So, they could be going head to head with an Alton Towers Secret Weapon with a big new ride (most likely a coaster), if they are teasing it already then it is likely to be something big.
Last time they went head to head like this we got Nemesis and The Pepsi Max Big One. Could the year Alton Towers finally build a woodie also be the year Blackpool finally build "The Bigger One"?

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Clearly Alton won by a huge margin there.

Alton definitely won in that Nemesis is the best of the 1994 coasters, although I think the Big One has been a big success for BPB and arguably carried the park for the last 20-or-so years. I don't think they would have got away with so few new rides since had it not been for the Big One. As for 2017 it's exciting that they're already starting to promote the ride! I hope this means it will be a large investment rather than the park overhyping a filler attraction.

BAYSIDE STATION!!!

Don't worry, I didn't forget Valhalla :) It's a really good ride but I don't think it is in the public consciousness like the Big One is :)

Blackpool could do with a decent launch coaster, also I would love it if Grand National got an RMC makeover. As RMC have just started making launches it could kill 2 birds with one stone. They could make it similar to Twisted Colossus, but with launched lifts like Lightning Rod.

While Nash could do with some re-tracking I don't think it needs RMC treatment.

A lot has been made about a launched coaster at Pleasure Beach over the years but I would be happy with just a really solid ride like an Intamin Mega-Lite.

I would absolutely love a megalite in the UK but blackpool don't have room for one unless it was a custom layout. I think most likely is either an RMC conversion, or Mack Launch.
