    A compact Gravity Group woodie with a Zero G roll would be a good fit for that considering it would be the first inverting wooden coaster in the UK. Not to mention it wound't be that expensive.

    Or remove one of the airtime-less hills from Nickelodeon Streak (because it isn't listed) and replace that with a zero-g roll. Replace the train and you're good to go!

    If it was only that easy haha. I don't even think it would make the inversion with the slow pace of that ride.

    Nick Streak with a Zero G would be really bad, plus it's in Nickelodeon land and marketed as the main family coaster in a family orientated area. I don't even know how that could be marketed.

    ...and for the cost of that they could probably build a whole new off the shelf coaster above the new hotel car park.

    Just been drooling over Lagoon's 'Cannibal' coaster. Something like this would add a real spark to BPB's North park. Imagine that elevator lift hill tower exactly where Ice Blast stands now. Demolish Beach Amusements & the Bow(e)l a Drome, Valhalla if necessary, just get rid of wasted space and get this thing built now!

    ^I'd choose Kärnan over Cannibal personally.

    Just looked up that one. . . "The ride starts with a short dark ride section which features some clever holograms. It then has an enclosed vertical lift hill in almost complete darkness. The car stalls midway up the lifthill and there is a brief reverse freefall which is quite alarming if you are not expecting it! The main drop is near vertical."

    Holy s***, why can't we get badass rides like this in the UK? Surely a tower with a vertical / elevator lift hill coaster like these would be the perfect fit for BPB, with its limited space? Not only that, it would be first of its kind in the UK. Of course I don't count Speed, Saw & Smiler with their vertical lift hills, I mean a massive tower lift hill like Cannibal / Kärnan.

    Cannibal has an elevator lift and beyond vertical drop, and Kärnan has a vertical lift and a vertical drop. :)

    A new woodie would be nice for me but I think would have little impact on BPB's appeal to the public long-term. Something like the above would be a hit if feasible.

    Had the same thought. I made a layout in rct3 haha. Although I put it in the empty space next to the big one's first drop.
