Megafobia is a CCI wooden roller coaster located at Oakwood Theme Park, Pembrokeshire, Wales, United Kingdom. It was built in 1996 by CCI, who wanted a ride to showcase their company in Europe. Megafobia features a twister style layout. It is often ranked in the top 10 wooden roller coasters in the world.

Megafobia was the first white-knuckle attraction to be installed at the Oakwood Theme Park (then Oakwood Leisure Park) in West Wales and transformed the park's fortunes from a small family leisure park to a major UK theme park.

Awards
