    Lap Bar Fun Hangtime Launch

    This is a great ride, and just what Blackpool needed after such a long lull of nothing. Great layout that sprawls through the back end of the park in the first half and has great interactions with the other coasters, and a fun whippy second half in the former log flume spot. Very comfy seats with great over the shoulder lap bars, awesome hang time on the inversion(s), and just an overall solid experience that can’t be found anywhere else in the UK. I guess the only disappointing part in the first launch, a Mack signature, but you can definitely feel a boost in acceleration on the second launch in the front.

    Nice surprise! Location Disappointing! Intensity

    As this was hyped up to be the world’s first ‘psycoaster’, it had a lot of enthusiasts VERY interested. I know Alton can’t build above the tree line but come on, a 60ft drop? That’s as family coaster as you can get. The world’s first element was groundbreaking at the time I guess, and if you don’t suspect it it’ll still catch you off guard now. But if you’re a re-rider or you know it’s coming, it’s a gimmick at best.
