Avalanche at Pleasure Beach Blackpool is the only roller coaster of its kind in the UK. This Mack Bobsled coaster has a 1,490-foot track that is designed to resemble a course you'd see in the winter sport. The three seven-car trains descend Avalanche by riding between and up the banked walls. It's a fun ride and because the trains are not attached to the track every single ride experience is somewhat unique.
