Just towards the outskirts of Nickelodeon Land is Big Pizza Kitchen.
Its an all you can eat Pizza, Pasta and Salad buffet. We have been to something very similar in Alton Towers and its just perfect when you have little ones who just want to eat and get back on the rides. There is no waiting just help yourself. For me it wasn't as nice as Alton Towers one but my monkeys enjoyed it.
Next we walked over towards the Avalanche. This is another ride Big J loves to go on. Its a thrill ride but I wouldn't call it a rollercoaster. You are taken up on a track and then its a free fall ride designed like a bob sled.
Close by was the Eddie Stobart ride which is just a little truck ride. Little J liked this one too.
The Laughing Men.
It was back to Nickelodeon Land for more rides. We went on Bikini Bottom Tour and Dora's World Voyage. Then we met a few characters. There is a stage and characters come out for set times. We managed to meet Spongebob and Patrick and have our photo graph taken with them.
When we were paying for our photo little J escaped and crawled back towards the stage. I picked him up and tried to carry him away but he screamed. He loves meeting characters so much but it was someone else's turn. So I had to take him away. He got really upset so Spongebob ran over to see him and gave him a big kiss.
We also got the chance to meet Poppy cat too.
It was almost time for the Pleasure Beach to close so we headed to the Nickelodeon Shop to buy a souvenir before we had to go home. All the items were reasonably priced. Both boys chose a Spongebob souvenir.
Big J got the biggest Slush Puppie I had ever seen for the journey home.
It was almost 8 o'clock when we left so the sky was just about to go dark and all the lights came on.
Driving home and looking at the lights.
We had a lovely day at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Blackpool is only an hour drive away from us so not to bad for a day out.
So how much does it cost?
Like I said earlier Blackpool Pleasure Beach uses a wristband entry system. On the door a single wristband costs £29.99 for an adult and £26.99 for a child. If bought online before you go you can save upto £8 per wristband at the moment. Also you can opt for a family wristband which for us - 2 adults and 2 children would cost £80.
For us it was a nice change to visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach as we usually go to Alton Towers this time of year because we are Merlin Pass Holders so our entry is already paid for.
We will definitely visit again as usual as it is a nice day out and with Nickelodeon Land, there is lots more for little J to do there too.
You can always visit the website offers page before you plan to go to see if you can save any more money.
