The BIG Sheep is home to North Devon’s biggest, highest and fastest roller coaster. At 400m long and 13m high Rampage* thrills riders with high speed twists, turns and drops. It’s the South West’s LARGEST family ride!

Thrillseekers of all ages will love The Rampage, Devon’s largest roller coaster!  This popular attraction ride has lots of twists and turns, ups and downs, and you even get to go around twice.

Check out the spectacular view of Swan Lake from the top and remember to keep smiling for our coaster camera so you can take the perfect souvenir home with you.

*Children over 90cm in height and over four years old can ride the rollercoaster when accompanied by an adult. We have a no single child rider policy on Rampage, so children aged between seven (or over 1.2 metres tall) and 16 must ride with another child or an adult.

This is a child’s ride with a difference. Fun for the little ones and relaxing for the older ones. Spot the nursery rhyme characters on your way around the track and keep an eye out for the ducklings and our family of resident geese!

How many times can you say you rode a swan?

Only in Devon can you take a well earned break and have a leisurely pedal in our elegant Swan Pedalos. Gently move along with our curious ducks and for all the keen gardeners out there, look out for the luscious Lilies, Canadian Pool Weed, Gunnera, Reed Mace or Papyrus. A perfect family ride!
