    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Future Predictions

    George Formby playing in the station??? They would have to dig him up from Warrington Cemetery first. I was there for the Dippers 90th birthday party, prosecco and fairy cakes. Got told off for taking my pint on Infusion.

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Future Predictions

    Not for years...probably a new flat in the dome.

    Coasters that have gotten better with age?

    Last Friday, Big One, National and Infusion were as rough as hell, and as rough as ever! Streak, Steeplechase and Icon were acceptable, very short queues for night riding was excellent. But oh the bruises.

    Most Painful Rollercoasters & Flat rides

    I managed a very rare walk on back seat in the dark on the Big One last Friday. Combined with an Infusion front seat walk on, and a National front seat walk on, (it really was that quiet), I was pleased to break only one tooth overall. Murder in the dark indeed. Back for it all again this...

    A violent personality, that is fun at parties.

    Most Painful Rollercoasters & Flat rides

    The only rollercoaster to break one of my teeth in many years of coastering was the Grand National at Blackpool...last Friday night. But as it was a front seat, walk on ride, in the dark...I am happy to forgive. "I GOT TO DRIVE!!!"

    Im a big idiot

    Who are you? I have been a coaster fan for fifty years, only in the last twenty years have I had decent access to coaster information from excellent...FREE...sites such as this. They charge nothing, there is a massive sense of community, companionship and sheer happy clapping enthusiasm on this...

    Does virtual reality have a place within theme parks?

    Another big fat no. Always puke inducing.

    What is the worst ghost train you’ve ever ridden?

    Err...Crazy golf around the alpine slide where Oblivion is now anyone? I got a hole in one and won an ice cream off my mum! I know I am old.

    Too tall to ride?

    Yes, I thought that, then rapped my knuckles hard on the first inversion on Icon, upside down slow flop, and clunk on the knuckles...not fingertips, on the track underneath. Clearance envelopes aren't always perfect, south park on BPB...Big Dipper, Big One, Steeplechase and Icon all have...

    Too tall to ride?

    I am bang on 1.90m, and have ridden Infusion at Blackpool every couple of months, for years, with a 1.95 limit. I have only had my height checked once. Stoop a little, they tend to check for under height... but don't blame me if you lose a foot at the ankle.

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    Shame on you.

    What is the steepest drop without any braking device?

    Sorry to be Mr Pedant here, but the steepest drop is 90 degrees. Anything more than that is less than vertical, so less steep.

    Parking Garages

    Yup, Disney's last big multi level parking cost about $100,000,000. That is a lot of wacky worms.

    Favorite M&Ms?

    Snickers was the company owners horse...probably.
