We had a fantastic day trip to Nickelodeon Land. It was one of those days when the stars aligned. The sun shone all day, the Pleasure Beach surprisingly wasn’t very busy at all, the kids all behaved and had a brilliant time and we had loads of fun with The Harman family aka The Running in Lavender family. It was just brilliant.
We drove up to Blackpool in beautifully clear springtime sunshine and arrived at the Pleasure Beach at about 11am. It was pretty quiet and we immediately made our way over to Nickeloden Land to meet up with Heledd’s family. They were staying in the Big Blue Hotel that night. They had free parking included with their hotel stay and priority access to the Pleasure Beach which on busy days would be a huge bonus. We met them right in the centre of Nickelodeon Land and as it wasn’t very busy we managed to get on quite a few rides very quickly including Backyardigans Pirate Treasure, Wonder Pets Big Circus Bounce and Dora’s World Voyage.
Then we spotted Poppy Cat which was the reason we were there. The girls had been watching the show so they were really excited. It was still pretty quiet at that end of Nickolodeon Land so they basically had the show to themselves.
They danced, they hopped and jigged. They did the conga! The team with Poppycat were really good at getting all of the girls involved and they even gave out magazines and chocolate treats at the end. Definitely a win for us.
Poppy Cat is the featured character at Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s Nickelodeon Land between April 20th – May 22nd and will be making regular appearances throughout the day to entertain the kids.
Take a look at our little video of our girls time with Poppy Cat:
We then continued to have a fabulous day on all the rides. All the rides in Nickelodeon Land are basically the right size for 4/5 years olds to go on without an adult so we managed to go on everything with our combination of 4 adults, 5 children. The hits of the day were the Blue Flyer roller coaster ( at least 5 times)
