About Blackpool Pleasure Beach

If you're travelling with kids, the first port of call should probably be Nickelodeon Land, home to rides featuring cartoon favourites such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer and the Rugrats. If you're more the thrill-seeking type, then don't worry, you've still come to the right place. Blackpool Pleasure Beach is heaving with high-octane rollercoasters, including the Big Dipper, Valhalla, Ice Blast and, of course, the world-famous The Big One.

But there's plenty more to see besides theme-park rides, the Pleasure Beach has a bursting calendar of shows and events all year round, including magic shows, musicals and circus entertainment. And once you've worked up an appetite, you certainly won't go hungry. Take your pick of anything from a three-course sit-down meal to a Chinese takeaway - and everything in between. Finally, it would be foolish to visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach without making a trip to the beach itself, with everything you could wish for from a UK seaside resort - amusements, illuminations and good-old traditional fish and chips.
