Europe's first twin-track racing coaster was constructed in 1935 and remains one of the most popular wooden rollercoaster in the world. Technically it isnt actually a twin track it is actually a Moebius coaster. The two tracks are continuose forming a single circuit or 'Moebius Loop'. There are only three Moebius coasters in the word, these being Racer in Kennywood, Grand National in Pleasure Beach Blackpool, and Montaña Rusa in La Feria Chapultepec Magico.

Pepsi Max Big One
This coaster is 235ft high and reaches speeds of over 85mph and riders sustain a max of 3.5G. The initial drop is an incredible 205ft! When Blackpool Pleasure Beach constructed the Pepsi Max Big One it was the tallest, fastest and steepest roller coaster in the world, it is now been beaten but is still UK's tallest, fastest roller coaster.
This is a wonderful wooden coaster that gives you a velvety smooth ride as it takes you through steep drops, climbs and banked turns.
This is a unique rollercoaster that is really a very different ride. You sit inline on a hourse shaped car about 1.5 meters above the track with a small lap belt and a handle to hold. It has no sides and you feel very vunerable. It has three tracks to race against your friends. Pleasure Beach Blackpool is proud to have the only Steeplechase coaster in the world.
Not a ride for nervous people! This is a very scarey ride, it seems nice and tame when you look at it but once on it you realise that this is a very fast coaster that drops down incredibly steep slopes, bends so tight that it almost comes off the rails. It is one of only 3 remaining traditional wooden Wild Mouse rides in the world.
This should be your first coaster if you are a little scared. It is in the Nickelodeon Land area that is designed for children. It has no height restrictions but small children should be acompanied by an adult to provide a little support. It may be too small for some adults.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach has a great attraction above the entrance. Noahs Ark was built about 1921 and you can see teh workings in the entrance building behind aome glass walls. It really is a great attraction. Its like a fun house with wobbly floors, strange mirrors, and the whole thing rocks.
