Blackpool Pleasure Beach - Scottish School Hols Oct

Thinking of taking kids to Blackpool during Oct week school holidays Scotland ( 15th -19th Oct) Anyone know if all rides should be open. Website states park is open 11am-5pm/6pm but that rides opening times may stagger. Is it best to book parking online at time of booking wristbands? Are either of the Bella Italias outwith the park - Church Street & Victora Street any good as I have Tesco Reward Vouchers to use? Many thanks. Any other tips greatly appreciatted

Best to book your parking when ordering wristbands.

Staggered ride opening - Not all rides open at opening time. Last one is usually Grand National 11.30. A very large ride, and track checking takes longer etc. Derby Racer, and Flying Machines open early. Big one normally opens within 30 minutes of gate opening. All rides should be open. Big One closes in high winds. Monorail sometimes closed weekdays. Tip - get there early!!! Saturday is busiest day - 9.30 will help avoid the Q for your wristbands.

Never been to Bella, but the Big Pizza Kitchen in the Park is really good!

Thanks very much for your prompt reply. I'll book the parking online. Do you know what time that carpark will close? the park closes 5pm on Thurs & 6Pm Fri would we need to move the car to another carpark in order to go out for dinner that evening in Blackpool.

They are advertising on TV that if you buy the wristbands in advance online they are a special offer price of £20.

I have been to the Bella Italia in Blackpool - years ago but it was great. Never had any hassle using the Tesco vouchers in any Bella Italia. Just remember that you can't use them for set menus, has to be from the normal menu.

I think the car park closes a few hours after the Park . You may be better off in a Municipal or public car park. https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms…

There is an Irn bru 241 offer for PB (gate prices) - check valid dates. I litre glass bottles, mainly distributed in Scotland only.

Hi, Not sure about the opening times of the Pleasure beach that week but can recommend the Bella Italia..Haven't been to the Church St one is but the other is right outside the Winter Gardens...It is quite expensive but if you check on their website it'll give you an idea of what you get and special deals tend to be on weekdays (when you are going) .If you are planning to use the trams a lot think about getting a family travel pass for the duration of your stay. It works out cheaper than paying every time you get on and you can use them on the blackpool transport buses as well.. Also check out if the hotel you are in have any vouchers in the lobby like "kids go free" or "2 for the price of 1"
