    Does anyone have any tips for getting the cheapest tickets? Online through their website is £25 which seems pretty decent to be fair.

    Their website is usually the cheapest way, most of the offers I've seen usually discount the late opening etc.
    If you use Tesco Clubcard the points are tripled in value and can be used against the online price.

    Turns out if you order enough in advance they send the wristband through the post, so no having to queue to collect it...

    Ooh that must be new, we booked about 2 months before last year and nothing. Soo much better, the ticket queues are really bad there.

    I think because it’s a peak date, but very happy to know I don’t have to queue!

    Yeah that’s new this season, book online for peak day and they send it to you!

    Also there’s a deal on now if you book online for August you get a free return visit in Sept if anyone wishes to return again.

    Hi Guys

    Long time no see in meets lately

    Is anyone wanting a pickup from around M25/M1 sort of on route from RM15 (Postcode) to Blackpool.

    Pertrol costs of course shared out. Would make this drive/travel a lot cheaper for anyone interested. Can of course go slightly if route for pickups.

    Just a reminder to book your wristbands if you haven't already as the price goes up the closer you get to the day and you'll want it posting to avoid the queues :)

    Would say yes, but I’m there Friday and Saturday night!

    Also I’ve ordered by wristband, free return visit in Sept and free postage!

    Wristband booked. Had no idea they got more expensive the nearer you got to the visit date - but hey ho.

    :)

    Can't wait to see everyone on Saturday! As a reminder, the plan is as follows:

    Meet at the park entrance (Noah's Ark) at around 9.45am with your tickets/wristbands. If you need to pick up wristbands because, like me, you delayed ordering them in time to be sent to your own address... please do so before meeting the group!

    No doubt we'll be hitting the rides in the morning, before the group splinters off in the afternoon to a group spending a few hours at Wetherspoons before hitting the rides again in the evening.

    Should be a fab day!

    :)

    Please note, our meets aren't always about drinking.

    Fixed that for you mate.

    I hope someone will be taking up the slack my absence will leave. I wouldn't want the bars to go bust just because I can't make it.

    As usual, it should be pointed out that TS meets consist of a group of people with varying interests in parks or rides, and an equal interest in drinking is not required to have a good time with good company. Nonetheless, as the comments above have alluded to, TS Pleasure Beach late close meets are often considered by the community to be a particularly enjoyable opportunity for sensible consumption of alcohol. :) First timers may well find that some of the group take occasional breaks from successive rides to frequent the park's bars, the first of which is likely to be at around 11:00-11:30 AM and instigated by the purchase of a pint by a man in a yellow hoodie. ;)

    In all seriousness, if that's not for you then don't worry. The great thing about BPB is that attendees for whom this holds no interest can simply proceed to the nearest pile of interlocked attractions, nip onto something old/quirky/aggressive and meet up with the bar-goers afterwards.
