Area History
X-Sector was formally known as Fantasy World which was introduced in 1984 and was home to the Black Hole and Cine 2000. By 1986 the area featured a Pirate Ship and a Turbo Star ride, there was also the Alpine Bobsleigh, Vintage Cars and a miniature golf course.

The area remained pretty untouched until Graviton was introduced in 1992 to replace the Turbo Star, By 1993 Graviton had gone and the Astro Dancers were installed. In 1997 every attraction bar the Black Hole was removed in preparation for a world first roller coaster which was kept top secret.

In 1998 the area was renamed to what it is today and Oblivion entered the scene, bringing both the Energiser and Enterprise to the newly formed area. New food outlets were also opened with the introduction of the KFC & Pizza Hut 'Meltdown' restaurant. Rehydrator also opened offering snacks and drinks. The area remained untouched until Submission was installed in 2001, replacing the Energiser.

The Black Hole closed at the end of the 2005 season after serving the park for 17 years. Although the ride has been dismantled the tent remains as the park is unlikely to get planning permission to build another one.
