3 Become 5
Blackpool Zoo’s herd of Asian elephants is now almost complete following the safe arrival of two females from Twycross Zoo. Noorjahan and her four-year-old calf, Esha have arrived at our new multi-million pound Project Elephant Base Camp at Blackpool Zoo following months of ‘behind the scenes’ work with specialists from Twycross Zoo and experts from the European Endangered Species Programme

 

Awesome New arrival

Zoo keepers and academics are heralding the birth of the UK’s only current female Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra foal in what has been described as a miracle for the vulnerable species.

The healthy foal was born at the zoo overnight on Wednesday 5thSeptember, making her the only surviving female born in the UK since 2002

1. The Pleasure Beach … all day thrills & spills for around £39 (book online the day before your visit for substantial savings or save those Tesco Clubcard points). Give Icon, the newest roller coaster a try if you dare!

2. The beach … miles of golden sand & donkeys for traditional family fun

3. Blackpool Zoo … whether you have kids or not, this is a great day out … flat, beautifully landscaped, new animals, revamped enclosures & 2 cafes. Lots of interactive areas, too. Make sure you visit the new Elephant Base Camp.

4. Blackpool Tower Circus … entertaining & heart-stopping feats, different every year &, of course, Mooky, the best clown in the business (in my humble opinion)

5. Sandcastle Indoor Waterpark … slides & waves in tropical heat or relax in the spa area

6. Tower Dungeons … a great interactive attraction … real actors introduce you to some of history’s less-than-pleasant experiences; fun-scary not x-rated scary!

8. Shows … Lots of choice here from West-end quality musicals at the Winter Gardens, traditional end of pier shows on the North pier, Legends (temporarily in the Tower Ballroom for 2018), Kings & Queens on Central Pier, Funny Girls, family entertainment at the Pleasure Beach and great comedy, illusion and cabaret shows at Viva. Something for everyone!

9. Shopping … whether it’s small souvenir shops, big-name brands or Department stores you like, Blackpool has it all

10. Heritage tram tours for a view along some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK

11. Winter Gardens … heritage tours are now available & you get to see the glorious restoration of this impressive building … genuinely an absolute delight!

12. The Sealife Centre … fun AND educational. This year’s “Save a Turtle” was a great hit with our grandchildren!

I know that’s 12 things but it’s so difficult to stick to 10!!!!
