It has been years since I visited the pleasure beach, during the mid 80's I lived in Blackpool and often visited the pleasure beach.
Our reason for the trip was we have a boy of 8 and he has a cousin of 9 who love fair grounds and Love spongebob, with Nick Jnr land being advertised it was a must visit, we used our Tesco vouchers to pay which went without a hitch.
The park has changed since I visited wrist bands that carry bar codes are put on your wrist at the start of your visit which you zap at most ride entrances, my wife's was put on far to tight, they are like the hospital bands once on you can't take them off without breaking, tried to get it changed which wasted sometime and failed to find anyone who could help.
Some rides don't open until later which wasn't mentioned, in fact the chap who put the wrist bands on said all rides were running, disappointing start to the day.
I was surprised that a fair number of the rides are still running from my 1980's visits, the revolution was the big ride then and still looked very good, although I used to love riding it I didn’t this time, its an age thing.
Nick Jr was very good my boy and his cousin loved it all, shame it was so cold as some rides get you very wet which isn't good on a cold day, they enjoyed the two roller coasters best. The Nick shop was okay but as expected expensive and I thought a little limited in the range, wasn’t much in the way of clothing, few t-shirts in bags which would of been better on hangers to check sizes.
All in all it was a good day out, can't say in was a very good day out as the late opening and the expensive food (can't take your own in) is a let down.
