Blackpool Pleasure Beach, home to the UK’s first looping coasted Revolution, has confirmed it will build a new rollercoaster costing £16.25m.
Amanda Thompson, Managing Director at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said: “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. I’m delighted to be able to continue this tradition.”
It’s the first of its kind in the UK, with a double-launch, an advanced technology that gives the rollercoaster two powerful thrusts of acceleration during the ride.
The two and a half minute experience will have thrill seekers reaching heights of 88ft, with drops of up to 82ft. Riders are set to experience the same G force as felt by the driver of a Formula 1 car.
Mack Rides in Germany are manufacturing the ride, utilising state-of-the-art engineering processes, such as laser beam technology.
The rollercoaster will open in Blackpool in Spring 2018, but if you cannot wait until then, experience it virtually here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bL6mxg_tzR0.
