Today’s YouTube Pick is another wonderful video from psyclonesteve. It features a video to Lightwater Valley in 1995. You will note that much of the park is quite similar to the one that we know today, including the mighty Ultimate, then in its fifth season as the longest roller coaster in the world.
The Thomspon Challenge was held every August by locals in the Cattle Market pub in Preston until the mid-1990s. The aim of the challenge was to ride each wooden coaster operated by the Thompson family in one day, visiting Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Pleasureland Southport and Frontierland Morecambe.
