Is the burned out pier still there? Only been to Brighton once and that was in 2005.


Yep,  I do believe it is. It's quite further up from the 'new' pier but still stands.

Unfortunately, more or less nothing remains of the West Pier so a completely new one would need to be built, which is a shame when you consider how it used to look.

As for Brighton Pier, I think one thing they could do is run their booster better as it has a great position over the sea and its current ride cycle isn't as good as some travelling ones I've ridden.

Or they could get a turbine ;)

Look all i'm saying is it's one of the UK's most notorious piers, and a popular tourist destination.... Which at this current time has no 'impressive' or 'special' machines... Just a pretty common fabri booster, mouse coaster, sizzler/twister and a couple of other machines....

I'd like to see a turbine there, as you'd fit more people on one gondala then you would on the two on a fabbri booster, it's taller, and has got the rotating feature, making it unique...

I wouldn't go out of my way for it, if you're in brighton, sure, pop along, but I wouldn't plan a trip to Brighton ESPECIALLY for it..

Standard machines, fabbri boster, reverchon spinning mouse, log flume, twister/sizzler, zamperla air race, haunted house, dodgems, turbo coaster so nothing special... the air race is the most unique machine there..... Also expensive place, CRAP ride cycles :/ Talking about a 1 min cycle on the booster, even with no queue, for like £5..... :/

Fairly serious accident at the pier which probably does nothing to ease that bit of paranoia you get when watching flat rides. For an air ambulance to be called it was likely a fairly major injury.

Not the first major incident on the pier. Hopefully it was a freak accident and not a result of poor maintenance.
