I'll be looking into it within the next few days.
I cannae justify staying over in BP, however I might come for the day. I haven't been in way too long.
Me and t'other Bear are definitely up for BPPBPBBPB. Josh hasn't been subject to Rev or Valhalla yet, so I want to rectify that!
Costs prohibit staying and doing AT however
EDIT: Is anyone going past the gorgeous Stafford on the way to Blackpool? Save getting the train there, and faffing with the buses to pleasure beach. No problems if not
Definitely up for doing this!
I might be able to help with travel to BPB but not certain. I was considering staying on the Friday night somewhere too, to avoid a very early get-up.
I'm no longer in a position to offer transport, sorry! I'm still going and will have a few friends in tow at Alton Towers.
Hotel chosen is just off the M6 motorway at junction 21 as follows:
Holiday Inn Warrington
Woolston Grange Avenue,
England WA1 4PX
Rooms with 2 doubles, which sleep 2 adults, costs £86.00 for 2 nights (pay on arrival) - so £43.00 per person for 2 nights - or slightly cheaper if you pay online. Myself, Sam G, Mike will be provisionally staying on Friday AND Saturday nights.

Use promo code 1466 for £15 wristbands, an extra £3 off the 10 day advance price.
Thanks John, that really helps! Going to get mine now.
Once again I have been trumped by a meeting in London. Hope you guys have a great time at Mandyland.
I'd ask you all to have a go on the Big One for me, but the rumours I hear about James might lead you all to the wrong conclusions.
Will be doing Saturday, does anyone know any cheap/free car parks in Blackpool? After spending £60 on petrol I don't fancy forking out another £5-10 to park.
Drive to the far end (south) of the pleasure beach along the promenade and turn left right after the end of the park. The street there is free and usually has spaces free if you arrive early enough. Just a short walk back along the prom to the park entrance.
There are quite a few roads around there with free parking, either like Badgy said at the very end of the park near big blue hotel, quite a few roads along there with free parking, you just need to walk past pleasure beach back to entrance. Or roads near the Travelodge have free parking, and I wouldn't think they will be too busy due to it not being the summer yet (and most hotels will probably be quiet).
I have now booked wristbands for Pleasure Beach for me and Sammy, thanks John for the promo code!
Really looking forwards to this now!
Hotel is good value, Pleasure Beach is good value - all is well!
Ok tickets booked, now just have to scrape petrol together. Really looking forward to this now
Booked a ticket for pleasure beach I've only ever done Pepsi max and Valhalla
You're in for a treat when you ride Infusion.
Is there anyone in Worksop, Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester or even Huddersfield that may require a lift? Person I was takeing has dropped out and could really use some petrol help. Long shot I know but still
Dependant on what plans I make with Mike, I could possibly be looking for a lift. But I'm not entirely sure yet
