Pleasure Beach Blackpool, Lancs, UK
The Red Arrows are set to fly over Pleasure Beach Blackpool on 25th May to officially open the new SkyForce thrill ride.
Riders will have the chance to perform their own aerobatic display by manually controlling the wings of their own 'aircraft'. If riders time it right, they can flip 360° over 50 times! CoasterForce attended a soft opening on 16th May. CoasterForce Social Media Goon, nadroJ, loved it, "The location quite close to the seafront means that if the wind catches you right you get the most out of control spinning with little to no effort. Amazing!"
Amanda Thompson OBE, the Pleasure beach's Managing Director, said, "The [Red Arrows] are an amazing sight to see when they are in the skies and I am certain our new ride will give our guests a unique thrill they will want to experience again and again.”
SkyForce is a Sky Fly attraction from German manufacturers Gerstlauer. Despite it being a big new attraction for the park,the 72ft (30mtrs) still dwarfs in the shadow of The Big One's lift hill.
CoasterForce has four SkyForce videos for you to enjoy - view them on our YouTube channel. For your chance to win a SkyForce lanyard, please see the link below.
