It Is All Fun At... Pleasureland for Halloween and Bonfire Night.

ONLY AT Pleasureland... Now it is one of the UK’s top amusement parks, with thrilling white-knuckle rides like the TRAUMAtizer and Lucozade Space Shot side by side with great family attractions like Abdullah’s Dilemma and the River Caves. The £5 million TRAUMAtizer is one of the most thrilling rides in the UK with five dizzying inversions, whilst Abdullah’s Dilemma is the parks latest walk-through attraction, featuring mind-bending optical illusions and scientific trickery.

The summer may be over but there’s still plenty going on this autumn with our spooky Halloween “Fright Night” Party on 31st October and Pleasureland’s November 5th Bonfire Party, bringing the season to a close in spectacular style. There’ll be pumpkins galore at Pleasureland on the 31st, as well as spookily themed rides and staff in fancy dress. The kids can join in the fun with a fancy dress party in the Fun House and a prize for the best decorated pumpkin! As a special offer, all wristbands are just £8 throughout October – that includes weekends, October half term, Halloween night and Friday night Ride & dine which includes a free pizza meal and a go kart discount voucher.

It’s the perfect family day or night out, with thrilling rides that will test the nerve of the most daring family members, but plenty to do for younger children or those who prefer things at a more sedate pace. There’s also a wide range of catering outlets that sell anything from a simple hot dog to a three-course meal. Pleasureland is a free admission amusement park, so if you don’t want to ride you don’t have to pay - the park operates a wristband system so you can pay one price and ride all day, yet still come and go as you please. Opening times do vary so call please call 08702 200 204 to check times and prices.

A CENTRE helping people living in Anfield and Breckfield become more closely involved in the regeneration of the area opens its doors this week.

The Anfield Breckfield Regeneration Centre which is based at a former police station in Anfield Road, brings together a whole host of agencies involved in the delivering the regeneration proposals for the area. 

The partners who will be sharing the office are the City Council, Anfield Breckfield Community Partnership, Arena Housing Association, Liverpool Football Club, Liverpool Housing Trust, Maritime Housing Association, Merseyside Police, New Heartlands H.M.R.I Pathfinder and Riverside Housing Association.

Local residents will be able to drop into the centre to view plans for the area, ask questions and put forward ideas of their own. It will also provide a base for local community and residents groups to meet. 

"This will be the nerve centre for the regeneration of Anfield and Breckfield,”
said Councillor Mike Storey, City Council Leader. "It brings together all those agencies which are involved in reviving these neighbourhoods.

But it is important that local people are involved in developing the proposals for the regeneration of the area and this new centre will give them access in their own community to what is proposed for the future and the chance to influence those plans."

The Community Steering Group welcomed this opportunity for partnership working to become a reality, and is pleased that the new community development trust is to be based in the area. 

Peter Bevington, the Steering Group's Project Manager, said "Sharing the Regeneration Centre should give everyone a better understanding of how to work together to deliver regeneration. It will give local residents better access to the providers of services and the centre will enable better co-ordination of services and advice to local people."
