The county's biggest and best theme park is set to re-open on Monday.

Following the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson's reassuring press conference on Easter Monday, where he told the nation that the second step out of lockdown WILL be going ahead as planned on April 12, Blackpool Pleasure Beach announced they would be re-opening to the public.

In time to celebrate its 125th year providing action-packed fun for all the family, bosses at the Pleasue Beach said they would open their doors once again on Monday April 12, to welcome back thrill seekers in a Covid secure way.

A spokesperson for the seaside resort attraction said: "In line with Government guidelines, we plan to re-open Covid secure and 'Good To Go' on Monday April 12.

"We look forward to welcoming you back to share in our 125th year.

"Please book in advance online to avoid disappointment and use our eTicket allowing you to enter the park as soon as you arrive.

"To enable social distancing across our outdoor amusement park we have capped the number of guests allowed on the park on a daily basis to give you a safe and enjoyable day out.

"Please note, Pleasure Beach Passes will not be available to purchase whilst we operate under these new Covid-19 procedures.

"The eTicket will be the only type of ticket available to purchase."

Pleasure Beach bosses have introduced social distancing measures in queue lines around the park, and have developed a dedicated plan for each ride in order to enable social distancing between groups. 

On some rides, it may be necessary to leave empty seats between guests, and guests will be required to wear a face covering in any indoor setting and on most of the outdoor rides.

The Pleasure Beach will be open from 11am until 5pm Monday to Friday, and from 10am until 5pm at weekends.
