Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Amanda Thompson OBE, said: "We are thrilled to be named the UK's best amusement park in the UK by TripAdvisor, a trusted travel site where the views of our guests count for so much.

"We are constantly looking to improve the value for money we give our guests and this year, our 10-day advanced booking has proved to be a real advantage for people looking for a great day out without the expense.

"Blackpool Pleasure Beach prides itself on offering the best experience for a great day out and we want guests to leave here with memories that will last a lifetime!"
