THE Pleasure Beach has been named one of the top 10 fun parks in the world.

And the South Shore attraction came top of every park in the UK in the prestigious Golden Ticket awards.

Park managers from across the globe gathered at Holiday World, Indiana, USA, for the annual ceremony, which recognises the very best in the theme park and water park industry.

They are presented by Amusement Today, an international publication which covers the industry.

Pleasure Beach Blackpool charted joint 10th in the Top Park category with Cedar Point, Ohio, clinching the top spot. Also joining Pleasure Beach in the Top Park category were Disneyland and Universal Studios.

Managing director Amanda Thompson said: “Our year on year investment and the opening of Nickelodeon Land this year has helped cement our position on the international map and as the UK’s number one park.”
