Hello all, my first post on this forum. Had to register on this forum after details of the new roller-coaster have been revealed
I've been visiting Blackpool Pleasure Beach on a regular basis since the early 1970's and in my opinion it is still the best park in the UK. The new coaster is just what the park needs and will hopefully bring in visitors from further afield.
Really looking forward to seeing the construction and can't wait to ride it. Glad to see that it doesn't look like any rides will have to be removed apart from the Go-Karts which is no great loss to be honest.

If you want to start with something less intense then head over to Nickelodeon Land and ride The Streak first. A fairly tame wooden family coaster. Best to ride that early anyway as it usually gets long queues on busy days when the park fills up. From there head over to Avalanche (the bobsled coaster) and that should have got you warmed nicely !!
Grand national rarely opens when the park does so you will not be able to ride that early on, assuming you get there when the park opens (and I would recommend getting there early to avoid queuing to get in the park).
Make sure you ride the Wild Mouse, my favourite coaster of all time, and if you go on Valhalla then buy a poncho. You will get drenched !!
