My first and last time visiting Blackpool and couldn’t visit without seeing the tower. What can I say…after paying an absolutely extortionate price per person and the blood of my first born we ascended the building ready to experience the beauty of this infamous tourist attraction. After following what can only be described as crowd directing barriers (we were 2 of about 10 people at the time) we entered a 4D immersive experience aimed wholly at children. Once we had been sprayed with water and foam for what felt like an eternity we were directed to the lift which, in my opinion, is where we should have started this whole journey. The tower itself is impressive, as were the views over Blackpool and beyond. I see why this is the main reason people come to Blackpool but why has its beautiful internal decor been transformed into an arcade when there are plenty of these on the piers outside, where they belong. Happy to say that I have visited but will certainly not be returning or recommending to anyone who values their hard earned cash

Lots of steps (there are lifts) to 5th Floor. Went 90 mins before the Lionesses Wembley kickoff so no queues! The 4D Cinema is OK but feels like a trailer for other Merlin/Tussauds attractions - it's there to break the boredom if queues are long. There's 2 lifts up to the SkyWalk level which is crowded but manageable as it peaks when the lift opens and people pour out then disperses as people work their way round. You step out of the lift and are immediately hit by a breath-taking view with 4 glass panels you can stand on. Wait 5 mins and you can get a cracking photo - again kindly strangers obliged and took some pics for me. It's a full 360 degree view, the town view over the hills is also stunning. It took me 20 mins and a stiff drink from the bar, which I enjoyed perched on a barstool overlooking the North Pier, to get the courage to stand on the SkyWalk. It's a mental challenge as you know it's solid but your brain is screaming not to step out on the glass at 380 ft. I couldn't watch the kids jumping on it! You can choose to go up another 3 short flights of steps (the steps are small but steep with a handrail to cling to) and it's very windy outside at the top. The extra netting means the view isn't as good as the SkyWalk level, in my opinion. Staff were brilliant, the older gent operating the lift was really funny. He said the view is different every day and still great even if it's raining.

Hello. Thank you for your review of the Blackpool Tower. It is great to see that you have enjoyed your visit with us. I have to agree the views from the Tower Eye are absolutely stunning, especially on a clear day and what a lovely place to enjoy a Gin and Tonic The Skywalk Floor is of course an amazing feature at the top of the Tower and is a challenge for those brave enough to step on it. Kind regards Kenny

Although kids loved the glass floor t top of tower and 3D movie the rest of tower including ballroom were closed which website does not advise of. Cafe had severely restricted menu - drinks sandwiches and cakes/biscuits only and did not cater for people with allergies or intolerances at all. Feel ripped off that had to pay full price for limited attractions and will not be returning g or recommend so g a yo e else artensa u til everything is open Ed or prices are reduced accordingly.

Hello. Thank you for your review of the Blackpool Tower Eye. It is great to hear that the children loved the glass floor and 4D Cinema. The views from the top are spectacular and we are glad you were able to enjoy this. Here at the Tower, our tickets and attractions are individually priced. The Tower Ballroom was closed due to Government Guidelines and is a separate attraction to the Tower Eye. I am sorry that you felt this was not clear enough in advance of your visit. All of our opening times and attraction tickets are available to view on our website. Kind regards, Kenny,

My partner and 2 children aged 14 and 9 were down in Blackpool for a week and decided to book the Blackpool Tower (Eye) and the Dungeons. Obviously due to the Pandemic bookings had to be done online. So I proceeded to book on th 27th of July for the 28th of July. The process was fairly simple and I my booking was accepted for the Eye and the Dungeons on the 28th. We headed down on the 28th and the Wind was very strong. The guy at the door told me the the Eye was closed due to the wind and he could not wait to get the words "it's not refundable" out. He then procedeed to tell me that the Dungeons were closed. I stated that the system did not prompt us that the Dungeons were closed and why did the system let me proceed with the booking? There was another family in the exact predicament that we were in at the time we were trying to check in. We were leaving the next day so the promise of 'don't worry your ticket is valid for 12 Months' was not acceptable. I can understand the closure of the Eye due to Wind but the system allowing me to book the Dungeons when it is closed, come on!?

I demanded to speak to a Manager to further vent my frustrations. She came out and it was basically like talking to a brick wall. Reiterating what he first guy said about tickets being non refundable. Again I accepted the issue with the Wind was a valid excuse for not issuing a refund but accepting a booking for an event that wasn't open was totally unacceptable. She didn't want to listen, so I asked to speak to someone else or have my issue escalated. She said there was no one in the building that could issue a refund and I would have to phone or email customer service (who were not in the building). I said that I would like to talk to customer service and speak to them with the 'Manager' being present. She said she would have to go and get the number. Fine. A couple of minutes later someone else came out (An actual Manager this time probably) and actually got that the situation that we we in was pretty unacceptable . She procedeed to process the refund within a minute. Three quarters of an hour wasted.

I seen at least three Families during the time we were waiting, having the exact same issue and accepting the fact that they would have to accept the 'No refund policy' despite being able to book an event that was closed.

Potentially families from other countries that will not be back within the 12 Month period to get what they paid for. Really unacceptable. Why not just issue a refund?

We won't be back, despite being issued a refund. So poor from a huge company.

Complete rip off. Having prebooked for five people we turned up and were shuffled into a crowded room with no social distancing and only one or two people wearing masks. After approx 15 minutes we were taken in to watch the short 3D film show. The film was okay but yet another example of covert sexism - showing the costumed all action young boy in the family whilst the sister sat passively by. At the end of the film we were then told that owing to the weather the Tower was closed and we could not go up. We were told that we could rebook for another day. That's fine if you live close by but if, like us, you were making a one off long distance trip to see the lights in the half term holiday it is highly unlikely that people will drive for several hours and pay out for an over night stay just to go up the Tower :especially as there is no guarantee that the same closure would not occur.
Whilst the venue can not be blamed for the weather they should have advised people of the closure upon entry and also offered a refund, or at the very least, the opportunity to get a reduction on one of the other attractions. As it was we simply gifted the venue a sum of money having saved hard to take the children to Blackpool. Hence beware - if travelling a distance and unlikely to return, be prepared to waste your money and end up with disappointed children.

Hello. First of all please accept my apologies for any disappointment caused due to the weather related Tower Eye closure. I understand your frustration, however when you purchase tickets on our website it does inform you that The Blackpool Tower Eye is a weather permitting attraction. The Health and Safety of our guests and team is always our top priority, and if we experience high winds we do have to close due the nature of the attraction. Due to our seafront location the wind can change and vary vs. the weather forecast, due to the height of our structure. We monitor wind speeds constantly, which is why we closed on the date of your visit. We aim to inform our guests as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the wind speeds can change immediately and this resulted in your being affected on arrival to the lift. Kind regards, Kenny.

After many visits over the years to Blackpool but never going to the Tower, we decided to buy tickets for the Blackpool Eye.
Unfortunately on the day we visited the weather was very wet and overcast so we knew the views from the top wouldn’t be great, but that can’t be helped.
We made our way up to the 5th level and the waiting started. Winding your way with hoards of other people, most not wearing masks and all being pushed along together. Went into a circular room that led to the 4D cinema, as more and more people kept cramming in; we were waiting there for over 20 minutes.
The show last only a few minutes, then you exit and join a very, very long queue while you wait for the lift to take you to the top. Another 20 minute wait,nothing to entertain you as you shuffle along, no seats. Again, we were all crammed into the lift, no pandemic, no social distancing at all!
The lift up was good as you travel outside through the centre core of the tower. We all spilled out at the top which was already really crowded so hard to move around or see a great deal.
We walked around the top and ventured out onto the lower outer level, very wet and so windy-as we came back in these outer levels were closed due to adverse weather!
Then another 20 minute wait in a crowded queue to get back down again. You exited into the gift shop/arcade where they hope you’ll spend your money on tacky souvenirs !
And that was it-total let down, a lot of money spent on basically queuing up and spending 10 minutes at the ‘attraction’!
Don’t waste your money!

We booked the Blackpool Tower Eye 4D experience as part of a package deal with Madame Tussauds. For myself, husband, 2 children and an infant it was around £97 for entry to both attractions :)
We arrived at the tower and were directed up to the 5th floor, there was an area to leave our pram, luckily we had brought a baby carrier with us or we would of had to carry our 12 week old baby round the whole experience!!
We were given 3D glasses and directed to a waiting area leading to a theatre, we absolutely loved the 4D experience! The kids thought it was fab! It was a great way of telling the history of Blackpool tower (I won't say too much about the 4D experience or it won't be a surprise for you!!)
We then exited and went up to the viewing point of the tower. There was no time limit so it was lovely to be able to walk around and take in all the views without being rushed! The glass floor was brilliant :) If visiting Blackpool I would definitely recommend a visit to the tower 100%

In spite of pre booking there was Far too much time queuing in cramped crowded conditions with hardly anyone wearing masks and laughable social distancing.
They make a lot of noise about Covid safety measures in place but I only saw one small sanitizing station. I only wish I had had my booster before going!
On the plus side the view from the tower is impressive - once you get there. If this is being replicated at other venues it helps explain the current record levels of Covid cases. No more visits to such densely populated areas for me!

The tower was brilliant but the organisation was pitiful. I had assumed we had bought a timed ticket due to the staff trying to keep numbers down due to Covid and I imagined a 3pm ticket would see me up the tower sometime soon after that. However after a long wait for the lift we were shepherded into a waiting room where there was some attempt to keep people distanced with spots on the floor and eventually taken into the 4d cinema where there are no seats- just a rail to lean against and hope you don’t slip on the extremely soapy floor. Nowhere to put bag or coat down except in a pile of sticky soap suds. 4d cinema ‘storyline’was very random. Quite glad we chose to stand near the back as this meant we were relatively near the front of the queue to go up the tower but still waited nearly half an hour, finally reaching the top at 10 to 4. Having distanced people in the waiting room there was no concern for covid safety in the lifts whatsoever, herding as many people in as possible. I was disgusted. This meant the top of the tower was quite congested too. I had also paid the £1 for a guide but was not offered this at any point so had to claim it from the shop on the way out after the event.
It saddens me that this historical iconic tower has been turned into a money grabbing exercise- don’t get me started on the photo shoot on entrance.
Very disappointed too that although it was a weekend the ballroom was not open to visitors as it would have been nice to combine a visit to both.

Hello Tamsin. Thank you for your review of the Blackpool Tower. I am pleased you thought the Tower was brilliant. I am disappointed to hear that you did not feel safe. All Merlin attractions including the Blackpool Tower are following local government guidance regarding Covid 19 control measures and we are advising all guests to continue to wear face coverings and maintain social distancing where possible. There is no legal requirement for our staff to enforce this guidance. We are not operating at full capacity in the 4D Cinema or at the top of the Tower even though this may seem the case now that social distancing measures have been removed. Our staff are still carrying out enhanced cleaning of all areas and there are numerous hand sanitiser stations available for all guests if required. Kind regards, Kenny.

If I could leave 0 stars I would. Booked our tickets 2 hours in advance, when we came back they said the tower was shut because of high winds. Fair enough but wouldn’t give us our money back. Complete scammers. Would be better giving your money to street traders. Baffles me how a big company can get away with daylight robbery. No warnings that tickets were non refundable or that it was forecast to be windy and a good chance it could be shut.
