Camilla Queen of Speed

In the News

For one day only, Rita has had a re-brand, to celebrate Prince Charles' marriage to Camilla Parker-Bowles.

The ride's trains and entrance sign were altered in the PR Stunt, and a special TV advert was also made to be broadcast on the day.

"Camilla may not be Queen of England yet, so we thought she might like to take over from Rita and be 'Queen of Speed', just for her wedding day!", said a spokesperson for the park.

Here are some screen-grabs of the altered TV advert:
