I was in Blackpool for another attraction and neither my daughter or I had been up the tower before. We didn't have long so only had the chance to go to the eye. Firstly it's worth booking online if you're planning this to save a few quid. That being said it's a great experience. A short 4d film before the... More

Major attraction but way too expensive for a trip up a tower. Yes the view is good but hey that's it.

The view from the top of the tower is awesome, great for adults and older children. Small children may not like it because the lift up to the top is very quick

Years ago you could go in the Tower and get access to everywhere but Thanks to Merlin they have split it into different attractions. The prices if they were for all day would be ok but one was a tour which lasted an hour and was over £40 we just didn't bother. If you have money to burn and a... More

The Tower is such a great experience but slighty ruined by you being made to have a photo taken about 2 times on a blue screen and then a rubbish 4d experience which was basically a tourist video. I enjoyed Blackpool but the experience was not great, obvs money grabbing xx
