As for bounding about up there unsupported - truly mad.


What´s possible "inappropriate"? about posting that here? Honestly, I sometimes don´t understand this wannabe "correctness", especially as in some other threads you can just click and see deadly accidents...
And people will find it anywhere else, if they want, so I would just post it. If anything, it can only bring in some more awareness about this security concern...

^ Ive seen criticism of people who have taken unofficial footage on rides. Just in case this fell into the same category.

Does the park typically run Valhalla even on cooler days? I'll be there this Sunday and see the high is only 60 degrees.

Usually, yes, since most of it is indoors. It's sometimes broken down, but at the end of the day, it is an Intamin. Make sure you get some ponchos before you ride it though! ;D

Excellent! Usually I don't get ponchos but on a cooler day like this I was considering it.

(If anyone doesn't know the answer to this, I'm fine with that) . . . . what's the most popular coaster at BPB in terms of daily/annual ridership?

Hi. I'm planning on visiting Blackpool Pleasure Beach this weekend for the first time since I've moved into the UK and I was wondering what the crowds would be like at this time of year, because if it gets too crowded then I'll be more than happy to just wait out the Off Season and just directly go when Icon opens.

Any response would be highly appreciated.
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:

^ I went on a Sunday last month and lines as a whole weren't bad. I got a Speedy Pass since it was only $12 after staying at the Big Blue Hotel. Most things were 15 minutes or less. The two worst lines by far appeared to be the Big One (one train, so the line may have been almost an hour) and Nickelodeon Streak (couldn't see the line, but it looked to be at least over a half hour based on my Q bot times).
