Question about BPB

Thursday, June 16, 2005 12:13 PM
I haven't checked the news lately, but from reading people's trip reports, it seems that the Roller Coaster is out of comission or something. Does anyone know why they quit running it, or did they not quit running it? I mean, that ride is classic and I think they should at least keep running it. What's happened to it/?

Oooh, and is Grand National running again after the fire. I'm assuming so since it is one of their more popular coasters.

He isn't talking about the Grand National, he's talking about the Roller Coaster.

Well Blaster was asking if GN was running after the fire. He know's he was talking about roller coaster. I hope. ;)

Yes, I know he was talking about Roller Coaster. The fun little coaster without restraints. I was simply asking about GN (thus the "and is the Grand National running again")since I hadn't seen any updates. I've found my answer so never mind.

I didn't even know that Roller Coaster wasn't running.

I went to PBB in February, and while the Grand National was running (and was a fantastic ride!), Roller Coaster was not.

It was one of the first few days of the season, so I chalked RC's downtime up to the time of year. Space Invader wasn't open either. Not sure if these are open now.

"Grand National was running (and was a fantastic ride!)...."

Just keep pouring salt into my open wounds, will ya? ;)

CFM, I'm just really, really, really jealous...don't take it personally! :)

I went on a Monday in May and the Roller Coaster was running.

During the off-season when they offer reduced wristband prices, several rides do not run - just a shame they don't mention this on their website. I thought I was paying £12.50 because the park was only open 4 hours, not because several major rides were closed as well.

Valhalla, Big Dipper, Revolution, Space Invader 2, and Trauma Towers were all closed when I last visited the park.

Incidentally, all of the rides (except Revolution) were running on the Sunday when it was £30 per wristband. *** Edited 6/17/2005 6:14:03 AM UTC by Grant***
