Blackpool

Near Blackpool

Lancashire, North West

My favourite place is Blackpool because my family go on holiday there every year. It is jam-packed with tourist attractions making it really busy. The greatest attraction of Blackpool is of course The Pleasure Beach. The Pleasure Beach is holder of the biggest and fastest rollercoaster in Europe. Another attraction full of thrilling rides is Sandcastle Water Park. The biggest ride there is The Master Blaster which goes all the way around the building. There is also the Montazooma in which you hold on to a mat and zoom head first down 360 loops. Then there is my favourite, The Sidewinder in which gravity pulls you down an almost vertical drop and sends you flying up the other side. Another great attraction is Madame Tussauds which is a wax-work museum full of your favourite celebrities including Peter Andre, Deirdre Barlow or The Queen. And then donít forget the famous arcades. Full of slot machines on which you win small amounts of money or tokens that can be exchanged into prizes! My favourite arcade is Coral Island which is located on The Promenade. So those are my favourite things about Blackpool but as you may have noticed all of these attractions are man-made. There is one other thing that is natural, but is still a great feature of Blackpool and it is of course its beach, formed by sand erosion. So I hope I have inspired you to visit Blackpool.
