Burger King is available at the park. There are also many other quick-service places and sit-down restaurants offering a wide variety of selections.
Operating Season
Blackpool has a long operating season starting with weekends in February and March, expanding into daily operations in April, and scaling back to weekends only in November.
Access & Location
Blackpool is certainly a working-class retreat and also a favorite destination for bachelor (stag) and bachelorette (hen) parties. Crowds can be a little rough around the edges.

From the M6 motorway, exit at Junction 32 onto the M55. At the end of the M55, follow signs for Blackpool, South Shore (via Blackpool Airport) and then follow the brown tourist signs to the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool.

Direct train service exists from both London and Manchester.
Nearby Lodging
The Big Blue Hotel borders the park and is one of the nicer hotels in Blackpool. This affiliated hotel offers patrons discounted pricing on all-day wristbands.
Virtual Queue Options
Speedy Pass is offered at three different levels
It's up to you if you want to call Spectacular Dancing Water a show, but the other offerings at the park (ice show and magic show) are upcharges.
