Blackpool Pleasure Beach is an amusement park situated in Blackpool, England. The amusement park was founded in 1896 by the Thompson Family who is still its owners today. The park is extremely popular and has broken many records for its rides in the past. It was the first in Europe to introduce a fully inverting steel roller coaster and is the last remaining park in the world to have a steeplechase roller coaster. The park is a mix of new and old rides and roller coaster engineering. There are rides and entertainment for everyone and that's why it has always been one of the UK’s most visited attractions.
If travelling by car, there is a designated car park just off ‘Bond St’. The amusement park is a 20-30 minute walk from ‘Blackpool North’ train station which is served by trains from all parts of the country, you can get the train from ‘Blackpool North’ to ‘Blackpool South’ which is a 5-minute walk away from the park. The Blackpool tramway and the 1 and 21 bus services stop outside the park.
