Finding a day trip or short break destination that all the family will enjoy can be a challenge. If it’s Nan’s sort of pace, the kids might get bored; if the kids are excited, Grandad probably needs a lie down and, well, it would be nice if mum and dad enjoyed themselves too!
That’s where The Blackpool Big Ticket comes in. Allowing entry to seven fun filled attractions for one great price, it offers a great range of activities to suit the whole family – a perfect choice for a family day trip or a weekend break away.
Why not start your trip with a visit to The Blackpool Tower Eye? As well as stunning views, the Tower also offers a 4D cinema experience which tells the story of how Blackpool became such a popular resort. As the adults reminisce about their childhood visits to the seaside, the kids will be delighted by the incredible 4D cinema effects!
To experience more spectacular views, take the lift and travel the 380 feet to the top of The Blackpool Tower. Here you can step onto the SkyWalk, an incredible solid glass viewing platform from which you can spot all the famous landmarks old and new, whilst enjoying the amazing panorama.
By now the kids will probably be bursting with energy, so it’s time to head to the Jungle Jim’s, where the little ones can have heaps of fun in a children’s play area with an Aztec city theme. And while Dad keeps an eye on the kids, Mum and Nan might want to relax for a chat in the nearby Blackpool Tower Coffee Bar.
For an attraction that will enchant all the family, gather everyone back together and make Sea Life Blackpool your next stop. This incredible attraction has Europe’s largest collection of sharks, and is a delight for kids and adults alike.
Another firm favourite with all the family is The Blackpool Tower Circus. Resident clowns Mooky and Mr Boo will have the kids in stitches with their hilarious antics, while the adults will be transfixed by the incredible acrobats flown in from around the world to perform and by the astounding circus water finale!
Once the sun sets, the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations light up the Tower and the promenade. Autumn just wouldn’t be the same without a trip see this dazzling display – and this year's show is bigger than ever with a host of new and revamped displays. More than three million visitors a year can’t be wrong!
All of that might be enough excitement for one day. Luckily, the Blackpool Big Ticket lasts 90 days, which means you have lots of time to return in order to enjoy the remaining attractions.
And you won’t want to miss Madame Tussauds Blackpool, the ultimate celebrity experience, getting you up close and personal with Britain’s best-loved celebrities. You’ll be spoiled for photo opportunities. Encourage your loved ones to pose with their favourite stars and take some hilarious snaps for the family album!
Equally entertaining is The Blackpool Tower Dungeon. An interactive experience featuring plenty of laughs, the Dungeon takes visitors through ten shows, all focused on a different point in Lancashire’s history.
To experience the more elegant side of life, make sure you visit The Blackpool Tower Ballroom. Here you can relax in the sophisticated surroundings, listen to the Wurlitzer organ, watch people sweep gracefully around the dance floor, and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea of cakes, sandwiches and scones, the perfect end to your family break.
With such a great range of attractions, The Blackpool Big Ticket is a winning choice for family fun, where nostalgia and new adventures combine to create a trip that all the family will love.
