BPB have always aimed for 'spring' historically and in today' climate (complaints /social media ect) it makes perfect sense. Look at the backlash Alton have had so far this year. People start claiming they have paid for hotels, and all that jazz, where as they have no grounds for any complaints at BPB because it' never been said it will be open by any specific date. If they want to spend the next 2 months testing it from 10am-8pm to ensure its right no one can make any kind of issue. It' a shame Towers didn't do that really.Forgive me if it sounds silly/ignorant but is there any particular reason Blackpool usually aim to open new rides towards summer instead of when they reopen for the new season around March like Merlin do?
In any case I'm very excited to ride this, about time the UK stepped up our coaster game.
