I turned 24 on 14th May and to celebrate I went to Blackpool and Alton Towers. We drove up most of the way on Thursday night then travelled to Blackpool Friday morning and spent the day there. Growing up we visited theme parks since quite an early age and still enjoy them now. If you enjoy theme parks I definitely recommend Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Compared with Alton Towers / Thorpe Park, it is a bit more of a family friendly environment and can seem quite dated but the rides there are alot of fun and do not get boring.
