Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are about to embark on a massive adventure, climbing and then abseiling the Big One rollercoaster at Blackpool Pleasure Beach!

Leo, Mikey, Raph and Donnie will be the stars of the show when they descend the 235ft steel rollercoaster at the UK’s favourite tourist attraction on June 16.

The fearless foursome are taking part in the event to mark the start of the annual Charity Abseil which sees more than 40 people descend the summit of the UK’s tallest coaster, raising thousands of pounds for ABF The Soldier’s Charity.

This is the second year of the Charity Abseil following last year’s debut which raised more than £40,000 for the charity. ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has given lifetime support to serving and retired soldiers and their families for almost 70 years. It is hoped the Big One Charity Abseil will raise thousands of pounds through sponsorship from fundraising abseilers.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach Managing Director, Amanda Thompson OBE, said: “We are delighted to have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Nickelodeon abseiling the Big One. We know they love a challenge and it doesn’t get much bigger than this!

“It is such an iconic ride and we are delighted to support The Soldiers’ Charity and their fundraising abseil.”
