BLACKPOOL PLEASURE BEACH
United Kingdom (Abbreviation: BPB)
Park News - Nothing to report at this time...
2016 - No New Attraction - Rumor - (8/14/15) According to the latest report sent in, BPB is not planning on adding any new attraction for the 2016 season at this point in time. Older plans for a 4D attraction of some kind have been put on hold. However, the park is also said to be planning to remove the Grand Prix and Go Karts in 2016, as well as the remaining monorail track over Nickelodeon Land and near Avalanche.
(3/19/15) Screamscape sources tell us that BPB may be looking into adding some kind of 4D cinema or new simulator style ride into a couple of sites in the park... either possibly on the upper level of the old Space Invader building, or inside the old Black Hole dome.
2017 - Project 2017 - Rumor - (8/14/15) According to a new rumor, BPB is planning on adding a Mack Rides Launched Coaster for 2017... if all goes well. I'm told that the layout will go along the "Watson overpass" and replace the Grand Prix station, some nearby buildings and the old Monorail station. The layout isn't entirely known, but is expected to use much of the space around the Tom Sawyer bridge, Grand Prix and Go-karts site.
(8/5/15) It seems a bit early for this, but a local guest tells me that a "jeep" has appeared somewhere inside Blackpool Pleasure Beach with the words, "Project 2017" written on it. I'm told that most of the jeep is currently covered up, except for the park with the text, but if the park is really trying to hype a project for 2017 at this point in time... it could be for something massive, like a new roller coaster at long last. Anyone have a picture of the jeep to share?
