Q - What is Pleasure Beach, Blackpool's admission procedure?
A - There are two ways to enjoy Pleasure Beach. Either purchase a daily Unlimited Ride Wristband or a Pleasure Beach Pass. All visitors must choose one of these options. The Unlimited Ride Wristband allows you to enjoy all our rides all day long at no extra cost, it also allows you to enjoy Nickelodeon Land rides. A Pleasure Beach Pass allows you to enjoy the ambience of the park, ride the Pleasure Beach Express, explore the Chinese Puzzle Maze and experience our Spectacular Dancing Water Show.
Q - What is an all day Unlimited Ride Wristband?
A - A wristband allows you to enjoy all the rides at Pleasure Beach and Nickelodeon Land. There are number of Unlimited Ride Wristbands according to the type of visitor:
1. 12 Years and over unlimited riding all day. Includes entry to the park and unlimited riding all day long, plus unlimited riding on Nickelodeon Land .
2. 11 Years and under unlimited riding all day. Includes entry to the park and unlimited riding all day long, plus unlimited riding on Nickelodeon Land (height restrictions apply)

3. Senior Wristband (65 and over) unlimited riding all day. Includes entry to the park and unlimited riding all day long, plus unlimited riding on Nickelodeon Land.
Please note: height restrictions apply on certain rides and some attractions may charge an additional cost.
Q - What are the family wristbands?
A - Good news! We’ve made it even easier and better value for families coming to visit us! We know that families come in all shapes and sizes which is why we’ve made our family pricing really flexible, giving you even more opportunities to save!
Our family offer starts with Family of Three wristbands with a maximum of 2 adults in the group.
From there you can add up to 5 extra people (adults and children) meaning that families as large as 8 can come to Pleasure Beach together.
Q - What is a Pleasure Beach Pass?
A - The £6 Pleasure Beach Pass is effectively an entry pass to the park for the entire day. Our guests can come and go all day as many times as they like and it includes rides on the Pleasure Beach Express, the Chinese Puzzle Maze, Bradley and Bella’s Learning Garden and the Spectacular Dancing Water Show. Many of our competitors do not provide the option to come in as an accompanying guest as they prefer to sell full price tickets or nothing at all. We appreciate that our exciting rides aren’t for everyone which is why we provide the option of a Pleasure Beach Pass to our guests.
Our guests also have the option to purchase a £10 Big One Ride Ticket which includes an all-day Pleasure Beach Pass as well as a voucher for any one ride of their choice, no matter how much it costs! We feel this provides excellent value to our guests for whom the decision to visit us was on the spur of the moment or who perhaps only have time for one ride. Anyone wishing to ride on additional rides can either purchase individual ride tickets or upgrade to a wristband once they’re on the park. The price of the Pleasure Beach Pass will be deducted from the upgrade transaction.
In recent years, Blackpool Pleasure Beach has invested considerably in improving the quality of the park’s environment and ambience. We provide relaxing garden spaces as well as indoor and outdoor cafés and restaurants in which our guests can grab a coffee and watch the world go by. Our guests’ enjoyment and satisfaction is of paramount importance to us which is why we strive to create a safe, fun and clean environment for them. We know that many of our guests appreciate this through the use of a Pleasure Beach Pass.
We hope we’ve been able to clear up a few misconceptions and we appreciate your continued support and input in making Pleasure Beach a great day out for the whole family. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter accounts for details of promotions and competitions which might make your visit even better value!
