That's great stuff. I think she's genuinely fearing for her life there.

Gotta love that in order to claim Infusion -- an off-the-shelf SLC -- breaks some sort of record Blackpool's marketing department uses the qualifier "over water."

Actually Moosh, you forgot the qualifier "completely" in your qualification. ;)
How far away was Pleasureland Southport from Blackpool? Looks like less than 25 miles on the map (as the crow flies). It's not like they moved it from across the country or from continental Europe. The thing came from, literally, just down the road.
At least it's one of the prettiest roller coasters. (rollseyes)
Yeah is Good!

Indeed, it's amazing how well they've managed to polish a turd.
It doesn't ride badly, either. So far.
I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.

Na, she was probably scared at first but that was a total COASTERGASM!
She loved it. Trust me. ;)

Why would the have someone who obviously does not like rollercoasters.. do a report and ride a coaster?
Not good advertisement for the park.

Oh I think it's GREAT advertising...would we be viewing and discussing it now if she could handle it?
I'd put her on every TV ad for the park were it up to me. That's priceless stuff. PRICELESS.
NOTE: Severe fecal impaction may render the above words highly debatable.

But i'm sure the park is not looking to advertise people ready to hurl.
But media coverage good or not so good.. is still media coverage.
