A quick update today from our huge postcard collection, with three from Pleasurewood Hills showcasing a number of the park’s former attractions. Each features the park mascot, Woody Bear very prominently.
The character of Woody Bear was created by Keith Sparks (who was also instrumental in the creation of rides including Chessington’s Bubbleworks and Alton Towers’ Haunted House). For more information about Keith Sparks and his vast contribution to the industry, visit our friends at the British Theme Park Archive.
Note: Our fab fans on our Facebook page confirmed our suspicions that the Log Flume is in fact not the one at Pleasurewood, but is in fact a redressed Loggers Leap at Thorpe Park, in an image taken before the Pleasurewood ride was constructed.
