Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Advantages: Fun, fairly cheap
Well, I've never been to any other theme parks so can't really compare Blackpool to them at the moment but the Pleasure Beach is a great day out. I'm from Liverpool so it was only about an hour and a half's train ride to get there when I lived back home.
I have been a few times when I was younger and always enjoyed myself but was too scared to go on any of the more scary rides! I got a few of my friends together for my birthday last year though and headed for Blackpool. The day we went there it was really sunny so it was lovely to be near the beach and at the fair.
I summoned up some courage this time as well and went on some quite scary rides (felt all proud of myself afterwards as well!). I costs approximately £30.00 for an adult wristband which means you can go on whatever rides you want as many times as you want so if you get there early and stay for the whole day it's really good value. You go to the ticket desks and buy your tickets or wristband and then go through to the pleasure beach where it has all the rides, souvenir shops and restaurants. A few rides worth mentioning that I went on when I was feeling brave are Valhalla, The Big One and The Irn Bru ride.
On Valhalla, it is set in water, kind of like an extreme log flume ride! You go up past a giant rat above you and then round all different kinds of viking scenes where there is dry ice, fire and wind. Some of it is pitch black and quite scary and at the end you go down over a cliff edge into water so I recommend you buy one of the plastic jackets for £1.00 as you will get very wet!!
The Big One is a massive rollercoaster, nothing out of the ordinary to mention as far as rollercoasters go but very big!
The Irn Bru ride is very short but was the scariest one in my opinion! It's another rollercoaster type ride but very,very fast. It takes off suddenly, loops around and all sorts really fast and then does the same thing again but backwards - I think I screamed for the whole ride but it was great.
If you want a fun day out for a relatively cheap price, I recommend that you go here if you're up north!
Summary: Go here for a fun packed day out with your friends
