Blackpool Pleasure Beach to launch Walk The Big One XL


A new ‘exhilarating’ experience arrives at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and attendees can experience an expanded version of Walk The Big One.

Participants will be taken to places “the public has never been before” in this new in-depth walk on the 235-foot roller coaster.

In Walk The Big One XL, participants will be taken to two “new, exciting and different places” that audiences have never been to before.

You will also be able to climb the main pull-up of the route where you will hike to the top of the Big One.

The experience ends with a chance to purchase one of the exclusive Walk The Big One and Walk the Big One XL products.

Throughout the experience you will enjoy spectacular views of the merry-go-round, the park and the sea – if you can handle the dizzying heights!

Big One fans took to social media to discuss the new experience.

One person said, “I love this ride… I don’t think I could walk it. ”

“I don’t think I could do that,” said another.

A third Twitter user said: “If it was cheaper I would definitely do it”

How to get tickets

The entire experience will last around 90 minutes and is priced at £ 150 per person.

Participants must be at least 12 years old and wear suitable shoes or boots with good grip.

Walk The Big One XL will take place on different dates between April and June – but places are limited, so be sure to reserve your place early.

When will Blackpool Pleasure Beach reopen?

Blackpool Pleasure Beach reopens in 2022 for White Knuckle weekends from Saturday February 12 through Sunday March 27.

Guests can let go of their winter blues and enjoy seven weekends of fun and excitement in February and March.

The world’s most intensive amusement park, renowned for delivering an adrenaline-filled adventure, is always ahead of the game when it comes to thrills. Guests can travel 235 feet in the air before descending at breathtaking speeds on the UK’s tallest roller coaster, the Big One, then experience the twists, turns and acceleration of ICON, the first and the UK’s only double roller coaster launch.

In total, the park has 10 incredible roller coasters and there really is something for everyone.

If guests prefer things a little quieter, they can enjoy the River Caves, Alice in Wonderland, and the world’s first Wallace & Gromit ride, Thrill-O-Matic.

Younger kids can have fun at Nickelodeon Land and meet all of their favorite Nickelodeon characters. Meet SpongeBob and PAW Patrol, take a ride on SpongeBob’s Splash Bash or take a Bikini Bottom bus ride, then browse the UK’s only Nick store and shop for fabulous Nickelodeon gifts!

Speaking on the park reopening in 2022, Amanda Thompson OBE, Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, commented: We welcome all of our visitors, old and new, back after the winter break.
