Late Night Riding at Blackpool Pleasure Beach

On Saturday 1 May, Blackpool Pleasure Beach will be open until 10pm for May Day Bank Holiday weekend fun during the first Late Night Riding event of the year. For one great price, all guests can enjoy their favourite rides after dark and experience the spectacle that is Blackpool Pleasure Beach illuminated at night.

With the park open until 10pm guests can ride into the night on the UK’s tallest rollercoaster, the Big One, check out the twists, turns and acceleration of ICON at twilight, enjoy a night race on the Grand National and ride into dusk on the Big Dipper. Whatever thrills take your fancy, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is the place to be.

Younger riders can meet up with Paw Patrol, SpongeBob SquarePants, and other characters at the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land with its 12 amazing rides.  From there they can check out the world’s first Wallace & Gromit ride, Thrill-O-Matic. 

The FY4 area of Blackpool Pleasure Beach meanwhile, home to on-park entertainment, will host its very own resident DJ.

If guests purchase an e-Ticket for 1 May, they can enjoy all the fun Blackpool Pleasure Beach has to offer, from 10am right through to 10pm.  That’s 12 hours of fantastic fun and thrills for the whole family.

This is just the beginning of the Late Night Riding events at Blackpool Pleasure Beach for 2021.  There are another 10 events scheduled throughout the year.

Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Amanda Thompson OBE, said: “Our Late Night Riding events are always extremely popular with guests who want to enjoy the extended opening hours and then the fantastic fireworks display.  I hope that many people take the opportunity to ride their favourite rides after dark.”
