Postby Gary » 01 Dec 2010, 19:27

Is Bling on its way to Southport Pleasureland??

Is this Truth, rumour or Trumour?

It is being repaired, and waiting for parts from the manufacturer. The star has been dropped and it appears they are working on the main bearing area.

Hi

I'm new to Joyland Books Forum but i am a huge enthusiast of Blackpool Pleasure Beach been visiting since i was 2/3. Flying Machines is one of my favourites hence the name.

Regarding Bling it is a shame to see it go but the Maintenance problems of and lots of downtime plus high costs to repair caused the end of this ride in Blackpool Pleasure Beach lasting 6 Years in the park opening in 2004. :)

A Replacement is rumoured for 2012 8) Bling is still standing at the moment but will be removed soon or will sit SBNO until it's removal to an unknown buyer :?

Thanks for the welcome Mesmoland :D

I doubt that Drop Tower will replace because BPB already have a similar type of ride in Ice Blast and don't what to over shun The Big One :)

Hopefully the new replacement comes clear before the 2012 Season 8)
