I must admit I first looked at the ride and thought instantly we were looking at an intamin accelerator but I did have feelings of disappointment when i see that it's manufactured by MACK rides.
Just going to leave this here ...
Seriously, you're welcome to the opinion that Intamin Accelerators are better than MACK Megas, but the reasons you've given are incredibly weak. MACK aren't just a company that spew out Wild Mouse coasters and Powered Coasters. They're one of the most innovative, reliable and high quality manufacturers in the industry, much superior to companies such as Intamin based on statistics alone. MACK are behind some of the smoothest yet unique and thrilling coasters in the world (not to mention the fact that they tend to use lap bars where Intamin tend to use OTSRs), and I for one am very glad Blackpool have decided to bring one of their coasters into the UK market, which has been starved of any high quality rides since The Smiler in 2013.
