Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Blackpool Pleasure Beach has been continually re-investing in new rides and the development and upgrading of the park. In 1990 the exterior of the grounds were re-designed and a brand new Edwardian style cosmopolitan shopping complex created along the Promenade - Ocean Boulevard. 1994 saw the biggest investment to date with the opening of the £12 million Pepsi Max Big One, the world's tallest, fastest rollercoaster. This was followed in 1995 with a £2 million investment to create a brand new cabaret and hospitality venue, The Paradise Room, showing once again the commitment of the Thompsons to provide world-beating quality rides and entertainment. 1997 again saw another U.K. first - the 210 foot, £2 million PlayStation™ - The Ride. Blackpool Pleasure Beach remains Britain's number one tourist attraction, with over 7.1 million visitors now travelling to Britain's No. 1 Resort Theme Park every year.
Re-Opens in March for weekends (Sat & Sun) and from Easter 7days

The Syndicate Superclub.
Around 4 million pounds has been invested creating 100+ jobs. 51 local contractors have been working since May 2002, with 220 tons of steel, 137mts concrete, thousands of miles of cabling and endless amounts of timber.
Over half a million pounds has been spent on the sound system that has been commissioned to Ohm and custom built for the Syndicate and they are using the rig as their show piece to prospective customers.
With the shifting trends in clubland The Syndicate Superclub is a bold statement to the rest of the industry proving that “it aint what you do, it’s the way that you do it” and that imagination is just as important as knowledge. From the birth and through to the opening night it is the vision of the Nordwind family to put back into Blackpool a quality club that the town can be proud of and with the announcement of huge Las Vegas style casinos and several nightlife brands investing heavily in the town The Syndicate Superclub is opening at a time of great excitement and anticipation for the town.
Located on Church Street near the Winter Gardens it is a “must see” club.

The Canasta Hotel is a very relaxed and friendly place. We only stayed for a couple of nights but enjoyed the atmosphere and the company of other guests. [View more comments]
