As a kid, I knew as soon as you could see Blackpool tower, that we were almost there. The butterflies would develop in your tummy and you knew that so much fun was waiting to be had. From the sandy beaches, the donkey rides, amusement arcades, countless seaside food establishments and so much more. Now, that I am the parent, with my own children it’s just as exciting for them when they spot to tower in the distance.
On this particular visit to Blackpool, whilst staying at the lovely Marton Mere Haven resort. We were kindly gifted some Big Blackpool tickets to help us see more of what Blackpool can offer. And on this particular day, we had planned to do everything we possibly could inside the Blackpool tower. As a child I always thought it was just a tower, that you couldn’t go inside – but how wrong I was and how excited my children were.
Our first stop was the 4D cinema which was an exciting experience. Especially as a pre-top-of-the-tower attraction. We learned a few new things about Blackpool & the infamous tower and the 4D effects were mindblowing. They made the visual experience seem so realistic – from the water spray, the wind in our hair and even the rumbling of the bar we leant up against. Next stop, the top of the tower!
