Blackpool Pleasure Beach has announced its next major attraction — a double-launch Mack roller coaster that will feature a record 15 "interactions" with other rides in the English amusement park.
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.
