I went here in the 90's. I believe it was a 50 p weekender, where all rides were 50 p. I went there again in August 2017. The queues were crazy, I couldn't get any tickets.

Towering over Blackpool's pleasure beach it's hard to say if it's a remnant of a magical past or a futuristic mega structure. It's frightening looking up and up and then watching the coaster drop down almost vertical before it dawns you too will be on...More
