving at the park during January 2014.[3]

On 5 March 2014, the train arrived on site.[4] Sky Scream opened on 12 April 2014.

Upon opening, the ride had no theme. For the 2015 season, the buildings surrounding the ride were styled in a zombie theme. The ride's queue was also themed with the addition of some spooky theming elements.
