Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Lancashire

Pleasure Beach in Blackpool is the UK's top theme park attracting over 5 million visitors a year.

Entrance to the park is free although in 2009 there will be a charge. Once inside the park you can purchase a wristband for unlimited access to over 125 rides. In 2007 Pleasure Beach was ranked the 14th most popular theme park in the world with its combination of thrill rides, rollercoasters, water rides, amusements and shows. There is something for everyone from the fast thrillers like Pepsi Max Big One and Revolution to the family orientated Alice ride or Lunar carousel.

One of the most famous rides at 235ft is "The Big One", Europe’s tallest roller coaster. The latest coaster addition is Infusion, a suspended coaster that takes you through five incredible loops plus a double line twist.

There are height restrictions on the bigger rides but there are plenty of rides and amusement for small children so they won't feel left out.

There is no shortage of places to eat and drink with over 35 restaurants and cafes, as well as a pub and a hotel.
