Jason Maier wrote:(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?


I would guess Grand National because its got the most capacity and consistently has a queue. Big One would be it probably if it didn't run often due to the wind/runs with 1 train when its windy.

Looks fantastic! I am so relieved they didn't use that ugly green and orange in the concept video. This is such a great addition for Blackpool and the UK.

Whoa I was not expecting the track to be grey after the preview video. This is the exact attraction Blackpool needs. They needed a signature, reridable steel coaster.

Got to say all the promo things looked ok but the scale of this ride as it go's vertical is astonishing. looks so much better in real life so to speak.

Thanks for sharing!
