Infusion is a Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster. It used to be called Traumatizer when it was at Pleasureland Southport, although it was relocated to Pleasure Beach, Blackpool and re-opened on 2 May 2007.

Design Edit

Infusion's track is painted blue. The supports are painted dark blue. The cars are standard Vekoma SLC. Large fountains spray water from the man-made lake below. The walkways to and from the ride are painted a shiny metallic colour.

Water Edit

Infusion is built entirely over water. The ride uses water jets to soak the riders as they pass through the first drop.

Opening Edit

Infusion was opened on 2 May 2007, but it was "officially launched" on 7 June 2007 when Vernon Kay visited Pleasure Beach, Blackpool and rode the ride.[1] There was media coverage of both launchings.
