21 lost rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach including Log Flume, Wild Mouse and Noah's Ark

There’s nothing quite like the thrilling feeling of your first roller coaster ride and for many of us, that experience was at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Through the decades we have been able to take advantage of the incredible theme park being right here in Blackpool, and because of that we remember how it has changed through the years. New rides, old rides and lost rides – it’s ever evolving and that’s why it’s one of Blackpool’s biggest success stories. These photos concentrate on the lost rides, the ones we enjoyed as kids, the familiar names that still bring a smile to the face. There are some older ones too. Send us your Pleasure Beach memories – particularly about the Big Dipper which is 100 years old this year. [email protected]
