Blackpool Pleasure Beach has recently announced a NEW coaster for the park that will be opening Spring 2018.  To be known as ‘Construction 2018’ for now, (theme parks tend to avidly guard the final name before announcing with great fanfare closer to the time), this new project will provide guests with the UK’s first ever double-launch!  You can find out more details below on this new ride coming to Blackpool.

For those that can’t wait until 2018, follow our Guide to Blackpool Pleasure Beach Deals for more information on cheap ticket offers, vouchers & current promotions.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach; Construction 2018

Set to cost £16.25m to build, this NEW ride for Blackpool Pleasure Beach will come with advance technology that gives the coaster two powerful thrusts of acceleration during the ride. This double launch will propel riders at high speed both at the start of the ride as well as a second point half way through the experience for maximum thrills.  Boasting of an initial acceleration 4 times that experienced in a Lamborghini Gallardo, construction of this new ride will reach heights of 88.5ft & drops of up to 82ft!

To be manufactured by Mack Rides, Construction 2018 will feature a ground breaking 15 interactions involving 5 different rides PLUS 2 tunnels!  The two and a half minute ride experience will interact with five other Blackpool Pleasure Beach rides including the Big One, Steeplechase & Big Dipper.  We’ve come across a possible image of the new coaster but this has yet to be confirmed by those in the know, (more details below).

Plenty of Blackpool Pleasure Beach deals currently running for those planning a trip in the meantime!

Blackpool Pleasure Beach; NEW Coaster for 2018

First posted on Reddit by user 330ml, we’ve come across this image from the Blackpool Gazette purporting to be a proposed image of Construction 2018.  However we’ve yet to receive any confirmation from Blackpool Pleasure Beach as to whether this is indeed linked to the new project.  There is sure to be a succession of announcements to follow in the coming months so we’ll bring you more details as they come in.
