Blackpool Pleasure Beach

A great day out.

semi-overcast 15 °C

The kids have been waiting for this and they were'nt disappointed. The Pleasure Beach at last visit 16 years ago was pretty run down and grotty. This time around it is the complete opposite. Very clean and tidy more like Disneyland.
We arrivied at opening and left at closing, there were no queues off one ride and straight onto another, we must have at least 30 rides.
The new Nicalodean Land opening 2 weeks before our vist and was fantastic, great roller coasters and rides, the only ride not enjoyed was the air bender, which was a real stomach turner, both the kids thought they were going to be sick.
We all went on the old woody roller coasters which were 60 odd years old, The Mouse Chase, The Stepplechase, and The Grand National.
The talking point of the day was who was going to go on the Pepsi Max, which is one of tallest roller coasters in the world, we all knew Janine would'nt but the kids???? In the end it was the brave Kenzie who lead the way and Briana and Me for back up. It was amazing to see there faces when the saw the huge drop at the top of the climb and the speed we go up to around 120 kmph. Kenzie could'nt lift her head with the G Force. I was proud of the girls and they really enjoyed it.
The ride of the day was the Valhalla, which is an indoor water ride. It is the best water ride in the world as voted last year and was amzing, but don't expect to come out dry at all and it is a great idea to leave it till last, we rode this twice and were absolutely soaked from head to toe. The ride has pirotechnics and amazing lighting it is themed around the russian old land. A must if you go. We have ahd shoes drying out for 3 days now but it was worth it. If you go to Blackpool this is a must.
