The owner of Dreamland theme park in Margate has announced the attraction will reopen for three months.
Plans have been outlined for housing and retail on the site
The leisure park closed its doors in November 2003 for what everyone thought was the last time.
But owner, David Wallace, who took over the famous attraction last summer, has said he will open the park for three more months from 3 July.
Some of the rides have been removed by the former owner but among those up and running will be the Scenic Railway.
The ride is the UK's only listed rollercoaster and is the oldest in Britain.
The former owner of Dreamland, Jimmy Godden, announced last year he was to close the park with a view to selling the site.
But Mr Wallace took over and opened up the park last summer and for the autumn half-term.
Now rides are being refurbished and maintenance certificates obtained in readiness for the park's opening this summer.
Campaigners have been trying to save the park because it is seen as a vital part of the town.
A pressure group called Save Dreamland was set up to try and revive the attraction and prevent the site being turned over for housing.
