Weekends in October are amongst the busiest of the year with the Illuminations in full swing !

They are running for one extra week this year until 10th November.

If you want a rare, but fantastic, Blackpool experience on Saturday 9th November the Pleasure Beach is opening up from 6pm until midnight so guests can experience the thrill of night riding.

Been to many theme parks and very few of them have an atmosphere that rivals Pleasure Beach in the dark.

Just hope the weather holds up !

Yes, its high season in Blackpool October until November 10th, illuminations. Very busy at weekends, less so during the week. Tower, Circus, Ballroom, Pleasure Beach, Sandcastle Water Centre, Madame Tussauds, Sea Life Centre should all be open, as well as the free illuminations along the Promenade and a few shows on the North Pier, Grand Theatre.

Take a look at the visitblackpool website for details.
