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.

You shared your own memories of Blackpool’s much-loved theme park - the rides, sounds and smells and the things you miss the most. Danielle Robinson missed the Wild Mouse. She said: “Nothing like a bit of whiplash and wondering if you're going to fly off the edge of the track!”

Diane Taylor recalled: “The whip was a good one, think the bumper cars replaced it when they were moved from the front of the Pleasure Beach.” The Log Flume was up there in your memories. Coral Bowden said: “I miss the log flume! You used to get absolutely soaked. Now there's only the small Rugrats one.”

And Andrew Harker remembered his brother’s antics. He said: “Those cable cars! Went out over street on the prom and remember my brother spitting on people.”
