Blackpool Pleasure Beach will turn red, white and blue over the four-day bank holiday weekend as it celebrates Her Majesty’s 70-year reign.
Dubbed the “Jubilation Celebration,” the events will take place at the park from Thursday, June 2 through Sunday, June 5.
As a bonus, the park will open late from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on June 4, allowing guests to ride their favorite roller coasters in the dark.
To help you get the most out of your visit, we’ve compiled a list of everything you need to know about the park’s roller coasters.
Get ready for The Big One, Pleasure Beach’s biggest, fastest and scariest roller coaster. Feel the adrenaline rush to a height of 235 feet. Get ready for the first drop that boasts a 65 degree lean angle and at speeds of up to 85 mph, this roller coaster is an experience like no other! The Big One is also one of the longest roller coasters measuring over a mile in length. Guests must be at least 132cm tall to ride.

ICON launches visitors on an exhilarating journey where they will feel the same acceleration as a Formula 1 driver before twisting and spinning at high speed through the park, interacting with other rides. A second speed boost will then propel riders to heights of 88.5 feet, with drops of up to 82 feet, giving even the bravest of thrill seekers an unforgettable ride. Guests must be 130cm to ride or 150cm to sit in the back seat. A maximum height exclusion applies – when a guest’s head exceeds the height of the headrest, guests will not be able to ride.
The Grand National has been delighting racers since 1935 with its competitive edge. Once your train departs from the station, the race begins as you race against the competing roller coaster train on parallel tracks. Guests must be 132cm tall to ride.

Get ready for the rush of Revolution. With its nasty acceleration, the train is launched out of the station and heads straight for the gigantic loop. Just when you think it’s over, you’re thrown back to experience the amazing g-force all over again! You must be at least 50 inches tall to ride.
