Opening day 13/02/2010

The Opening day at the BPB 13/02/2010

I have just returned home after having experienced the best opening day at the Pleasure Beach for over a decade..
It was superb everything was perfect and the park looked excellent, I had a lovely conversation with Mrs Amanda Thompson of which will stay private but I congratulated her on her superb work around the park as you will see in this report.

We arrived at the park slightly later at 11am as we wanted to avoid the rush, the Pleasure Beach was bathed in sunshine and as we entered the park through the security gates we were met by the lovely Sculptured Gardens.
I was a bit excited at the prospect of seeing these gardens and the images that I had seen on Facebook do NOT do it justice, I sincerely hope that mine do.. 😎

The Pleasure Beach are selling healtyh food, and I was impressed with their range.
Dont get me wrong we love Pizza and hot dogs but prefer lovely jacket potatoes..

We made our way to the Big Dipper and was met by a stunning site as you will see in this report it looks brilliant and rides better than ever..
We decided to ride the back of the train as this is normally the roughest part of the train, we found it to be smooth as glass and the air time as your bum left the seat was amazing..

The Dodgems..
Well the asthetics and visuals of this ride is amazing..  8)
it looks so good as you will see in the images, I opted out of riding it though due to my shoulder healing after my car accident but Louise & the boys rode it and loved it.. 8)

Now my biggest surprise was the Ghost Train..   😮
It has changed inside…. 😎  😎   yes you heard me right it was kick ass scarey…!!
They have seriously spent a lot of money here on animitronics, they even have an exorcist girl with a turning head..!!
Brilliant we left the ride quite shocked its amazing…

The PMBO was silky smooth and running very well.. 8)

Staff training, its obvious that the staff have been trained to a high standard, the management of the rides are of an excellent professional standard.

Time for pictures and i will only comment if its something that needs to be explained..
I hope you like them..

Vampire Beach ( Halloween Special ) Report 31/10/2015

Halloween at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach just gets better and better every year.. 

:thumbup1:

From a scattering of pumpkins around the park only a few years ago, to full on displays today, I think that its fair to say that the park has nailed it.. 

:thumbup1:

I was only discussing this to a few friends, that I have been visiting the park for many years, I remember in the 1970’s the hustle and bustle and the night riding and the  5p a ride end of season specials… 

:tongue_smilie:

Well I honestly thought that I would never experience that kind of excitement again at the Pleasure Beach, well last night was quite honestly amazing…

Mrs Amanda Thompson and her Team most certainly created a very special event last night, and she also made the entry to the park FREE of charge to experience the delights…

She not only did that, but every person who entered the park in costume received a Vampire cocktail voucher for a drink at the bar…!

This really was a generous thing to do..thank you.. 

:thumbup:

Well to my report…

We arrived at an already rocking or was it bouncing Pleasure Beach at around 4pm ish..

It was incredibly busy, if I was to say thousands upon thousands of people, I would be close to the mark… 

:w00t:

The atmosphere of the park was like one huge party, lots of things happening from Live music, to entertainers as my report will show…

It was brilliant… 

:thumbup1:

We got into the fun of it with our costumes…

Brad..

Charlotte and Louise..

And me… 

:w00t:

I was watching the bands performing on the main stage and all of a sudden found myself being picked out of the audience along with 2 other people…

It was the best costume competition…and I am so pleased to say that the audience voted for me…. 

:tongue_smilie:

So I am the official Vampire Pleasure Beach 2015 Winner…. 

:w00t:
:tongue:

Here I am with Mrs Amanda Thompson OBE receiving my Unlimited Pleasure Beach pass for 2016… 

:thumbup1:

Lots of entertainers wandering around that created an amazing atmosphere..

Night riding at the Pleasure Beach..its just the best.. 

:thumbup1:

More  stilt walkers… 

:tongue_smilie:

Live music… 

:thumbup1:

Amazingly carved pumpkins…

Charlotte sadly has her leg in plaster, but I want to mention that for only £5 you can actually hire a park wheelchair for the day  

:thumbup1:

He was good with this Zombie animertronic attached to him..but as I said..its not a costume… 

:tongue_smilie:

Over on the smaller Vampire stage, my attention was drawn to some quite unique acts…

As fire eaters go, these were actually amazing…
