With the fiver thing you get to go on a train in the park free and there's a little kids magic show you get to see as well.

Haven't been to Blackpool for years, £20 unlimited rides isn't bad considering you could stay in there all day and unlike Alton Towers I bet the queues don't last for hours. The only time I have been truly scared on a theme park ride was the first (and only) time I went on the big one just after it opened.

Might go up before the schools go back.

£5 to walk around looking to see if theres anything you might spend money on and then they wonder why everyone goes abroad for their holidays, rip off britain at its best


Not as bad as every other theme park that makes you cough up to £30+ and possibly not go on any rides at all.

often wondered whether these places would do more business if they didnt charge for parents who DONT want to go on rides.

mand d theme park in glasgow only charges for riders so the kids can get unlimited wristbands and mrs barky and myself dont pay at all.

If you are taking 2 or 3 kids and paying for them,that should be enough for these theme parks-seems to be very few places you can get in free tho if you arent a rollercoaster fan.

We were there last week and its £5 just to enter if you don't buy a wristband for the rides. Bit unfair I think especially for parents/grandparents etc who are just taking the kids. But you do get on a couple of things like stated above. However once in you may decide you fancy a go on the Big One and that's a whopping £8 to get on if you don't have a wristband. Grand National is £5. Unbelievable prices so you're as well getting a wristband (especially if you use your Tesco points as it only costs £8 to convert). That's what we did for 2 adults and 2 kids - £32 in Tesco clubcard points is all it cost us.

No because Tesco base it on a wristband being around £28 (I think). Its actually £30 to buy a wristband at the gate (or £20 online through BPB) If you look on the Tesco clubcard section it tells you. Its also in the wee booklet they send you with your points - £8 for a wristband. Still a bargain though considering what they are charging for each ride.

We went yesterday bought wristbands for the kids and me, and just day passes for my parents, and it did mean that it wasnt full of kids milling round for somewhere to go, so well worth the money as far as I am concerned. The high security was a shock though, full metal detectors and bag searches. Took us ages getting through security as they searched every bag.
#15
I forgot about that bag search,when i went last year i had to go in a different entrance as my sis had used her Tesco vouchers and booked online and i had to go in on my own and i was like,what the hell is this all about oO

£5 at the door. You have to go to the Ticket Centre opposite the opening of the Pleasure Beach entrance now as its all changed. Everyone has to queue in the ticket centre to get their wristbands etc then go over to the entrance and through security check. Its beside that walk in scary ride thing that every screams and you can watch it on the screens outside? Can't remember teh name. Massive queues but the're loads of people serving so not as bad as it looks.

Queues were really big even early in the morning and got worse during the day but didn't take too long in getting to the front. Big One was the worst I'd say and the Ice Blast as we waited around 40 mins and that was early evening by then when it wasn't so busy.

Still big, my eldest two got three of the bigger rides done in about two hours though so nowhere near as bad as Alton Towers. But by the afternoon the queues were huge, the grand national looked to be at least a two hour queue after lunch. And the Pepsi Max was a big queue all day. Kids stuff was really quick, nothing over a ten minute queue. We spent £115 on wristbands and day passes etc and calculated that if we had bought ride tokens we would have spent much more. :)

Would definately recommend getting there early, we arrived at ten and the queue to collect wristbands/pay was really big, although it did move really quickly.
