The £16.25m (US$21.2 million) coaster will open in Spring 2018 and feature 4.3 Gs of acceleration, on a 1.14 km (3,740 foot) course, with an 82-foot maximum drop. The ride will feature several overbanked turns and roll elements as it rush through a forest of track from other rides in the park, including Blackpool Pleasure Beach's biggest coaster, the Big One, as well as Steeplechase, Big Dipper, Pleasure Beach Express and the Grand Prix.
Here's a concept POV video, from the park.
The park says that this will be the first double-launched coaster in the United Kingdom.Tweet
No but seriously this looks amazing. I want a major US company to buy from Mack.
As for the "15 Interactions" thing. Blackpool pleasure beach is perhaps overloaded with rides. Taking this overloading and turning it into a selling feature (I suppose "Interactions" is more exciting to say than "It goes near other rides 15 times") is a stroke of marketing genius.
