visit the pleasure beach it's fun, fun, fun, I went to Blackpool one Easter Sunday with the then inlaws to start with it rained on us then stopped, it then snowed on us then stopped, it then hail'stoned on us then stopped, then thewinds got up, then by the time we were getting ready to come home the SUN came out the moto do not go to Blackpool on Easter Sunday
We arrived at Starr Gate on a Friday just at dusk. This is right at the start of the illuminations.
There was no queue to get into Blackpool, and we were only the 5th car to arrive in the massive pay & display car park.
The illuminations were already on (you can check lighting up times on their web site).
We started along the sea front prom and found a couple of new features including these prestty cool balls that have lights embeded that change colour. My youngest daughter Megan was impressed.
Another new feature was this giant glitter ball. It has a high power light aimed at it and spins around slowly, just like the disco ones. When your stood underneath the spinning shower of light makes you feel quite dizzy.
"The Big One"
Part of the Blackpool pleasure Park, this ride is not for the faint hearted!
Here's one of the great Blackpool Trams. Blackpool was the first town in England to get an electrict tram in 1885, and they are still running strong!
There are not all lit up, only certain ones. They run right along the prom from Squires Gate to Fleetwood.
"The Big Wheel"
Located on the Central Pier, this is my favourite ride (and the only one I go on!). You get great views of a massive section of the Prom and lights from out at sea - at least that's when the tide's in.
... and being on the west coast, you get nice sun sets too.
