Blackgang Chine!!

Recommended Posts

Hi does anyone know what’s happened to Cliffhanger now it’s departed Blackgang Chine? I hope it has been bought by my local Theme Park Camel Creek in Cornwall. Camel Creek’s signature Rollercoaster has been incredibly unreliable and will likely be scrapped. Cliffhanger would be a great replacement.
 

I wouldn’t be surprised if the replacement for Cliffhanger is Enterprise from Alton Towers,Spinball Wizzer from Alton Towers,Rocky Express from Thorpe Park,Apocalypse from Drayton Manor or Floom Of Doom from Funland Hayling Island.

 

Please can you all share your opinions and hopes for the future of Cliffhanger and it’s replacement? I hope the replacement is one of the rides I’ve listed. All these rides are/were too good to scrap. 
 

I wonder if a new ride will replace Blackgang Chine’s new ride that collapsed earlier this year?

I don't know what exactly is replacing Cliffhanger, but I am under the impression it will not be a roller coaster, and instead a small-ish flat ride.

Basically none of those rides would be viable options.

Enterprise is on its last legs, and takes a lot of effort to keep open (much more than a park of Blackgang's size could cope with)

Spinball is too big a coaster for the park

Rocky Express is being scrapped

Apocalypse is way too big a ride for the park

@Matt N you are clued up on Theme Parks do you think Blackgang Chine’s new ride will be one of those in my list? Matt is it a realistic possibility for Cliffhanger too end up at Camel Creek?

If you want my honest opinion, I’d guess that it’s unlikely to be any of the rides you listed, but I guess Cliffhanger going to Camel Creek might not be out of the question.
