What have the queue times been like this season on the weekends? We are thinking of making our first visit since Covid next weekend and expecting it to be fairly busy but not ridiculous hopefully.

Queues seem to have been quiet from socials but I'm unsure when they'll pick up for events. Someone's been for 4 days and done 125 rides quiet levels.

Thanks to all that provided me with some advice. Visited Pleasure Beach on Friday and had a fantastic time.

Pretty much walked on everything I wanted to do that day, though sadly Big One was closed due to strong winds that persisted.

Loved Icon and rode that 4x times. Such a unique ride and I agree with much of the sentiment here that it was marketed poorly.

Got to experience Big Dipper, Nickelodeon Streak and Grand National. Had my head battered by Infusion.

£40 was good value for money, given the variety of unique experiences and the sheer number of times I went on everything. I was also surprised by how much there was to do for little'uns, so will have to return with my son and wife in tow.

Can anybody help out with a survey/questionnaire used by BPB at any point, as I really need one for some coursework and cannot find one online?
TIA

They used to send you an electronic one if you booked/paid for day tickets, but all the links I have are dead.

Has anyone without a season pass received one recently?

Something (old but sort of) new coming to the casino.

This video is wonderful, with some rare views, including the AutoWorld tent and the Swinging Gyms (@rob666). Also the Log Flume and various snippets of South Park. Core part of the video is a PoV of the National, sans restraints.



Hard not to be nostalgic for simpler times, really.

Never got the Swingin Gym over the top without assistance.
Scary as hell on the very edge of the overpass.
Good find Rick, searched for a video of them for years.

This is a three part series, if the rest are as good as the first one we are in for a treat.

Damn just watched that video on YouTube and man can't wait for part 2 and 3.

Don't know what it was but that soundtrack from Blackpool Pleasure Beach over the last few mins of the video really did hit me hard and got me real emotional. Must've been the old days and memories.

(A video with soundtrack hasn't done that to me in ages. Disney Wishes at Florida still gets me crying now even when I have the soundtrack) also I'm not crying just leaking as I used to say.

Will deffinately be watching part 2 and 3, damn if it was a DVD i would get it straight away.

You could have issued a dead rodent warning there.

Trauma begins after about 12 minutes - for those that haven't already watched it !!

Some good footage there, love the old / new image transformations.
