Europe’s second biggest coaster and theme park club for enthusiasts, Coasterfriends, is holding a UK tour in July. As part of that tour they will be visiting Southport Pleasureland to ride our four coasters – and we’re very much looking forward to meeting the group!
The club, based in Germany, currently has 2500 active members and is the largest theme park club in its home country. On a global scale, their website www.coasterfriends.de is the largest website in this niche market with a massive 15 million hits per month, five million page views and 500,000 monthly visitors!
Their UK tour will take in nine different parks over nine days and will bring from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Apart from visiting the UK this summer, 2015 has included trips to Japan, Italy, Netherlands and the US.
Many of their members are listed on coaster-count.com, a website where people can register the amount of individual rollercoasters they have ridden on – the tour organiser having ridden on a massive 1514 different coasters!!
We are highly delighted to be included in the tour and look forward to welcoming Andreas and his fellow club members next month.
