And the turreted dark ride to the right, is the Ghost Train ride?

Just checking here, thanks. :wink: I miss Mousie. <sad>


The space by the big box was were trauma towers was I think but yes the big box is alice in wonderland. The mouse was the other space next to the ghost train and behind the stalls.

^ Ah, I got it now. Thanks! :smile:

By the way - was Trauma Towers where the indoor Tagada was? I remember riding it for the first time, in 2007,
and had no idea what it was, since it was dark, indoors, and the ride itself was freeky. But enjoyable, too.

^Yep, it was. I don't remember the theming too clearly but I remember being quite impressed with the ride overall. I think because it was a ride I hadn't heard a single thing about compared to the others before I went and had no idea a tagada was even inside.

^ It's sad to see COASTERS restaurant closed and vacant, ready for the tear down and the new hotel construction. :sad:

That was the first place the first TPR UK Tour (2006) went to for a group meal at BPB, during the tour. I think it was mostly burgers for everybody, heh. It was a great place to eat in, with lots of stuff from "Blackpool of the Past", on it's walls etc. And jukebox music, too! very cool place to eat, it was. :smile:

And the Monorail was working then, too! I remember taking a ride on it, traveling a whole circuit, which included stopping at that now defunct station.

The train does look really strange without the nose car shell

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

[token 'it looks really slow/fast' comment that testing videos always get]

Seriously though I am really looking forward to this, I love how it threads its way through all the existing coasters, it should offer so many great fly-bys whether you're on Icon or any of the coasters it interacts with. I hope they don't put nets under this section.
