Blackpool Bash 2024 - Nautical Theme!
Dates: April 5th - April 7th 2024
Location: Blackpool, UK
Everybody say “Blackpooool”. Yes it’s time for our annual pilgrimage to Blackpool packed with ERS’s, 2 shows, lunch and a party! Come along and be part of our biggest, most famous, action packed, super fun, Coaster Crazy weekend of them all. The 2024 theme is 'Nautical' so get planning your outfits for the Saturday night party!
The weekend of non-stop action starts with ‘Friday Fun’ at 19:15 on April 5th in the Paradise Room. Enjoy a drink before a great evening of top quality professional entertainment. I have lined up some fabulous acts for you. Following ‘Friday Fun’ you can have another drink or two before the 23:00 close.
Saturday (6th) events start at 08:45 in the Paradise Room (tea/coffee, ride pass issue). At 09:30, we will head onto the Park for a one- hour Exclusive Ride Session (ERS) on The Big One to celebrate its 30th anniversary. And as a bonus for the younger ones - The Blue Flyer (Zipper Dipper). Following this you can use your INCLUDED unlimited ride pass to enjoy the dozens of other rides at the Park. At 11:30 those who want to can meet at the Derby Racer for a ‘ride takeover’, and then everyone will re-group at 12:30 for a hot lunch in the Paradise Room. The latest Club merchandise will also be on display and available for purchase. The whole afternoon is then free for you to enjoy the Park at your leisure before you return to the Paradise Room at 19:30 for the “Nautical” themed ‘Coaster Crazy Show!’ You are invited to dress up (optional) in anything that is connected to “Nautical”. Just have fun interpreting it and think outside the box! As usual you will enjoy an evening of lively entertainment featuring new acts, games, the ever-popular Gong Show and some great prizes. Then we end the day with a much needed Club party – A non-stop mix of great dance and party tunes from over the years to keep you on your feet! You’ll also be able to enjoy a final drink before the 23:00 close (approx.).
Sunday (7th) starts at 09:00 in the Concourse Room (below the Paradise Room) and at 09:30 we enter the park for no less than THREE ERS’s featuring the classic Big Dipper, the World’s #1 racing woodie, The Grand National and the fun Ghost Train. Following the ERS’s if you then want to stay in the Pleasure Beach for the whole day on Sunday too (ride pass required, see booking form). If not, you can of course enjoy the rest of Blackpool, visiting the piers, The Tower, Tussauds, Sea Life, Velvet Coaster, etc. (If you do not purchase a Sunday ride pass you must exit the park by midday)
