Lose control at Blackpool Pleasure Beach
For those who like to whiten their knuckles and raise their heartbeats, this is a thrill-seekers’ mecca and using one of our great value Best Western hotels near Blackpool Pleasure Beach as a base you’ll be staying right at the heart of the action. But it’s also so much more.
Sure, Blackpool Pleasure Beach has its rollercoaters. Plenty of them, 11 in fact, including the original wooden model that gave the ride its name in the first place. For decades the Big Dipper was the main attraction but this has since been eclipsed by even taller, faster and scarier rides including the Pepsi Max Big one, the tallest rollercoaster in the UK. There are also plenty of rides just for the kids, if they’re not quite ready for the full fear factor.
Returning to terra firma with wobbly legs, it’s time to relax with a coffee and some lunch. We’d recommend the Horror Bar where you can watch terrified customers who’ve just finished their Pasaje Del Terro experience – an interactive horror walkthrough that’s simply one of the scariest things you can do in Great Britain!
Blackpool is a classic British holiday destination and ideal for a fun break for families, as it has been for many decades. It has always been built for pleasure which can be seen in everything from its world class fairground rides to the pristine beach. Buy some candy floss, take a stroll along the promenade and simply soak up the atmosphere.
Dotted around the Pleasure Beach are endless traditional attractions, the chance to win prizes and, of course, plenty of treats like toffee apples and candy floss. You can also take a trip to Nickelodeon Land to meet your favourite characters, sample the amazing SEA LIFE, Madame Tussauds and of course, the Tower itself.
As part of your family fun UK short break, why not take a trip up the famous Blackpool Tower to get a grandstand view of all the attractions on offer? The views are amazing at the top and it’s the closest experience you can get to Paris in the North of England.
If you want a break from the kids in the evening then Blackpool Pleasure Beach also offers a great break for adults and groups of friends with an exhilarating nightlife, amazing clubs and plenty of places for those who don’t want to party into the early hours (that’s you Mum and Dad).
Probably Great Britain’s most iconic resort, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is a guaranteed winner for families and those looking to raise their adrenaline. Strap yourself in and buy your wristbands in advance to get big discounts on all rides and attractions.
