Family owned and operated, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, located in England, is home to a variety of old and new. Over the years, Blackpool Pleasure Beach has been nominated for many awards, including taking 5th place for best amusement park in the world in Amusement Today. Similarly, Pleasure Beach was ranked 2nd best seaside park in the world. With these prestigious awards to its name, Pleasure Beach does not lack thrills and entertainment. One of the park's most popular attractions is Pepsi Max Big One, a steel roller coaster boasting a 205-foot drop at speeds of nearly 75 mph. Along with roller coasters and thrill rides, Blackpool Pleasure Beach has many shows and arcades as well as many children's rides. Similarly, there is a casino on the park grounds. For those who want to enjoy a ride found nowhere else in the world, the Steeplechase is a three-tracked roller coaster where the cars race along the tracks. In the computer game Roller Coaster Tycoon, Pleasure Beach is one of the playable theme parks in the Loopy Landscapes expansion pack.
