For those who like to whiten their knuckles and raise their heartbeats, this is a thrill-seekers’ mecca. 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’s 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!
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.Probably Great Britain’s most iconic resort, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is a guaranteed winner for families and those looking to raise their adrenaline.
