The market wants what the market wants!
Well in all the time I've been there I don't think I've queued more than half an hour, and that was for the biggest rides. As for food, you can leave the park, have your food and go back in. Or like I do, leave the park, have a walk on the beach front and get some chips then go back! I honestly think Blackpool is one of the better theme parks as queuing times are less and you can leave the park and there's actually places to go nearby
All very good points and well made, including the "Blackpool does let itself down in some ways" comment. We also live sort of just down the road (an hours drive away) and it is indeed great to take our grandkids there for days out a couple of times a year.
I agree, but it's not all bad as there is..... -An expensive theme park with the most rides per square foot in the UK. -3 large piers, all with arcades and fairground rides. 1 has a bungee, an inverted bungee and a huge swing thing. Another has a massive ferris wheel. Another holds the annual firework world championships. -A large tower with plenty to see and do, this also houses one of the most prestigious ballrooms in the UK. -An indoor water park, the largest in the UK. -Winter Gardens complex, a large grade 1 listed building full of character that has been host to lots of big names along the years and held political party annual conferences. -A famous opera house, the royal variety performance has been her on many occasions. - Stanley Park, Lancashire CCC still come and play some games at the cricket pitch. -Waterloo pub, this has a famous crown green bowling stadium and holds many televised tournaments. -A zoo. By no means the best, but there is one. -A world famous annual light show that stretches for miles. -many other attractions inc. Coral Island, Tussauds, Ripleys believe it or not. - a famous tramline -the golden mile -A blue flag beach and a regenerated promenade. I could go on, and yes Blackpool does let itself down in some ways but I consider myself lucky for having it down the road.
Totally agree with you. It was bloody brilliant :)
