we have just got confirmation of our holiday to Blackpool in Oct and I've been looking at the attractions there, they are soooo expensive!!
12 pound for the tower, 14 pound for the water park, 6 pound for model village, god knows how much the pleasure beach would end up costing! then theres the sealife centre, zoo etc etc. I know we dont have to do these things but i'm guessing the weather in october is not going to be up for cheap days on the beach and picnics in the park!
does anyone know if any of these attractions are worth the money? or if there are any hidden (cheaper!) gems to blackpool/surrounding area! there is only me, dh and 2yr old dd?
I'm not being a cheapskate really (honestly! ) but dont want our bargain holiday to end up costing the earth!
The tower is actually excellent value,includes soft play and a fab circus,you can stay the whole day.Lots of special offers about ,not sure where exactly as my sis organised all that but worked out about £8 a head
Pleasure beach adult wristbands about £28 but you dont need to pay to get in,you can just buy tokens for rides,with a 2 year old thats probably your best bet unless you and dh very keen to try rides
Stanley park is free,nice park with boating pond ,play parketc.
Water park is a bit pricey but you can spend a long time in it. Illuminations obviouly free!
The good thing is if weather is bad there is lots to do
Rangiel - I thought the Pleasure Beach had started charging an entrance fee now aswell as charging for the individual rides? Is that not the case? If not, it is probably worth a wander round, if you are stuck for something to do, as it is like a funfair (or at least it will be to your DD).
Also, I know shopping is probably not what you want to do, but they have just opened a brand new shopping centre in Blackpool. they have been building it for over 18 months so I am expecting something spectacular
