Hello folks, first post on this forum. I am going to Blackpool soon and I am a bit of a coaster chicken. Can anyone recommend what to ride first, then work my way up to the more intense rides? If I get to them! Many thanks. Dro.

Hi and welcome!
If you dont mind being shaken about a bit, I think I would start with the two old woodies. Grand National and Big Dipper.
Be ready for a rough ride on both, but there are no inversions for you to worry about.
If you dont fancy those first, then start with one of the scenic rides like The River Caves or Wallace and Gromitt
Have a great day.

Avalanche & Steeplechase is also great rides for you to start with!

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Do not go on the SLC, Infusion! For any reason! Not even for money!

The physical pain will stay with you for the rest of your visit.

Based on past experience. ;)

Looks really interesting. I'm particularly exited as I rode helix this year and loved it. Can't wait to see how this one goes.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

I have wanted to visit this park for a really long time. Might finally have to pull the trigger with a new star attraction in 2018!

Pleasure Beach boss drops massive new ride hint. The tweet posted by Amanda Thomspon Blackpool Pleasure could be about to reveal plans for a new multi-million pound rollercoaster. Thrill seekers have been filled with anticipation since Amanda Thompson posted images of herself on social media outside the headquarters of ride builder Mack. Earlier in the day she had teased followers writing “Sun is out the sky is blue and a big announcement is due.” Images have been posted on internet forums which appear to show two other tweets from Amanda Thompson one of which referred to a ‘double launch coaster’ due to open in 2018. Those posts are no longer on the theme park boss’s account. The announcement could end months of speculation over a new rollercoaster for the park. Earlier this year plans for a huge new ‘launch’ coaster, likely to be built by Mack, were posted on internet forums. At the time fun park bosses were tight-lipped over the plans.
