But BPB still has 10 coasters, which is more than Towers or Thorpe has regardless of when they were added. They are also more thrilling in my opinion, but that's for a different argument. It doesn't matter when the coasters were added, they are still in the park so to suggest that BPB is only good for nostalgia is a bit unfair.If Blackpool had built a custom coaster since 1994 I would be more keen to lavish praise on them.
But they haven't and Alton Towers + Thorpe Park have built 5 since. Even Chessington have built 2!
If you're into history/nostalgia then Blackpool is going to be your favourite park. If you aren't, then it won't be because they do not invest in big custom rides anymore.
