Birthday treat in Blackpool.

11 Jul 2013
Visited with: Infant, Child
Earlier in the year we visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach as a treat for my oldest sons 7th birthday. We managed to get cheap tickets online as it was before the official opening for the year. We had a good day out and went on lots of rides but we went on a very cold day and we were all frozen by the afternoon. My youngest son was too cold and didn't want to go on any of the rides as a result. The rides themselves were good and there was plenty of variety. My oldest son had a great day. We left the Park to have lunch in a nearby restaurant as we didn't think the food in the park was what we wanted and I have dietary requirements. The food looked overpriced and it was too cold to eat outside. Toilets were clean and there were lots of cafes for a hot drink. In all a good day but would only return in good weather.

Great day of fun

07 Oct 2012
Visited with: Child
We live in Scotland and the journey is 4 hours . . . we 1st came down with our 6yr old last year and stayed over. (Special treat for him after winning £1k on the grand national, this was what he wanted to do as lots of his school friends had been talking about B'pool) Now bearing in mind we always holiday abroad (Cuba, Turkey, Portugal) Blackpool isn't really our idea of a "holiday"!! Therefore we grundingly promised we'd take our son down for 1 night!! We travelled down Sunday afternoon, arrived late and spent the Monday at BPB. This happened to be the Monday before our schools went back after Easter hols on the Tues, however English schools were already back, so we practically had the whole park to ourselves :D Bonus!! We bought our passes online a few weeks before for £60 (2 adults, 1 child) and I love the fact that once you have bought your wristband, then that's pretty much your purse done! Ok so there's lunch and snacks or a photo of the rides but these are very reasonable compared to other theme parks. And because we bought them a few weeks before you forget you've paid them and seem to expect to pay for quite abit inside the park. We were so busy on the rides though we only stopped for a brief lunch and dinner before heading back home! We found the park to be great fun, son was keen to go on all the rides possible, only ones he wasn't allowed on were the big one and the cat and mouse. Staff were friendly, park well sign posted and lots of chairs etc to rest. Plus we had lovely weather so again . . .Bonus!! The car park is right at the entrance, and gist shops etc were very reasonable. We were at Disney Paris 2 years back and were Shocked at prices . . . BPB is still aimed at kids pocket money which is fab :) We have been back twice since and are returning next week whilst the Wristbands are only £20 pp :D Just a shame we have to spend over £100 in petrol to get there!! Oh well, u only live once xx

Nice theme park

29 Apr 2012
Visited with: Child
We went here a while back on a family holiday and it's really cool! Me and my son are thrill seekers but unfortunately he wasn't allowed on the bigger rides so when i went on with my friend my girlfriend would take him on the thrill seeking younger rides! I have to say my favorite ride was Valhalla, couldn't get over how cool it was! My son loved all the rides especially the Noahs ark one, that was his favorite. Great, fun day out!

Fun for all ages!

10 Oct 2010
Visited with: Infant
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.

If you have never been, then go !

I could fill a few pages about this place, however to keep it short and sweet.... If you have never been to the pleasure beach, then Go !! Its a large park with lots to do and some fantastic rides to go on. Teen + will love it. It has over the years got tatty and now you have to pay to get in rather than pay on each ride, you cant just wander round like lots of kids used to do. Maybe this will help to keep the park happy. The website is a must if you are unsure, just watch the ride reviews and videos and you can even book/buy your tickets etc. Dont forget to take your camera, lots of fun places to get pics.

Blackpool still top for thrills

11 Apr 2010
Visited with: Teenager
It used to be possible to pay for rides individually at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, but Britain's brashest amusement park has changed with the times and now there is an entry fee. That might make it a bit pricier, but it does avoid having to drag the children away from the rides kicking and screaming when the cash runs out. The rides themselves are still pretty awesome, and I found it particularly satisfying to watch pallid looking children vanishing up the terrifying climb up the Grand National, having almost vomited myself a good twenty years ago. Blackpool is trashy rather than classy, but if you don a kiss me quick hat to revel in the smell of chips, candyfloss and rock, you'll love it.

BLACKPOOL PLEASURE BEACH THEME PARK

12 Mar 2010
Visited with: Child, Teenager
This is a great theme park for the slightly older children who dont need to be accompanied on the rides. Best to book tickets on line as there are some great offers : 2 adults and 2 children is £55.00 - a saving of £55.00 if you bought at gate! You really need to get there early (ideally when it opens) to avoid the long queues and wear comfy shoes as you'll be on your feet all day! I find this place abit hetic in the summer holidays and you must keep an eye on younger children at all times to avoid losing them as it does get very busy, often with teenagers. Plenty of food places and gift shops. I take the kids on the beach the same day which is close by to the theme park and its great to have a picnic and let the kids run free! And to end the day, have a walk along the front for the local fish and chips! A very long, tiring but fun filled day for all the family!
