Wallace & Gromit have been getting into the traditional seaside spirit at Blackpool Pleasure Beach!
The dynamic duo have been chief tasters for their new cheese-flavoured Moon Rock which is on sale at the 42-acre attraction.
Pleasure Beach have commissioned cooks to come up with a tasty treat for guests to try when they experience Wallace & Gromit’s brand new Thrill-O-Matic ride which has its grand opening on April 24th.
Tasting sessions have been taking place for months with batches being tried out on palates to make sure the ingredients are just right before they went on general sale.
Our first preview riders gave Thrill-O-Matic the thumbs up! If you are a Preview Ride ticket holder you can still use your ticket any day before the Wallace & Gromit ride has its Grand Opening on April 24th. We hope you enjoy it too!
So, who fancies a new ride then? Well…. today Blackpool Pleasure Beach is delighted to announce the Thrill-O-Matic, the UK’s only Wallace & Gromit ride which is due to open next year! Here’s a sneak peek, there’ll be plenty more to come!!!
Great picture showing our British Olympians switching on the Blackpool Lights
I love this picture taken early evening over looking the comedy carpet
Every year just before the Blackpool Illuminations switch on, The town of Blackpool get to see the lights before anyone else and are invited to ‘Ride The Lights’
Every age from toddlers to pensioners do so and here is a fantastic picture to show you.
