Blackpool Pleasure Beach BH 31/05/10
« on: May 31, 2010, 09:22:55 PM »
Well what a brilliant afternoon at the Pleasure Beach, I have not laughed so much in ages and I ended up with a sore chest.. :D

We met up with Christina & James and said a big hello to her parents.. 8)
We also bumped into James & Heather.. 8)





The park seemed to be busier then of late but has it fulfilled expectations..?

















Now heres a different one for you all.. ;D
A lady trys to take her small baby on the Pepsi Max Big One..!! :D :D :D

Honestly she was seriously trying to take him on the ride, I watched in utter disbelief as she pushed her pram up the ramp to the door only to be told by a ride op that he was too small to ride.. ;D

I bumped into her as she left and she was saying that she was going to complain about it.. :D :D
I am going write about this in a different topic.. ;)











Lady and Baby were seen going in the direction of Bling.. :D not sure if they got on though..









Back to the PMBO I met the parks most prolific riders, I think that they have around 20,000 rides between them.. :o





















We decided on a beer at King Cottons..



Me with my Niece Heather..



Louise with her Brother James..























Nice touch..



Now this was the strangest thing ever..!!
Whilst having pictures taken a bloke ran over to me and said that he has seen Live In Blackpool and can he have his picture taken with me, I said ok..
You will see what he did in the last picture.. ;)..







Quite strange.. :o :o :o



A few lads who shared the same bottle of bleach.. ;D











 ;)

"The park seemed to be busier then of late but has it fulfilled expectations"

I don't wish to put a damper on things, but is that what PB are calling a a "busy Bank Holiday Monday afternoon"?

Good lord, I hadn't realise things had got quite that bad down there!

Hopefully a % of the increased visitor numbers will filter down to that end of town.

Great set of pics Peter, particularly liked the 3rd from last. Having an incredibly warped sense of humour, you are never going to know just how difficult it has been for me not to crack an inappropriate gag at someone else's expense!!! lol
Always look for the positive.....

Its hard to calculate if the parks doing well or not due to pay as you enter, I think they are still able to do good business but it could be better, I know that the piers have done very well this weekend..

Please crack your gag.. ;D ;D

Another stunning report Peter - the standards you set are just so high. The lady with the pram looked quite annoyed as she was leaving the Big One queue, though it does make me wonder how she thinks rides like PMBO and Bling are safe for an infant of that size! :o
Which rides did you make it on today? Judging by the number of people there today, the ride count must been a bit lower than during most days so far of the season..

Very much looking forward to the next TR peter as always.  :)

Well what a bizarre day,  Peter. How can any sane parent not see the  common sense in wanting their baby  to  ride a coaster?....Crazy crazy crazy...

And the bum cheek man....whatever next.....Come to think of it, don't answer that....  :D

For a bank holiday it didn't look that busy but the weather didn't help.....

Loved seeing  your Avalanche pictures but I always do 8)

Chris.

I've only just got round to reading this. It was such a funny day and I hope we have plenty of days like that in July!

I'll do my trip report when this cold that I've picked up at some point over last weekend bogs off a bit. :-/
