Nickelodeon Land and Pleasure Beach Blackpool Guide

We visited Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool last week during half term. It was a lot of fun as I previously mentioned in our last travel blog post. We all had a great time. The kiddies loved every bit of it. It is definitely a popular park and once I stepped inside it, I could see why it is loved by many. If you are thinking of visiting Nickelodeon Land Blackpool anytime soon, you may find this guide very useful. I know I read all I could online before our trip because I like knowing what to expect, especially when kids are involved. Surprises are the last thing I need when on holiday with the twins.

Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool Opening Times

The Pleasure Beach Theme Park opens 10am and closes 7pm everyday. Nickelodeon Land Park opens at 10am and closes at 6pm everyday. The opening times are subject to change depending on the time of the year so it is wise to check on their website to confirm the opening times for the day you plan to visit.

 

Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool Ticket Prices

Here are the current prices as at time of writing –

  • Tickets for Adults £39.00
  • Tickets for Children aged 11 years and under £33.00
  • Pleasure Beach Pass (No rides with this pass) £10.00

 

You can get cheaper tickets if you book online well in advance. We booked ours online a week in advance and got the tickets posted to our home address. This a cheaper and faster option as we didn’t have to wait in the line (the line was so long) to collect our tickets.

The online discount tickets can be booked in advance up to midnight the day before your visit. This will reduce the cost of your trip down to £28 for adults and £26 for kids under 11 years. Also, you can get a further £3 off your ticket if you visit Monday to Friday during the Off Peak Season.

Check In

Check in was very fast. We beat the queues thanks to having our tickets delivered to us so it was a smooth entrance. The bags were checked and it took about 5 mins for us 4 to be scanned in.

 

The Rides

The Nickelodeon Land rides are about 5 minutes walk from the entrance but we got on many rides in Pleasure Beach before heading that way. We got on so many rides that we lost track of how many we got on. There are rides for everyone. Many are subject to height restrictions so always best to check before you join the queues. We loved The Big Circus Bounce, Alice in Wonderland, The Blue Flyer, and The Avalanche so much!

Food Food Food

There are so many restaurants, food stalls, and cafes available in here. You would be spoilt for choice. Starbucks, Costa, and so many more! We had some hot dogs at lunch time and we enjoyed them.

 

Clean Toilets

This is the first busy theme park I have seen with clean toilets. Usually, by mid day, toilets are usually a mess but not this park. The toilets were clean throughout the day and there were many available all over the park.

We had an amazing time here and I know we will be back for sure. The twins had a great half term break thanks to Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool and Hampton by Hilton. Memories were made and for that we are forever grateful. If you are in search of a great theme park to explore, I strongly recommend this one. It was so much fun and a beauty to behold. Definitely Instagram worthy.

How to keep a healthy lifestyle when you travel for work

What if I told you that the quality of your life drops when you travel for work?

I was completely taken aback when I came across a study that people who travel often end up with symptoms of anxiety, depression, obesity and high blood pressure.

As a frequent traveller, I must admit that there is a tendency to slack on my healthy lifestyle when I travel. Just like many people who travel for work, it can be a challenge to do simple healthy activities like exercising and making better choices with your meals. Of course, the change of time zones destabilizes me leaving me sleep deprived.

What I observed is that when you make the decision to make healthier choices irrespective of which country you find yourself in, it’s extremely possible to keep a healthy lifestyle when you travel for work.

Here are some healthy and simple lifestyle choices you can make when you travel for work.

 

Switch your means of transportation

It’s so much more convenient to move around a new country or city in a car or taxi. However, convenience doesn’t always guarantee a healthy lifestyle.

Instead of hailing for a cab or renting a car, why not start walking to your destination? Walking is a healthy physical activity that will keep you fit while you’re in another country. The best part about taking a walk is that you get to soak in the scenery and explore the city you’re in.

 

Be conscious about what you eat

There is a tendency to be a little lax in your choice of food when you travel. And it’s understandable. You won’t be able to cook your own meals and since you’ll only be staying for a short time it won’t hurt eating poorly for a couple of days.

But those are just excuses. You should be as conscious about what you eat when you travel as you are when you’re home. Take time to carefully examine what’s available to eat. Choose food that is balanced and not too fatty.

Another tip is to practice intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting has a lot of health benefits and it’s perhaps one of the most ideal steps to take when you want to stay healthy.

Don’t stay stuck in a gym

Although it’s great to know that most hotels have gyms now, there’s nothing spectacular about working out in one. I’m not saying that gyms are bad. It’s just that all you’ll see are big equipment, weights and sweaty people.

However, you’ll get to enjoy the full benefit of your travel when you do your workout outside. Take a jog in the nearby park, cycle through the neighbourhood, or do some other outdoor sports. This way you not only give yourself a good workout, you also get to appreciate your new environment.

 

Get creative with your happy hours

There’s nothing like unwinding after a long day of work. You could go for a drink with some of your colleagues at a local bar or eat out at some restaurant.

But what if you think differently and add some culture to your hangouts? Instead of grabbing some drinks after work, why not go to the museum with your colleagues. This would not only help you get to know the culture of place you’re in, it also helps you relax and stimulate your mind as you learn new things.

Reception Primary School Year

*Collaborative post.

 

The Kiddies started reception last Sept, and they are still loving it. I have previously written about how excited they were to finally start primary school. They grew out of their pre school quite quickly and got bored with the routine there. I guess partly because they are the older kids (they are November babies), and partly because there wasn’t much to do over there.

I thought the love of primary school would have worn off by now since they started in September 2018, but it hasn’t. It is good to know they like school and learning as much as they do. They are both very academic. My daughter is a great reader, and is free reading properly already. My son loves reading as well, but he prefers numbers and is really good at it. It makes me very proud to see how quickly they have settled in and how much they love education.

Dealing with kids not loving school would be hard. I am glad I don’t have to deal with crying kids at the school gate. I was not a big fan of primary school when I was their age. But I knew I had to go so I just got on with it. Good to know they didn’t inherit that side of me, but then again I can see why they love going to school. I would love going to school if my school was as good as theirs.

Right now, the twins are learning about cities all over the world in primary school, and they are loving it. They are forever talking about New York and London in particular. We visited New York last year but they were not aware it was “New York” and want to visit again. They are hoping for a school trip to New York but they now know that is not happening. They have also  been to London many times but can’t remember being there, so we are looking to plan a visit into city so they see for themselves all what they are learning in school.

Travel is important to us as a family, and that is why we always make time and money for holidays. I think travel is an important gift to give our children, and that is why we go for as many trips as possible. So far the kiddies have been to Düsseldorf, Paris, Algarve, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Amsterdam, Milan, Dubai, Oman and Dublin. We are hoping to do more travel this year, especially now that they are learning about the world around them.

Is your child all settled into the new school year? Do you think travel is an important gift to give a child?
