Rides



4D Cinema
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
  • Under 8 years must be accompanied by a responsible person

Now Showing - New for 2014 - The Good, The Bad and a Horse!

Far more than just a cinema - feel the full force of a 4D experience.

3D imagery and special effects of lighting, moving seats, water sprays, air blasts, leg ticklers, smells and bubbles make our film 'The Good, The Bad and a Horse' an unforgettable experience.

The film - about 10 minutes long - is shown daily throughout the season. Our cinema is wheelchair friendly.

Big Apple Coaster
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1 metre

The Big Apple Coaster promises high-speed fun for children.

Four passengers sit in each of the caterpillar train's six cars as they rumble round an undulating 138m steel track.

It's the perfect first taste of a rollercoaster for any child.

Before it arrived at the Pleasure Beach in 1998, The Big Apple Coaster, made by Pinfari in 1982, was a favourite at Alton Towers.

Bonanza
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1 metre
  • May ride under this height if accompanied
Cups & Saucers
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
  • Must be accompanied if under 0.9 metres
Disko
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.2 metres

Experience the unique sensation of the spectacular Disko as you look out across the Pleasure Beach.

This ride's unusual feature is that the 24 riders face outwards sitting in a circle.

As the Disko starts to spin, it runs along a curved track from side-to-side in a 'U' shape that gives riders a "unique sensation".

Visually stunning, the Disko was produced by Zamperla and has been at the Pleasure Beach since 2004.

Dodgems
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1 metre & 1.2 metres (driver)

Old favourites never go out of fashion. Our dodgems are as popular today as they were when the track was laid in 1968.

The cars have been replaced over the years though!

Each car takes two passengers.

Drag Cars
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
Evolution
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.3 metres

Another big favourite. Evolution carries riders 20 metres into the sky on its giant arm – as the cars revolve 90 degrees on their axis.

Up to 40 passengers revolve in the cars as the 'arm' raises through its arc thrilling its riders way above the ground.

Family Star Spinning Coaster
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.3 metres

The Spectacular Spinning Coaster 'Family Star' arrived here at the Pleasure Beach in 2013 and has already become one of the most popular rides on the park, spinning thrillseekers into a frenzy of excitement!!

Formula One
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
Fun House

  • May ride under this height if accompanied
  • Minimum Height: 1.1 metres
  • No open-toe shoes permitted
Gallopers
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
  • Must be accompanied if under 0.9 metres

A traditional ride that never loses its appeal. The 30 horses and 2 chariots made by Savage's in 1901 inspire nostalgia and has been carrying riders for well over 100 years.

Go-Karts
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.3 metres
  • Wristbands are not valid on this ride - Tokens Only
Haunted Hotel
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms

Log Flume
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.1 metres

The log flume with its plunges and splashes was an instant success when it opened in front of the main gate in 1989.

It remains one of our most popular rides and is a great way to cool off on a hot summer's day.

Travelling along water-filled circuits, passengers in fibreglass boats – up to five per boat – feel a full force plummet after conveyor belts pull them up to 5, 8, then 11 metres before they plunge to ground level giving the riders a real soaking.

Monorail
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.25 metres
  • May ride under this height if accompanied
Mulan
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.25 metres

This fast ride spins its riders into the dark.

The Mulan - or 'caterpillar' because it looks like a giant one - spins passengers round and round on an undulating track before a canopy sends passengers into darkness.

Pirate Ship
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.1 metres

This huge swinging gondola is another fantastic ride from Zamperla acquired from Whitley Bay in 2001.

Up to 33 passengers can swing on an A-frame way into the air controlled by one large hydraulically driven tyre on a pivoted beam, with another large tyre controlling the braking.

Raft Ride
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.25 metres
  • May ride under this height if accompanied
Roller Coaster
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
  • Must be accompanied if under 0.9 metres

Undoubtedly the star attraction at the Pleasure Beach is our traditional wooden rollercoaster.

Opened in 1932, visitors return year after year to enjoy the thundering ride they remember as children.

Built in France in 1928, it has a single pull-up and once the train has left the top it travels under gravity until it arrives back at the station thrilling every passenger.

Three trains can be used on the track at one time with 30 people riding in each train. A seated operator controls the brakes at the rear of the first carriage on each train. Unusually there are no brakes fitted to the track at all.

Safari Train
Restrictions:
  • Must be accompanied if under 0.9 metres
  • No babies in arms
Sky-Drop
Restrictions:
  • Minimum Height: 1.2 metres

Standing 22 metres tall above the seafront fun is our magnificent Skydrop.

Shipped in from Italy where it was made by leading ride designer and producer Zamperla, the Skydrop opened in 2004 and its pneumatic cylinders launch 16 passengers at a time into the sky for panoramic views of the beach, sea, town, seafront attractions and for miles around.

Snails and Fairy Tales
Restrictions:
  • No babies in arms
  • Must be accompanied if under 0.9 metres

Children - and grown ups too - adore riding in our snails among favourite fairy tale, nursery rhyme and cartoon characters through magical scenes indoors and out.

They especially love the famous giant who stands guard outside. The snails have been at the Pleasure Beach since 1966 and were manufactured by Wadbrooke/Bottons.
