Blackpool Pleasure Beach is perfect for families with children of all ages.
As well as the infamous 'The Big One', the Pleasure beach has ten other thrill rides suitable for older children/teens/adults, Infusion being the new addition to the family.
Beaver Creek is great for smaller children. It includes a mini dipper, teacups, a mini railway, a little log flume, a helicopter ride and other various fairground rides. There is also an opportunity to meet Bradley and Bella Beaver and have your child's photograph taken with them.
Facilities such as toilets and changing areas are plentiful but they aren't kept very well. I would recommend taking some anti-bacterial wipes to wipe down the changing areas etc.
Cafes and refreshment areas are also dotted about everywhere but it is standard 'fast food' - burgers, hotdogs, chips. If you don't want your children to eat this kind of food I would recommend packing some lunch.
The park is easily accessible by train. It has its own railway station "Blackpool - Pleasure Beach". However, the park is only a couple of minutes from the South Pier and about a four/five mile walk from the North Pier.
Shows and entertainment take place at regular intervals during the day and the evening.
Wrist bands, which will give you access to all of the rides, is usually about £30 for an adult and £25 for a child or senior (over 2, over 65). However, it isn't uncommon for BPB to sell wristbands at a lower price, and you can usually get a discount by buying online.
Under 2's are free.
