Title: Blackpool Pleasure Beach report..7/9/14
Post by: PETER MOWBRAY on September 13, 2014, 10:22:33 PM
I will definitely do more reports from the home of Wooden Roller coasters.. :thumbup1:

This unique park that I have been visiting for over 40 years, still holds something incredibly special to me..

I have not been able to visit properly or ride due a 'back' disorder, I am feeling 100% better now, so expect more reports from Blackpool Pleasure Beach.. :w00t: :w00t: :tongue_smilie:


A few pictures from last Sunday.. :tongue_smilie:

For the first time all Season I actually rode my favorite ride of all time...The Grand National... :thumbup:

I am old enough to remember riding this on 6 trains, with NO safety bars and lever brakes..!!  :w00t: :w00t:

You must remember the 'Please DO NOT stand up ' over the loud speaker as it made its way up the lift hill..!!

That used to freak me out..

I think that its fair to say that the seats are a bit tighter these days.. :lol: :lol:
