Or rather, paying their exhorbitant ticket prices!
It isn't working on me, I just feel nauseous!
Yep they would need to have a price structure but don't need to overcomplicate it.
They have those daft scanners which are now pointless, so why not use them for something useful like a pay per ride system. Can't be that difficult to implement.
Ok, this is purely hypothetical. They are never going to try it unfortunately. More likely to rebuild the Wild Mouse..... now there's an idea
Yeah I can't look at it for more than a few seconds.
I think a limited ride selection and 15 to 20 quid a head would work better than a PPR attempt. Make it clear it's limited rides and roll from there.
Wasn’t that the old February weekends anyway?
The early season weekends typically had the whole park on offer for a discounted rate, the late season Nov/Dec options often had a reduced line up for a lower rate.
Those were great times. I remember going in December once, paid around a tenner for the South area, probably no more than 100 people there. Re-rides on the Big One in the snow. Miss those and the full £10 wristband days even though it was carnage, the atmosphere around Easter was brilliant.
I really like supporting UK parks but I have a weekend booked in Blackpool in October and for the first time I am considering not going to the Pleasure Beach as think £40 per ticket for me and the wife is too expensive. I am gutted feeling like this as I love the Pleasure Beach but I do not think it is worth the money.
Have you been to the Sandcastle waterpark? You could go there instead maybe as it's cheaper.
We will do the Merlin attractions as we have MAPs, also the piers and on the Saturday night there is a round of the world fireworks championships. We also like the heritage trams so we will find plenty to do.
Are they not doing the saver online anymore then? When you book over a week in advance type of deal?
I think it’s around £32 off peak and £35 peak booked in advance
Now varies between £37 and £44, booking in advance.
Saturdays are now £44 in advance!
Soak those staycationers!
One of the joys of capitalism though, if you don't like it, vote with your feet.
I paid £70 in advance for the 2 kids in May half term. Has it gone up even since then?
I thought I would get a discount for booking in advance but the Website gave me advance prices for £40, On the Gate Price of £42. This is for Oct 10th
Well that sucks if you can’t do a weekend day for under £40 even booking in advance, when you can get in towers for £27 just for eating crisps or cereal !
Yep my thoughts exactly.
It's a minimum £40 midweek and £44 on Saturdays (with advance booking) . The only slightly cheaper days are the winter weekends.
So likely that next year will also be at least £40 after wow weekends.
You dont even need a voucher for half price entry at towers. Just book via the carex website. You don't need to take a voucher with you. I did this last week and got in for £26.50 plus the £6 parking.
Pleasure beach are in danger of over pricing themselves, if they haven't already.
Having said that it makes the season passes really good value.

They are simply managing a built up congested park through ticket pricing.
Mandy's Range Rover Evoques don't grow on trees you know.
Massive staycation demand has pushed prices up everywhere coastal.
The Beach has always made a peak season price increase, then does discount offers midweek in the loomynations.
Their pricing has become even more fluid this year....different weekdays sometimes have different prices.
Tram to Fleetwood.
Chips at the ferry terminus.
Ferry to Knott End.
Pint in the (only!) pub.
Ferry back and tram return, walking the last bit between the three piers.
Living the high life in the North!
Top day out.
Am I the only person who doesn’t think £40 for a day out at BPB is too expensive? I’ve always got on more rides at BPB in 6 hours than I have at Alton. £40 is under 4 and a half hours work now days at NMW. Maybe living in a major tourist destination in Cornwall has skewed my outlook on pricing, but I can’t even have a night out for £40 anymore! Heck a round for 4 cost me over £25 at my local the other day!
