New for 1983 was the Dragon Rollercoaster, which eventually became known as the Beastie. It was also the opening year of the Vintage Cars, on their original site which was situated where The Smiler now stands. The other big new attraction was the International Circus, which performed in the big top in the Ingestre Centre. It was also the last year the park referred to its three main areas as the Springfield, Talbot and Ingestre Centres.
