Head spinning, heart beating and stomach churning rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach have long been one of the reasons to come to the resort.
It has changed immensely over the years with faster, taller, more loop-the-loop thrill rides added to the theme park year after year. It has constantly evolved.
These photos focus on rides which many people will remember from the past few decades – some are long gone but others remain as steadfast as ever and bring familiarity to visitors alongside some of the latest white knuckle thrills.
