Amazing thank you for these POVs ! Great to have you back in the uk, hope you enjoyed it !!🎢🙏
Not far from black pool I am.One day I might go to pleasure beach with my family on the rides
@Jack H why of course
@Flynn 07 surely low gravity just means the plane work quicker
@Jack H SPACE👽👽
@Flynn 07 Ye that's true bloody expensive though all this space shuttle stuff wtf is wrong with a Boeing 737 like it can't be that far away I can see it
BPB is such an underrated park, sure the rides are vintage and old but you got to appreciate how well looked after the rides and park is in general
I don think that BPB is considered underrated. Quite the opposite in fact. I think many enthusiasts will rank the BPB very high. The legacy and history is important factor. But as a Central European the location of Blackpool is quite complicated for me.
@Jo Jo kimutai that's fine
😂cant disagree more
I worked at Blackpool pleasure Beach for many years. I worked as a ride operator and I worked on maintenance in the winter. The engineers, electricians and joiners are an amazing bunch of men and ladies. Safety is always of paramount importance. Just because its got rust on doesn't mean its not safe and it is the seaside.
@kylorensrevenge Well Said.
I was born and raised in Blackpool and as a child you was allowed to just roam around for free and they used to use old fashioned ticket stubs, many great memories! I was quite annoyed when Infusion replaced the log flume but it's good to see they pay some homage to the old ride, BPB is and will always be amazing! The park itself is super small in comparison to some theme parks out there and as you can see they use up every inch they can with the rides, old or new it all just blends seamlessly and I'm so proud to say I'm a seasider!! 🎢🇬🇧🥰
Love it there, but when I went there was a few crack eds about but I always had a boss time , and they never bothered me or my family ever , great times as a kid.. I met a girl there too lil holiday romance hahaha thinking we was In love... good times
@Mark Rowley yea I live in UK and it used to be like a fair you roamed around and u payed on rides
I love watching the revolution go upside-down
I love the log flume. Coming in 2weeks n not been since I was 24, over 20+ yrs. Goin b eye opener
Robb having a conversation with himself as *the tunnel* was content I didn’t know I needed 😂
I really want to visit this park one day. I just love how so many of the coasters crossover and intertwine around each other. Just a big hodgepodge of track, like something from the RCT parks I used to make back when I was a kid (which is funny because BPB was included in the game in one of the old expansion packs).
You should definitely visit! It's so amazing!
Blackpool pleasure beach rollercoasters may not be the biggest or most thrilling in the world but they do an awesome job at preserving old woodies. It would be a damn shame to lose these legendary coasters that paved the way for many of the coasters we have today.
@Andy Yates I would replace Infusion with an RMC cuz not much people like the ride, but Grand National would be a good one
@Ginger Guinea-Pig from one of the Guineas Converting it would bring in so many visitors - its old and bad - RMC coasters are the future, get over it. it wont happen anyway, theres not enough room for the supports there.
@Andy Yates oh bugger off,it’s rickety and hurts like hell but that’s the charm of it,converting it would devastate me cause that’s my childhood on that ride mate
I used to work at the Pleasure Beach. Track on all the woodies is checked daily and replaced as required.
I wouldn't say any of the woodies are smooth, they all shake you to death. Nature of the beast 😁
The thing is they acc do have amazing thrilling and big rides tho and they’re awesome you can’t fault blackpool like the icon and Pepsi max ice blast all quality infusion too
I love how you don't hold back. You don't feel embarassed for "acting like a child" or anything, and that's great.
Enamored. The coasters have been amazing but the use of of land, the park itself and moments of the other rides is astounding. I would love to walk around and watch all the different sections when multiple rides are interwoven. Lastly, I laughed my butt off at "Victory is mine"! Thank you for that one 😆
Wow, these rides were awesome! I felt like I was on them just by watching! :D
These coasters feel fresh and fun... lots of things I never quite seen before. Love it.
LOVE these park tours. Harkens back to the way back videos cut to music and having a great time!
Also, God I love how tight and in each other's way all the attraction are at Blackpool. Bucketlist for sure!!
Blackpool Pleasure Beach is awesome
It's like somebody was playing Rollercoaster Tycoon - and you get to ride their creations for real!
So many rides, in such a small space ... the way they put in Icon is a masterpiece of engineering and planning, twisting through the existing rides, and the fact that it is a brilliant ride as well ... the added spinning seats seems like lots of fun, but you probably pay extra for the privelege, otherwise the queue would be horrendous.
It's nice to see the rides again. Gone are the days when you wander round and just ride the rides you wanted. Spend money in the park and have a wander. This is probably the only way I will see them now.
Amazing thanks for the pov's. I would love to visit that park some day. Also, seeing steeplechase brought me back to my childhood and riding Soapbox Derby at Knott's Berry Farm.
I adore this park! amazing POV's!!
Great video Rob. It’s nice to see you back in UK parks! Great quality content as always 😊
Blackpool is a great Theme Park (you can get through it under 7 hours), really fun footage of the coasters (last time I visited was 2008!) ❤️😊
I've been going to Blackpool now for over 35 years. The oily, greasy smells on the old wooden roller coasters takes me back to being a child again
You could tell Robb genuinely enjoyed the spinning car on icon based on his reaction
Such a shame you guys didn't get to ride The Wild Mouse. I have ridden rollercoasters all over the world avidly since a kid and the Wild Mouse in BPP is the only one that actually scared me. Am sure it was safe but it just felt like a rickety-rackety death trap! It used to have warnings saying it was the scariest ride too and people would be "yeah.... yeah.... whatever...." I loved seeing their shell-shocked pale faces (sometimes green) as they got off!
Wild mouse was removed unfortunately. But yeah that was a cool ride. Was gutted when I found out it was gone.
Love this video! I have very very fond memories of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and the rest of Blackpool too - I used to visit most years as a kid with my parents and grandparents and I still love the place now - there are memories everywhere I turn there and there’s a unique atmosphere at the Pleasure Beach that I just can’t describe. Icon is also an amazing ride and just what the park needed!
Wheee! This video is the new standard of POV, this is amazing!!! Whoo! As far as I know, you invented this and am blown away with this reinvention. I love the stabilized, wide-angle look! I think it looks like how I see with peripherals, all on one screen, as if I were there. Top notch! Wheee! West Coast Bash '22?
Glad to see you guys back in the UK! Enso looks fantastic
its so cool to have you in the uk! ive grown up around these rollercoasters and have never been to america, so i watch your videos. it makes me happy your going on these rides
Brilliantly filmed as always, I appreciate your enthusiasm too, it's a joy to watch :D
funny white american christian man with funny commentary voice
One of the best retro coaster parks in the world!
It's a charming old seaside theme park.
It's got so much character I love it there. I try to go every year.
I have great memories of the big dipper because it was the first rollercoaster i went on with my friends at BPPB :)
Man, don’t tell me The Wild Mouse has gone?? That ride was epic. I thought the signs were lying when they said “this really is a white knuckle ride” 😂
I have ridden rollercoasters all over the world avidly since a kid and the Wild Mouse in BPB is the only one that actually scared me. Am sure it was safe but it just felt like rickety-rackety death trap! having said that back in 1988 we had to be rescued off the old Log Flume as it got stuck on the first ascent going up. We had to climb down ladders we found hilarious but they gave us such big books with tickets for free rides it took us (and friends and family) over 2 years to 'spend' them all!
@VixenWarrior Sad times 😞
wild mouse was removed in 2018
Wow, Icon is a long ride. Looks fun!
What a great video including all the rollercoasters at this unique amusement park - Blackpool Pleasure Beach! It looks like an amazing park!
As a person who lives 10 minutes away from the park, it is a very special place as there isn’t a ride quite like any of them and it’s a super underrated park
When you sit in a rollercoaster with a friend that knows everything about every coaster
that was great nice to see all coasters operating especially the grand national Rollercoaster
What were your thoughts of icon vs other coasters you've done that are similar? Also do you prefer it on the enso seat :)
Good to see some UK park content hope you enjoyed :D
Lovely to see you here in the UK/Blackpool! - you sound cool guys - hope you had a great time!
Oddly enough, i first heard about Blackpool because a streamer i watch landed there in a game called Geoguessr. It seems quite interesting and this is such a charming park!
@BOUNCER BABE 1982
I worked there until 2002
I live in Blackpool and have done since I was 17 (I'm 40 now). I came here for the very first time, with my dad, in 1993. The Big one was under construction and I fell in love with the place from that moment. I returned to Blackpool in October 1994, when the big one was brand new. I told dad, back in 93 that one day I would live here. In 96 I came again then in 99, I came for a holiday and never returned home. The rest is history as they say. I immediately started work there and worked there until 03. It is amazing. A fantastic place to work and you really get the feeling that it was a family run business.
Looks like this park is all about coasters… very nice! Thanks for the video👍🏻
It has dark rides too, the Ghost trai Alice in Wonderland, Valhalla ( indoor water ride) and others
They have got some flat rides, including the "Flying Machines," the oldest ride on the Pleasure Beach.
I'm from the USA but I would totally love to spend a day at this park. I wanna try Icon and Pepsi Max....
@Goose5242 Yes standing in line is the worst part
the queues are MASSIVE especially for the icon. i waited about 1 and a half hours just to do it ONCE. Totally worth the wait tho
Thanks Robb for the experience. I had a chance 3 weeks ago to visit Prater and just couldn't get there. One of these days!
Wow! They really updated the graphics! It almost looks real!
Great video! Did you not get to ride Big One and Grand National this time round to experience the recent re-tracking - those were the only two that were older POVs?
That's correct. They were both closed during our visit. It would have been nice to ride them again, but I've probably taken at least 100 laps on each ride over the years so I wasn't too bothered by missing them, and we will likely be back again next year.
Great Video Guy's. Loved the commentary too. I am currently working on an in-depth special about the Big Dipper, keep a look out for it very soon 😀
I swear there was a ride like this at Six Flags in Gurnee,IL in the early 90's called Rolling Thunder. I remember it as a kid and loved it
Some of the coasters I have never seen with strange designs and styles. Thank you for sharing.
My aunt is from Blackpool. She and my uncle married there in the 80s. At that time, as I was 7, I don't remember much as far as any rides. Then again, it was also January. It's so cool to see how it is now.
I have lived in Blackpool since 1999. The pleasure beach has evolved so much. I loved working here
the grand national looked fun from your pov but when i rode on it at the end of july it was a horrible experience despite having over 30 years of experience of the grand national. it was one of my favourite rides but this time when i went on it i thought i almost injured myself as it was the most shakiest of rides i had sat on. it was like the giant version of the now discontinued wild mouse. in my opinion it needs to be dismantled and forgotten about, its had its time. how was it for you ?
I would be heartbroken to see it go with such a rich history, but yeah you need a new spine after riding
Exactly it hits my back and it’s been 2 months now
This park will forever be Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 IRL
p.s. Icon is a long ride!
'Avalanche' random factoid: the bends and turns on that ride were named by park-goers in a competition prior to its opening.
went on it after it opened and left with a bruised spine. 😛
Steeplechase is my fave ride - but these days, I'm more content with PoV videos. I'm now the 'designated coat holder'.
That Grand National ride omg i remember it as a kid! my dad and older bro in the blue and me and my younger brother in the red haha 22 years go! :)
Would love to visit here, Thorpe Park, and Alton Towers. That would be a nice UK trip. Can't forget some of the other awesome parks in Europe such as Phantasialand, Energylandia, PortAventura, Walibi Holland, and more that I just cannot think of right now. OMG. I NEED TO GET OUT THERE.
I’m going to Alton Towers on 20th August
@Clementine I just wish I wasn't on the other side of the Atlantic
you HAVE to get down to alton towers i 100% recommended it to anyone
@YouNameIt And that
Great video! I like the horsey ride, and on Grand National when we can see the cars on the other track! Thanks!
i already know you were driving every brit on those rides insane but thanks for the cool povs anyway
Now this was fun…one of those spirals made me a bit dizzy 🥴
Robb!!!! When are you guys coming to Sydney again?!? Have you tried our new Big Dipper at Luna Park? :D Unfortunately there aren't many coasters in sydney :'( But we would LOVE to watch you ride the Big Dipper!!
Really enjoyed your video! I wouldn't ever get on a roller coaster unless it was 5 ft high.
I went on all the rollercoasters at Blackpool yesterday and my favourite has to be icon it was so iconic
I enjoyed the pleasure beach it was so fun!!
I've rode some great coasters in florid and the UK and the grand national is up there with the best of them
My parents met @ Blackpool Beach on a coaster named the Black Velvet during WWII. They married soon after and had 4 kids (I was #2). They were married 52 years till death did they part. I visited BPB in 1961 when visiting my grandmother who lived in West Hartlepool on the east coast of England.
Thanks for the memories!
P.S. My dad brought his war bride home to Richmond, VA USA where us kids were born and raised.
I remember going on so many of these rides back in 2019 I miss it ngl
My best rollercoaster was the grand national thanks for showing us all the other great rollercoasters there is
Infusion looks terrorfying, like they all look fun but that one is some scary mess, only been on one roller coaster in my life so far, Fireball, just a giant loop and it stops at the top for a bit before coming back down, that was terrorfying for my first one but maybe when they come back through I can try the other one that doesn't have loops too hell and back lol
What a beaut park!
I loved the 1st one and the 4th,and last ones, so much air time on these coasters👍👍🤣
In my opinion go on the higher/highest first if you nervous it really helps you with all the other drops
Wow Icon seems like a long ride!
Enso is a multi launch coaster and extreme spinning coaster combined basically
My home town 😊 I’ll be back one day, I rode the Big One before they realigned/changed the first drop. Spin Doctor was the best ride there (not there anymore).
Infusion is my favourite ride ❤
Bro I could watch these forever!
Knotts Berry Farm had a similar Steeplechase type ride back in the 70's if I remember correctly.
I went to BPB last Friday and oh my.... the grand national retrack has made that ride so much worse. I came off in so much pain, the whiplash up the first hill after the double down, being smashed down that the restraints tightened to a point where i couldnt breathe. Awful
However, the big one running smoother than ever, very much enjoyed that.
We saw you at Alton Towers the next day (6th of April)! You were behind us to ride Nemesis in the backrow but the moment we boarded they closed off the last row. You had to take the second to last row. I wasn't sure it was you but I'm sure now. Did they explain why the last row suddenly got closed?
We went to Blackpool the next day with loads of rides closed. We were told steeplechase was closed for a couple of days because a branch fell on the rails. I'm surprised to see you were still able to ride two days before we went. Such a shame The Big One was closed but it was understandable with that weather. Shame, we were most hyped for that one.
Revolution was by far the biggest surprise though, that ride certainly delivered an intense experience that I wasn't expecting.
Oh you should have said hello! Yeah, I think it was due to the disabled riders with the pass. No worries. We ended up getting the back row later and no matter where you sit Nemesis is always a great ride!
Have you ever ridden Helix at Göteborg’s (Sweden) Liseberg? AWESOME COASTER!!
LOVE ROLLER COASTERS WITH ALL MY HEART
What time of the year is best for visiting bpb? I visited back in april 2019 but we purchased a skip-queue pass, based in your footages it looks like some days are much slower than those days we visited in april. what is the secret?
Icon is amazing.
Growing up In Southport (about an hour away from Blackpool) we used to have the UK’s largest wooden coaster before it burnt down.. :/
Grand National vintage footage in 2006! The year when Dale Winton switched on the Blackpool Illuminations!
I tried to go on a roller coaster at Blackpool about 20 years ago when I visited to watch an FA Cup match. I went to the rollercoaster (probably The Big One) before the match but I was too early. I bought a ticket for the coaster then went to the game. I got back to the Pleasure Beach before they closed for the afternoon, but they wouldn't let me in (presumably people don't enter half an hour before closing). I knocked on the door to try to get the attention of the three women on the entry desk. They pretended to not notice me. All I wanted was one ride, that I'd already paid for. 20 years later, I'm still bitter about it. Never went back. But at least Yeovil won.
I am visiting for my first time on Thursday an u must say big one and icon are defo the coasters that intrigue me the most
I love it that he's calm and the girl hahahah🤣🤣😂😂
Glad you enjoyed your time here in Blackpool. Most of you Americans don't even know where Blackpool even is when I go to Orlando and tell them I live there!
Icon looks so smooth.
That second one is Barmy...thanks for this seeing what's changed since I was there last 👍⭐️⭐️⭐️
I’ve Gotta Say That My Fave Ride Is Icon, It Is Smooth And Cool And Is Speedy And Very Fun!!!! 😀😀😀😀
Revolution remined me of "Lighting Loops" at Great Adventure
You need to do a review on that new roller coaster called the Jada. I heard it's a real slapper lol!
this looks like a " steeple ride with 🎠 carousel horses 🎠
That was awesome and I am going in 2 weeks so I will experience it to!
proof roller coasters can turn any adult into a little kid again
my favourite ride in the uk by far
Big Dipper is hauling!!
4 Woodies at one park!? You don’t see that often. Most parks are lucky to have 1
Random fact: Thunderation at SDC and Ice Mountain Bobsleds at Enchanted Forest are 2 more coasters that have a double chainlift
@idkwhattoputhere Yeah I thought the same thing
@Theme Park Review Oh wooden? Uhhhhhh I haven't seen many other than Tister and I think The Beast has 2?
There are many steel coasters that double double lift hills, but I couldn't think of many other wooden roller coasters other than Twister at Knoebels.
These youtube POVs look nothing like irl. They look much taller irl.
Is icon a good beginner coaster for someone who hasn't done inversions before?
I love theses videos!
