We have a variety of cafes and restaurants on site, and schools are also welcome to bring a packed lunch with them on their visit.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach also has a fantastic choice of retail shops including the UK's only Nickelodoen Land shop and the world's only Wallace and Gromit shop.
Accessibility & Disabled Facilities
Disabled toilets are available in the Education Academy and across the park itself. For those guests who have a recognised medical condition which prevents them from being able to queue, we are able to offer a ride wristband which allows the wearer and one other person to enter the ride via the exit or Speedy Pass gate. The ride staff will then permit entry when safe to do so.
Pleasure Beach will do everything possible to ensure its guests have a safe and pleasurable stay. However, certain rides and attractions in our Park are physically demanding and vigorous.
For further information, a guide for guests with disabilities is available to download from the website.
