Wow, that coaster looks awesome! That will get me back over the pond again (not that I need too much persuading for Blackpool).

Is this going to replace the Vekoma SLC Infusion (brought over from Southport)? If so, that's quite the upgrade :-)

Hi Rick

I believe Infusion (aka Traumatizer when at Southport) will be staying. I don't think any coasters will be removed for it which means the new coaster may be intertwining / running alongside with The Big One, The Big Dipper, Steeplechase and Infusion in that part of the park. Amanda Thompson has had her critics but I salute her. :-)

PS: Not too sure how many yrs left The Wild Mouse has..there are rumours that it may be soon going but they are just that for now: rumours. The new Mack coaster will compliment all the above and Avalanche, Nickelodeon Streak (aka Roller Coaster), Blue Streak (aka Little Dipper),Grand National and Revolution very well.

Looks fun. That hill/drop that goes through the big coaster looks like the best part.

BPB beckons me. It has for years. Its "story" keeps getting better and better, as told to me by other enthusiasts and with news like this.

The only attraction going to make way for the new coaster is - I think - The Go Karts and they were an additional fee ride.
