A lot of Blackpool Beach is closed for the first full refurbishment of the sea defences in over a century (the new sea defences are quite amazing) but this does not affect the Blackpool Pleasure Beach theme park in any way.

Get a grip lol, blackpool rulez!

Blackpool is rarely over the top busy because there is too much to do there. Beach, Tower, Pleasure Beach. Amongst other major attractions and restaurants etc.

Go and stay in the big blue hotel, adds to the experience!

blackpool is tacky over priced and dirty...when i went there in 2006 ( only god knows why I went) the streets were filthy and the pleasure beach was poor.....in comparison to disneyland paris or alton towers even...(just my opinion)


I'm sorry, but how the heck can you compare the Pleasure Beach to Disneyland? :?
#17
Disneyland is a full featured resort; pleasure beach is a day out at the seaside...

Exactly. Not to mention that Disneyland is 114 times the size of The Pleasure Beach. :roll:

I went there last week and spent saturday and sunday in the pleasure beach, it was quiet from park opening (11am) until about 2pm then it went nuts and was crazy busy for about 4hours. Went back about 6pm and stayed til closing at 9pm during which time it was nice and quiet again.

Weather was nice last week though so it depends on how it is on the day really!

Sounds like you're pretty local like me.

Some of the prom is closed off for the works but didn't know that any of the beach is. The new defences will look great when they are done but most of south shore should be flattened. The whole town would look better then.

You're probably right, but the prom closures at least make it pretty difficult to get to some bits of the beach.

And yeah, I am local. :)

sorry I will run my opinions by you before I post next time....
PS I wasnt comparing...just saying for the price you spend in the hole that is blackpool...you could probably get a couple of days in disneyland.....but if your a fan of over price dirty tacky rubbish....Have a fab time!!!!!:roll:


Where can you get 2 days in Disneyland for £25 per person? :w00t:

EDIT: Sorry, £20 per person for one day or £45 per person (plus and evening at a hotel) for two days. Still much cheaper than disneyland. :roll:

I don't like Blackpool, very much either a bit Jeremy Kyle, dirty, smelly and seen it all before.

The only thing, i would probably go for is the illuminations.
#27
Well, Blackpool's better than most places and if it's a family break in the UK that you're after then Blackpool can be quite good fun. :)

Doh! I cant believe it. Oh well have fun in Blackpool :-(
#32
I used to enjoy Pleasureland in Southport when I was younger. I always felt it was aimed at younger people on the whole (there weren't that many "big" rides) and the prices were reasonable too. The fun house was great - I don't know what's happened to that now (nor the one that was in the Frontierland park in Morcambe which is also now closed).

I have many happy memories of sitting on the sky-lift thing and watching the musical fireworks championships from up in the sky. Even the fireworks seem to have moved to Blackpool now... :roll:

Ducky :)

because I dont drink, I have never been out on the razz in blackpool, so cant comment there.

Big Blue Hotel is amazing, very nice and you get parking close to the park without hassle, and the brekky is lovely. Its not that bad, considering some of the B&B's you have to cope with there lol!

- The fair itself is great, a good few hours of fun there. Coasters are ok and things like Valhalla leave a lasting impression. The best water ride in the uk.

Go to Pasaje Del Terror! - You will poopoo your pants lol! - Make sure you go, its well worth the £5 premium! -

Thing is, Blackpool is great for the little shops, the slot machines, fish and chips, fair. Good all round family fun, and not to forget, the tower! (last time we went in, there was a fire scare) AAAHHH lol!

Its no Alton Towers, or Disneyland Paris. But considering its built around a large town, its good enough!

Is Blackpool a city?

The Tower Circus is brilliant, and included in the Tower's ticket price. :)

I must say though, I'm not overly impressed with the "downsizing" of the attractions within the tower... :-(

No.

"Blackpool is a seaside town in Lancashire, England. Lying along the coast of the Irish Sea, it has a population of 142,900, making it the fourth-largest settlement in North West England."

That would make it the biggest town in the north west of England.

In aircanman's defence, Blackpool has a higher population than many cities, including Gloucester, York, Peterborough, Cambridge and Exeter. :thumbsup:

My son loves the new play area in there and takes the mick as I freak out over the walk of faith.
