New Rita TV advert

Park News
Friday, 20th May 2005 By Dan Ketteringham

Today, Ug Land was closed as a new advert was being filmed for Rita - Queen of Speed.

It appears that the current campaign, which focuses more on the memories made at the park, has not attracted enough new visitors. Indeed, many members of the public simply don't know about Rita's existence.

So, today, guests were forced to turn away so that the film crew could shoot footage for the new advert. An actor was filmed riding the new coaster, and apparently there was no dialogue involved. The soundtrack will be recorded in a studio at a later date.
