Scores of people have been queuing outside the park in Margate to attend the new and improved attraction.Read the full story ›
Phase one of the opening includes 17 restored rides, as well as the roller disco, pleasure gardens, restaurants, food stalls, arcades and amusements from the golden age of the British seaside.
This video shows Dreamland in Margate, back in 1968. Do you remember going on these rides?
The owners say visitors to the restored theme park will be able to enjoy modern rides without losing any of the good old-fashioned fun of the fair.
As Dreamland reopens its door again, we have been speaking to Graham White, who shot some video of the amusement park in the 1960s, when he visited Margate with his wife and daughter.
The long-awaited reopening of the legendary amusement park Dreamland takes place today. A delay means that the scenic railway will not be part of the restored and recreated rides open on its first day since the pleasure park closed almost a decade ago.
The countdown is on to the long-awaited re-opening of one of East Kent's biggest attractions at the end of this week.
Years since its bustling heyday, Margate's Dreamland amusement park is finally set to see the public enjoying classic rides once again from this Friday.
But the main attraction - the listed Scenic Railway - is NOT going to be ready in time.
David Johns reports. Interviewees are Eddie Kemsley of Dreamland Trust, Technical Manager Andrew Gall and designer Wayne Hemingway.
The new scenic railway at Dreamland in Margate will not be ready for the amusement park's grand re-launch on June 19th.
Thanet council told ITV News Meridian that delays in preparing the carriages for the wooden rollercoaster were to blame - and that it was not possible to say when they would be ready.
It's a major blow for organisers who say that visitors with tickets for opening day will be offered the chance to come back again when the railway is working.
We speak to Thanet council leader Cllr Chris Wells and Eddie Kemsley, CEO of Dreamland.
