Blackpool Pleasure Beach


Blackpool Pleasure Beach is the UK’s favourite amusement park, with over 125 rides and attractions, spectacular shows and it’s the most ride intensive park in the UK.

Home to the steel mega-coaster that is the Big One, the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land and the world’s first Wallace & Gromit ride, Thrill-O-Matic, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is full of world firsts.

Family thrills and memories that will last a lifetime are assured at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and there is plenty to keep all ages amused. Nickelodeon Land is home to 12 amazing rides, a whole host of Nickelodeon characters themed around the world’s number one children’s entertainment channel. With its colourful, park-like atmosphere, Nickelodeon Land is the perfect place to hang out and meet popular Nick characters

Pleasure Beach operates on a wrist band basis. These are pretty obviously worn on the wrist and are shown when you go to each attraction.

You can  buy a pleasure beach pass for £6 and then purchase ride tickets for individual rides for a £1 each.

Each ride is worth several ride tickets e.g. the big dipper is 5 and the Alice Ride is 3. Entry to the Chinese Maze and the Express are free.

There are also food wristbands that allow for unlimited meals at £22.50 for adults and £17.50 for juniors (gate price - online has a discount) and this may be useful if you are there all day.

There are three narrow guage loco's that can transport you around the park on the Pleasure Beach Express.  Apart from the thrill rides (more about then later) there are plenty of more gentle rides aimed at family visitors. Here are just a selection. For a full list including a vintage carousel visit

Small children under 117cm must be able to walk unaided and must be accompanied by a responsible person who has a wristband or the required amount of ride tickets.
