Only place you have seen a coaster valley?
Not done Blackpool on opening day then.
Revolution managed it three years running, last time it was the Big One.
Mingo has probably got the very worst of operations though, full trains of fast passers on slow one train ops is the lowest of the low, but it was happening from opening last time I visited.
The sea lion "enclosure" was horrific, a grey, cracked concrete bunker that smells of wee, where you look through scratched plexiglass into murky water, at a single dark grey wiggle in the blurry distance.
The food was an absolute horror show as well, the usual overpriced theme park crap, but with an hours queue all day.
I look forward to riding the new coaster, but it needs low expectations, a quality picnic and the good company of friends to make any sort of day at the place a success.
