Half Price Wristbands for WOW Weekends 8 January 2019 by Visit Blackpool Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s acclaimed WOW Weekends are back! The hotly anticipated, half price wristbands provide unrivalled value, with access to all of the thrills and spills of the UK’s favourite amusement park for just £19.50, when booked online in advance and visiting between February 16th and March 31st 2019. Opening in time for the February half term weekend, get ahead of the rest and experience all the thrills of the park, including the UK’s most exciting rollercoaster – ICON. Launched in May 2018, ICON is the world’s most interactive rollercoaster and delivers an exhilarating experience as visitors are catapulted forward at speeds of a Formula One racing driver, cutting through The Big One and twisting around the Steeplechase and Big Dipper so close riders’ nerves are guaranteed to be tested. Just when you think you’ve paused to catch your breath, you’re off again, projected forward at a staggering speed of 80KM/H. Combine the experience with a ride on The Big One, where you’ll reach dizzying heights and enjoy incredible views of the town and coast below, or see the world turned upside down on the Revolution. Families looking to experience all of the fun will enjoy a visit to the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land loaded with 12 rides and attractions, where little ones can meet their favourite TV characters including PAW Patrol and enjoy a ride on SpongeBob’s Splash Bash. A ride on the world’s first Wallace & Gromit ride, Thrill-O-Matic, sees the fun continue. Amanda Thompson OBE, Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, commented: “We can’t wait to throw open the park gates and welcome the start of the 2019 season. Our WOW Weekend wristbands really do have the wow factor, providing thrill seekers with the incredible opportunity to experience all the rides for just half the price, including ICON. Wristbands are available to book online now, so come and be the first to join us at the start of an incredible season.” Blackpool Pleasure Beach opens on Saturday 16th February and will be open every Saturday and Sunday to follow until March 31st.
