    What to see and do in Blackpool?

    Banned
    I'm heading down to Blackpool for a few days because that bloody volcanic ash got my flights to Dublin cancelled. So its a bit last minute and I was wondering if anyone could recommend stuff to do and if their are any deals on tickets for things?

    Cheers

    Is it best to book online for tickets to shows/pleasure beach or just get them down there?

    YOu could grab yourself a shed load of big issues and sell them for profit:whistling: Thats what most people do there.
    Gone down hill in recent years IMO

    Sandcastle - tropical Indoor themed water park, Zoo, Model Village, Stanley Park, Pleasure Beach, Tower, 3 Piers, Grand Theatre, Opera House and Sea Life. Loads to do but can be expensive

    Is the manchester bar still open?

    Pleasure beach is cheaper online, other than that you need the locals card which gets you into places cheaper

    If you have tesco vouchers

    Yes - try go to the Tower as there's loads to do in there - bars, shows, amusements, kids area if you've got the wee ones plus a trip up to the top of the tower as well. Its a good place to go if its raining. You used to be able to go in early and then return later on same day if you got your hand stamped but don't know if they do that any more.

    I'm going to Blackpool tomorrow for the weekend!!

    Paddy if you're interested I would recommend the Ripleys Believe it or Not museum. I went to one in the states and it was awesome!

    Discount vouchers makes it £3 entry rather than £8.
