New Blackpool Attractions
The saying goes that nothing ever stands still and this is certainly true of Blackpool as the famous seaside resort gears up for a bumper 2022 season with a host of new attractions.
As one of the leading UK seaside resorts, Blackpool continues to grow with expansion into new markets and a healthy offering of new visitor experiences for all ages. There’s already loads to do in Blackpool but as we look forward to the 2022 season, a host of new attractions beckon and these will lead to some amazing adventures for families throughout the summer and into the autumn season. Here’s what we can expect to see in 2022:
The award-winning animated TV series ‘Peter Rabbit’ is set to find a new home on Blackpool’s Golden Mile this year. Merlin Entertainments have recently announced that the £1 million attraction will open next door to Madame Tussauds Blackpool as a brand new standalone visitor experience. Families will be able to hop into the world of Peter Rabbit and also meet his friends in five distinct fluffy tailed themed zones. Guests will have a chance to meet and greet Peter himself and once opened in Spring 2022, the attraction will join Merlin Entertainment’s six other popular attractions in the town which include Sea Life Blackpool and The Blackpool Tower.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Three of the more popular rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach have been updated to offer thrill-seekers an even more exciting experience for 2022.
This has been voted the ‘World’s Best Water Ride’ for six consecutive years and now Valhalla is set to be even better in 2022. The high speed water ride will take you on an exciting six-minute journey through scenes of snow, fire and dense mists in a Viking long boat, the whole trip accompanied by a brand new evocative soundtrack in what promises to be one of the very best extra-sensory thrills of 2022.
The first and thus far only double-launch rollercoaster in the UK is set to get even more exciting with ICON’s rear seats soon to be adapted to twist and spin freely throughout the duration of the ride. Prepare for a thrilling experience as you are subjected to high-speed acceleration and electrifying twists and turns.
There can be little doubt that this is one of the hottest tickets in town. Hot Ice will make a welcome return to the Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena in July 2022 with a new production for the summer called ‘Rapture’. Expect a thrilling spectacle of feathers, glamour and amazing choreography performed by a host of star-studded performers and ice skating champions.
