Yes, Amanda Thompson (head of blackpool) in an interview said "Amanda's own plans include a multi-million pound new ride, Although details are still under wraps, Which will launch in 2018."

According to the British investigators the drawing (Which i poster yesterday) corresponds to the marker points made this year on construction site

Reports that some kids broke in and operated Blue Flyer for half an hour in the middle of the night before being caught: http://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/news/crime/teens-4am-joyride-on-blackpool-pleasure-beach-rollercoaster-1-7975556#ixzz4CHknq6AD

I'm surprising they got it working at all.

It also highlights that BPB aren't locking down and shutting off at least some of their rides at night. The fact they were able to even switch it on is a little alarming.

I know Blue Flyer is a fairly low-tech ride, with it's manual braking system, but you would've hoped that the power and the lift controls were able to be locked off to prevent anything like this happening. If one of these kids had have been injured or even killed it would've been a very bad situation for BPB, regardless of whether or not the kid's should've been there or not.
