Blackpool South Pier, Blackpool
A carousel was installed in 1896. The Grand Pavilion was replaced by the Regal Theatre in 1963 and changed later into The Beachcomber Amusement Arcade. Since 1998 the pier's focus has been on its exciting rides and stunts. There was the Crazy Mouse roller coaster in 1998, the dodgems, and a spinning Walzer with its G-force rides.
The famous Adrenaline Zone features Skycoaster, a 125-foot high free-falling swing; Skyscreamer, a reverse bungee ride; Spider Mountain, a multi-storied climbable spider's web and; Maxibounce, an acrobatic trampoline. For relaxation, there are the Laughing Donkey Family Bar and the Kiddies Ride Arena.
After all the screaming, thrills, and whizzing about, pop into the Gin House. It has modern decor, drinks, outdoor tables, relaxing music, and great views. The South Pier is open every day throughout the season.
