Here's a video of the Infusion ride
at Blackpool Pleasure Beach
, shot yesterday on opening.

very cool, and I'm glad they actually put the water effects/fountains in that were on the concept art. The colors look cool too. Were new Vekoma SLCs suppose to have better/smoother trains? have they retro-fitted any of the older yet such as this one?

I think the new SLC's are supposed to have smoother trains (spring loaded guide wheels, I think), but Infusion is not a new SLC. It's relocated from Pleasureland Southport and has been around since 99.
Personally I'm not too excited about this addition. I expected something better from BPB.
edit - did BPB get new trains for Infusion or did they keep the old ones?

Blackpool got rid of a bunch of classic rides and installed a used SLC with water fountains. Yay. Now I have to make it across the pond.
