BPB is probably my favourite park in the UK, there's something for everyone. The Big One is amazing; my personal favourite ride though is the steeplechase, the small, tame "coaster" where you go around on a carousel horse. I come off it crying with laughter every time.
Have a fab trip

Wallace and Gromit! Disney level detail. So clever.

We have always parked south of the PB around clifton drive / harrow place. But that was a couple of year back now and it was always hit/miss depending on how busy it is. But if you happy to walk a little there is always someplace to park for free.

We go to Blackpool regularly and always park for free on Clifton Drive. Itís a couple of minutes walk and have never failed to park there. You can then walk down the prom afterwards or take a tram.
As for eating, we could only eat fish and chips in Blackpool ! Our favourite is Bentleys on Bond Street which is about a 5 minute walk from the Pleasure Beach. Friendly, traditional good food. If you fancy an ice cream then Notariannis on Waterloo Road, itís turn right after the big McDonaldís on the front. Fabulous ice creams ! Again no more than 5 minutes from the Pleasure Beach.

You will find Clifton Drive area easier if you go in to Blackpool the airport way rather than in to the town centre and then down the prom.

Have fun !

Don't forget it's blackpool airshow this weekend so will be mobbed

You can go off the park and back on at any time. There is a Witherspoon nearby and other foodstalls around if you don't want to eat on the park
