Loch Ness Monster: The Legend Lives On

The world’s first and now only remaining interlocking roller coaster, the legendary Loch Ness Monster, recently resurfaced following a full restoration for her 46th Anniversary. In addition to 900 feet of "Nessie's" signature steel track being replaced, riders will encounter new sights, sounds and surprises during their journey through the Scottish terrain. On Loch Ness Monster: The Legend lives On, the adventure begins with a newly themed entrance and ride platform. Then, the quest continues during the lift hill climb, guided by an all-new soundtrack created just for Loch Ness Monster. While braving the first drop, guests catch a glimpse of something monstrous lurking under the water before coming face-to-face with the monster in a shadowy cave lair.
