Blackpool Pleasure Beach director teases Project 2018

Amanda Thompson, Managing Director for the Lancashire based amusement park, has teased the new multi-million pound roller coaster ahead of its reveal tomorrow.

The as yet untitled roller coaster will intertwine with other nearby rides fifteen times, including The Big Dipper, The Big One and Steeplechase within the South side of the park.

Codenamed Construction MMXVIII, the ride will be manufactured by German company Mack Rides, who have provided rides before to BPB which are situated in Nickelodeon Land. The ride will feature multiple inversions and launch sections, which will propel riders through loops and an in-line twist.

This is set to be the first rollercoaster to be built at the park in 24 years – The Big One opened in 1994, and at the time was the world’s fastest and tallest ride of it’s type.
