Blackpool announce new ride details
« on: September 30, 2016, 08:36:14 AM »
well finally all the speculation what will be built at bpb is over after they announced that a double launched Mack coaster will be the new ride,in a British first, the park says a double launch function will see thrill seekers propelled forward at high speed at the start of the ride and again at a second point mid-way through their journey,Construction 2018 will reach heights of 88.5ft with drops of up to 82ft. It will interact with five other Blackpool Pleasure Beach rides including the iconic Big One, Steeplechase, Big Dipper, Pleasure Beach Express and the Grand Prix.Blackpool Pleasure Beach's Managing Director, Amanda Thompson OBE, adds: "Construction 2018 follows in the long tradition we have at Blackpool Pleasure Beach of investing in fantastic rides and bringing first of their kind rollercoasters to the UK. Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the world's most ride intensive amusement park, is home to the UK's first looping coaster, Revolution, and, at the time it was built, the world's tallest and fastest rollercoaster, The Big One, plus many more thrilling rides. I'm delighted to be able to continue this tradition and bring such a thrilling ride to the UK." :thumbup: :thumbup:

The new coaster (A Mack Mega Lite) will be a fantastic addition to the park. I'm really looking forward to this.
Here is a video of what we can expect.
