Somehow missed this in my search, but it seems the dates are two months off from me. I'm near London till end of May, will rent a car for Blackpool near end of May? Can pick up people on the way from London. Let's make something happen?

i went for the first time a few days ago. i don't recommend the Steeplechase, as I've now got a bit of a bad back due to it! my favorite ride there is Ice Blast (even though it broke down the first time i rode it- we had to get off so they could reset the ride and the air pressure, then test it).

Updated Main Post:

I think I'm fairly free end of May so I'll probably be able to get a day off work if required. I know Jammy can't do Saturday/Wednesday or the 23rd May so that gives us:
24th May
26th May
27th May
29th May

The 24 or 26th will most likely work. Will update in a couple days. Anyone else?? I can grab you if you're nearby/on the way, if you trust an american driving on the wrong side of the road.

Nice, 26th will work best for me as work is usually pretty hectic 24th.

I'm from 26th to 1st in the Birmingham area. Too bad I couldn't get more days off. Otherwise a little roadtrip would have been perfect.

Yeah that would've been pretty cool, could do a lot of the northern parks.

Does that mean you can make it though Dirk? I will be able to give you a lift if requried.

24 is best for me, however I will make the 26 work absolutely fine !! Moving it to 27 or 28 if it helps Dirk or someone is awesome too. Earlier best for me.

No good reason for the dates - only plane ticket costs back to the US- I'm heading back and this will be the last trip for me, just finding the cheapest flights so I will work around dates.

Nope, as I'm there for other reasons than Rollercoaster leisure. :lol:

Well I shall be there haha - current forecast is "clouds and sun" which pretty much means summer in England.

Awesome, I haven't spoken to Jammy just yet about specifics but I think we'll aim to get there with plenty of time before ride opening (10:15 or so I guess) just to make sure we make the most of the day!
