BITSoftheBEACH: Steeplechase


 

The Steeplechase was designed by Arrow Dynamics Company, USA. Frank Wright (general manager of The Pleasure Beach) and his team built it and it opened in 1977.
 
The track is nearly half a mile long and the horses themselves can reach speeds of 30mph.
 
At the time of its completion in 1977 this wonderful ride cost 813,000.00 to build.
 
The Steeplechase reaches a height of approximately 40 feet and was opened by Red Rum, the famous Grand National horse! (The horse certainly left its mark on the opening day!)
 
When the ride first opened it was known as The Steeplechase 2000, but of course time has caught up with it!
