Be aware its 11.00 open and by the time you've got your wristband and got on the first ride it could well be 12,00 and they start closing down the rides around 4,30
Some rides sometimes don't operate at all
That's why it's £15- the rip off merchants

Hardly a rip off as you state, compared to usual prices, it's a bargain and a good day out

Wouldn't go so far as to call them rip-off merchants, but good point about the opening times. Not 10:00-18:00 like you'd expect.
I feel ripped off, I went 3 years ago and paid more than this. Can I get a refund?

Do security still rifle through one's personal belongings to make sure there's no unauthorised food packed? They at one time insisted visitors used the expensive onsite takeaways; picnics weren't allowed.
it's expensive there. £5 just to get in the place, so if your taking someone who doesn't want to go on any rides they still have to pay just to walk round, used to br good now just a rip off

Whilst it's a shame that it's stopped people just nipping in for a ride or two you can't deny it's a much nicer place in there now as a result of the entry fee though, it's stopped the gangs of anti-social chavs who used to just hang about swearing. It's also the only UK amusement park to do that - at any other one any non-riders (elderly relatives for example) end up paying full price just to come along on a family day out which could be £35 for example.
I also liked the old days were you could wander around free and pay to go on the rides. I haven't been since they changed it but I might give it a try

im not a fan of the entry fee, but why shouldnt disabled people pay for an entry pass?
Edited by: "dart16" 17th Feb 2016
Here here dart16, I would also like to know why disabled people shouldn't pay ? (mother in law is disabled).
Yes, I would love to know why disabled people shouldn't pay as well.
massive queues. Kids went this weekend as we are local and I've never seen queues like it.

Me too! I don't understand why disabled people should get better treatment than other guests at the majority of theme parks etc
Blackpool is a complete dump full of deadbeats. Keep an eye open for the horrible Gypsy woman near Coral Island who puts "Lucky Heather" on your lapel, then when you refuse to give her any money she'll get abusive with you.
I'd argue that Wild Mouse is the scariest ride in Britain. Makes The Big One feel like the teacups.

They still have that old, wooden deathtrap? Impressive.

Used to have a gf in blackpool, the place is generally a bit of a dump.

I didn't bother with your girlfriend, the queue was too long.

something similar happened to me...
The Gypsy gave me a flower and gave me 'good luck' but when I started to walk off I got the **** look...
I do uderstand peoples opinions about disabled people paying after all they are having day out like everyone else.....however some of them cannot use any rides so therefore should not have to pay full amount (nor in my opinion should ANYONE who isn't using the rides but who IS accompanying people who are riding)
I'm not registered disabled at moment however I do have an illness that means I cannot stand for long lengths of time and therefore I was entitled to a priority pass for theme park which allowed me and my children quicker access to rides......believe me I'd rather be able to stand in long queues and never suffer the daily pain I do.....than end up being the subject of other disgruntled theme park users who look at me and see a "normal person" but do not understand that although myself and my children enjoy the rides.....we could never go on them if I was expected to stand for an hour or two in each queue.....I just couldn't do it! So next time you see someone as a "priority rider" have a heart and think that maybe they have to go through a lot every day in order to qualify for such "special treatment" .......

Personally I have no issue with disabled people being granted free passes. I don't really see this as a problem to be honest. This has no bearing at all on the biggest bug bear in theme parks, which is lengthy queues.

Compare this to say, paid-for "fast passes" which most parks seem to offer. There are few things in life more infuriating than standing in a queue for 2 hours while smirking swines swan past you, in their own special queue, because they paid for the privilege to do so. Last time I went to Universal Studios I watched people queue in the fast-pass, then immediately rejoin the fast-pass queue to reride, again and again, apparently completely oblivious or uncaring to the fact that each time they rode again they extended the queue for the rest of us. It's expensive enough paying for theme parks without having to pay outrageous fees to make the queues palatable.

Disney deserve a huge amount of credit for ditching this approach and offering fast passes that are more like pre-bookings.
anyone been recently using this offer... any rides closed?
