I visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach when it was free to walk round - a couple of rides then off to the arcades!

These nostalgic pictures evoke memories of the 90s and 00s at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

It was the days when tourists could walk around the park for free (if they weren’t keen on rides!) and when The Big One opened for the first time.

The 1990s are not that long ago but long enough to stir feelings of nostalgia and these pictures of our beloved Blackpool theme park certainly take you back to another time.

Riding The Avalanche was on the wish list and it was when Valhalla was built, opening just this side of the new Millennium. Aside from the rides these photos also take you through the park crowds and from above too with some incredible aerial images.
