We are committed to helping guests with additional needs experience a spectacular and memorable visit to Pleasure Beach Resort


Pleasure Beach Resort is proud to partner with Nimbus Disability, operators of the Access Card scheme, who will now process all Essential Companion and EasyPass applications.

All applications must be completed online, at least 7 days prior to your visit. We are unable to accept any same day applications.

Nimbus Disability will individually review your supporting documentation and confirm your requirements to us via either an Access Card or Nimbus ID number.

It is really important that we ensure our Essential Companion and EasyPass services remain beneficial for those who simply could not visit Pleasure Beach Resort without them. Nimbus Disability have a robust, detailed application process, providing the opportunity to upload supporting documentation along with any information about the assistance you require in order to visit Pleasure Beach Resort.

Nimbus Disability will handle all your details safely and securely without Pleasure Beach Resort viewing the reason why you require additional assistance.

Please note that having a disability does not mean you will automatically receive either of these services.

Sensory Backpacks Now Available 

New for 2024, Sensory Backpacks are now available to hire from Ticket Sales.
Each Pleasure Beach branded backpack contains noise cancelling ear defenders and communication cards, along with complimentary bottled water and a copy of our Ride Access Guide. 
Sensory Backpacks can be hired for a refundable deposit of £20.00 or can be purchased for £30.00

Essential companion tickets

An Essential Companion ticket allows an additional person to enter the Park with a paying guest to assist with their visit free of charge. An Essential Companion will be issued with an e-Ticket allowing them full access to the Park and rides.

Following a successful application, an Essential Companion eTicket can be added to an existing online booking prior to a visit by our Access Team.

Please note that an Essential Companion ticket is different to a “Carer” eTicket that we issued in previous seasons. An explanation of this criteria is available on the Nimbus Disability website CLICK HERE

Essential Companion tickets are available for guests with a medical condition or disability, where support is needed that is significant and in excess of what could be reasonably expected of friends / family already accompanying the guest.

We allow one essential companion to accompany a paying guest into the Park who requires their assistance during their visit, if their Access Card or Nimbus ID carries the +1 symbol.

If eligible, two people can accompany the paying guest with the appropriate +2 symbol on their Access Card or Nimbus ID.

Essential Companions must be over 12 years of age. 

Easypass ride access

The EasyPass service is one of our reasonable adjustments for guests who are unable to stand in the main queue line whilst waiting to board a ride, due to medical reasons or disability.

Instead guests are placed in a virtual queue allowing them to wait comfortably before accessing the ride via the EasyPass entrance at their allocated time.

The EasyPass service does not allow immediate and unrestricted access to rides and is not a ‘queue jump’ service.

Guests who wish to reduce their queuing time should instead purchase SpeedyPass alongside each eTicket. VIP SpeedyPass reduces queuing time by 90%. Note – a mobile phone with internet data is required for this service. Click here for full details.

Click HERE for a simple guide to our EasyPass service.

Please be aware, the following rides are not available on the EasyPass service;

  • Avalanche
  • Ghost Train
  • Krusty Krab Order Up

The EasyPass service allows the guest who is unable to queue, plus one other guest to access the rides via the EasyPass entrance. A maximum of 2 additional guests can be added to the EasyPass at a charge of £5 per person, payable on the day at Guest Services.

How To Apply

  • All applications need to be submitted via the Nimbus Disability website at the link below.
  • Applications are free of charge for those guests who only wish to register their needs for ONE visit to Pleasure Beach Resort.  However, if eligible for an Access Card, you will also have the option to upgrade a Nimbus ID to a full Access Card at a cost of £15. Access Cards are valid for 3 years and can be used at thousands of locations across the UK and beyond, including other Amusement Parks who offer similar forms of assistance.

Our staff are no longer able to authorise same day additional assistance requests. Instead, all applications must be made online via the Nimbus Disability website, at least 7 days prior to your visit. Applications are still possible within 7 days, however this provides significantly less time for an application to be reviewed.

There is still a provision for guests to make a same day application via Nimbus Disability, however due to the robust processes in place, and the documentation/supporting information required for an application, this may take up to one hour. Therefore, we strongly recommend applications are submitted in advance in order to avoid delays.

Please note, our staff are unable to review or approve any supporting documentation presented on arrival other than a valid Access Card or an email containing a Nimbus ID for a visit to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and any such requests will be declined.

For further details regarding Nimbus Disability and the Access Card scheme, please visit 

All guests entering Blackpool Pleasure Beach – including disabled guests – must purchase either an Adult (12+) or Junior (11 & Under) eTicket to do so. There are no concession prices for disabled guests.

Essential Companions cannot be added during the booking process online currently. If you are eligible for an Essential Companion ticket (there is a +1 symbol on your Access Card or Nimbus ID), you must purchase tickets online for all other members of your party, then follow the instructions above to provide your Nimbus details to our Access Team so an Essential Companion ticket can be added to the existing booking.

If you do not require or qualify for an Essential Companion ticket, you will purchase tickets for all members of your visiting party.

Facilities and services

We recognise that some guests require additional assistance from a service animal in order to visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach, therefore, assistance animals and guide dogs are permitted to enter the Park.

However, due to our unique environment, the following requirements apply:

  • Owners must be in control of their animal at all times.
  • The animal must remain on a non-extendable lead whilst inside the Park.
  • The animal cannot be left unattended at any time.
  • Animals are not permitted to enter a ride carriage.
  • Whilst we do not have a designated area for animals to expel waste, we require all animal owners to dispose of any waste immediately.

We reserve the right to request proof of training and to refuse access to untrained animals due to the health and safety risk they pose to both guests and staff. 

Please note, due to the nature of our attraction, Blackpool Pleasure Beach has crowded spaces, secure entrances and exits, unusual lighting, noises and smells, special effects and involves interaction with a range of mechanical devices. Please bear this information in mind when planning your visit.

We have a limited number of wheelchairs for hire for use inside the Park.

Wheelchairs can only be obtained in person on the day of your visit from either Ticket Sales or Guest Services.

A refundable deposit of £20 is required, plus a £5 hire charge.

Changing facilities can be found in Nickelodeon Land behind the SpongeBob Splash Bash ride, to the left of the
Nickelodeon Land Shop.

Radar key access is required, however for those guests without a Radar key, a toilet attendant can be summoned by pressing the button outside the changing room. The changing facilities include a fully adapted adult restroom, adult changing bed, hoist (guests should use their own harness) and an emergency assistance alarm.


Bradley and Bella’s Learning Garden, situated underneath the Avalanche ride, is a magical area where children and families can explore, learn about plants and flowers and take some time to relax during the day.
