The awards take account of both the quality and quantity of reviews for all the top theme parks in the world.Described as a 'beautiful, tropical oasis' the Discovery Cove headed the list as the best amusement park, as it includes a wide variety of water activities ranging from swimming with dolphins to snorkeling with tropical fish and rays.Florida did notably well in this year’s awards with five amusement parks in the top 10 worldwide, with Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Disney’s Hollywood Studios also making appearances.While the UK couldn’t boast any attractions in the top ten globally, the UK has been revealed as home to more 2014 award-winning amusement parks than any other European country, with seven winning parks named in Europe’s top 25, alongside tough competition from such parks as Walt Disney’s Studio Parks and Germany’s Europa park.The Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusement park achieved the coveted top position as the UK’s best amusement park; describing itself as ‘the UK’s most ride-intensive park’ it offers such attractions as the Big One and Valhalla.
Other top UK theme parks following close behind included Alton Towers located in Staffordshire, Brighton Pier and Surrey’s Thorpe Park Resort.It just goes to show how well blackpool is doing in maintaining itself as the top seaside attraction  :thumbup: :thumbup:

It puts a smile on my face to see the PB voted Top Amusement Park in the UK, and I have to take my hat off to Paulton's Park getting 2nd place.

Hopefully this should see some more additions coming to the PB in the near future, now that more recognition is being given to the park like this. A nice couple of flats if you don't mind Mrs T!

Great to see the Pleasure Beach getting the recognition it deserves. Sure there are some gripes we all have that we'd love to see addressed but, in my mind, it remains one of the - if not the very - best value days out in the UK.

For a whole 10 hour day at the end of July my wristband is only £19.99 which is unbeatable value.

Anyway, I've been reading with interest that a new ride looks to be on its way to Pleasure Beach for 2015, most likely on the site of the (much missed) Bling Ride.

An "Air Race" from Zamperla.

Not my cup of tea - and I wouldn't be eating within 2 hours of riding it lol - but looks a pretty thrilling ride nonetheless and has to be better than the empty space which is currently there.

Heaven is
