Are you calling me a tramp? Would you like to take this outside?

(In all seriousness, it's really not that bad. It's just the place on a whole is a wee bit tacky but it's fun! Just enjoy it) :D

Just don't venture near the tower at night, especially on a Saturday night, due to all the stag/hen parties, and all the clubbers up there :lol: Stay in PBB, unless venturing to South/Central Pier, and avoid all ticket touts! Prefably buy on-line if you can :)

PBB's a fun place, enjoy it!

Ooo just one extra piece of advice, if your planning on making a night out after i would like to say i would recommend the Pleasure Beach shows themselves especially Forbidden but actually, if you really want to see something that is incredibly funny and amazing entertainment then i would go for Funny Girls, im not sure exactly where it is, but it was fantastic and something i thought i wouldn't like but because a family member knows the owner we got a free entry and im so happy we did because i've never laughed so much in my life and also the most highly entertaining show i've seen in my life.

I've been aprehensive since my sister's boyfriend told me he was with some mates on the beach one evening and a tramp came to them and asked for money... (cruelly, my sister's boyfriend dismissed her and the tramp screamed a curse...:P)...they laughed and said no and he took a knife out and held it at his throat. :shock:

Just wanted to be assured the park iself was safer, which you have done. Thanks guys.:D

avoid the prize games stalls too - most of them they "store" your points for your next go, and make promises like "just one more go, and I'll make it worthwhile!" One of them got 45 quid out of me on my first visit!

Watch out for the wind, the sea, tramps, trams and druggies. Bout it really! :P

Nah, really Blackpool is ok. I mean, I've been there at night walking back from the central pier, and I've had no problems at all.

Blackpool is like anywhere really. You get chavs hanging round the off-license, a few piss heads walking around, one or two insane people and the generally alright people.

Except for Sunderland, Newcastle, Liverpool and Glasgow...

LOL!!!

This is ridiculous! I was under the impression they were try to promote a less chavy image and hope for a better type of cliental?

I like how it says "£1.75 Includes free hot water & a fork" :lol: :lol:

Have a word with yourself Amanda :shock:

I must get some noodles from there when I go later this year, it looks great, and for only £1.75! I'd pay an extra £1 for a fork but if they're giving them out for free then that's fine! :lol:

That is totally ridicules. So tasteless of the management that decided to put that in, but then again, you don’t see many other parks with three of their main attractions named after drinks :lol: . And how do they get off with charging about £1 extra than you could get in a shop!?!?

That just makes the place look tacky, just as they were trying to improve their image. Also, they already have a Chinese bar selling noodles and stuff, why take business away from that with this cheap idea. Now you will have a load of people walking around the park with pot noodles. :roll:

Having said that, I do like pot noodles and will probably be a sucker next time I go and buy one. :lol:

Ooh thats rather generous :shock:! I would of made people bring there own hot water along with them...! I wonder if they will be stingy with the water though, as some people have a preference as to how much water they like in their pot noodles! Some like it moist & some like it dry!

If I dared to get down and dirty and eat a pot noodle ever again I would actually buy one I think. I think its quite a good idea to be honest...
