Title: Opening Day Blackpool Pleasure Beach 07/02/2016
Post by: PETER MOWBRAY on February 07, 2016, 08:42:22 PM
The Season started officially yesterday here in Blackpool, but the Pleasure Beach hosted a huge Cub Scout party at the Pleasure Beach so it was closed to the General Public, it was to celebrate 100 years of the Scouting movement..well done  :thumbup1:

Well today was the official opening of the 2016 Season at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach..
This year marks 120 Years since it first opened and I am proud to be a guest of the park for 40 something years of that.. :tongue_smilie:

We arrived at a windy Pleasure Beach but the Sun was being kind to us, after a bit of a faff getting our passes due to the sheer number of people and a two fingered typist we finally received our wristbands and entered the park.. :thumbup1:

Before that I felt as if my throat had been cut but had a lovely coffee at Starbucks before we entered..

I have to give credit to a lady Manager with spectacles on duty this morning,I liked her and she is very good at her job..

Good helpful Staff at Starbucks, makes a big difference and first impressions count.. :thumbup1:

Appreciate the report and magnificent photos mate.

I believe the park experienced a few teething problems on 'opening day' but they must be applauded for being the only theme park open in February  :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
