Pleasure Beach Night Riding report..9/11/13
« on: November 11, 2013, 11:34:35 PM »
Those of a certain age.. ??? will remember the late night openings in the 70's/80's and early 90's..those that didn't ask your parents.. :tongue_smilie:

I am fortunate to remember those days, yes they were very special times for me..

To be honest I never expected to see the Blackpool Pleasure Beach open until midnight ever again..
It is very difficult for me to explain how special to non Rollercoaster Enthusiast's how exciting this event was.. :thumbup:
Firstly from what I can gather and I stand corrected if I am wrong, Blackpool Council have noise restrictions in place, and the Pleasure Beach are limited to 10pm closing..

Mrs Amanda Thompson the driving force behind the park created this special one off event, I am pleased that the park was so busy and I hope that its not another 28 years to experience this again as it really was quality..

The weather was good and the rain stayed away, lots of excited families and adults rushing around the park.. :w00t:

I did Tweet that its like going back in time and it really was..I met up with friends old and new, I chatted to enthusiast's that had travelled from London and other places just to experience this event..

One word will just about do it justice...AWESOME..!!

Night Photography always tricky, even more difficult with fast moving objects..I hope you like my selection of pictures from this special event..

Ice Blast..




Whooshhhh... :tongue_smilie:














Dave my bestest Buddy/Fanny trying out his amazing new phone.. :tongue_smilie:
You will see lots of pictures of Dave in this report.. :lol:

Show us your teeth.. :tongue:



Blue flyer is a kids ride..But Dave loves it.. :tongue_smilie:








Last one off.. :w00t:









Nice and busy.. :thumbup1:



My mate..DJ Fubar..this guy created the right atmosphere, I am so chuffed that the Pleasure Beach asked him to do it as he is a top guy.. :thumbup1:








Not seen Emma and Connor for around 7 years..superb to see them again.. :thumbup1:





Infusion..









Back in coasters for a beer..











Red Rum opened this ride..

I really hope that they do this again.. :thumbup1:

Fantastic report, it really is.

Dave has some b*lls only wearing a t-shirt  :w00t:

With the time of night was the cold air really bad while on the rides?

Great shots (as always) from a rare night. I really wanted to be there but it wasn't to be. Hopefully I will make it up to Blackpool next year. Just love the place, any time of year.

Chris.
