Our Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks offer!

BLACKPOOL’S world famous Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks houses five floors of fun and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

Make sure you stop for a pic-stop with two of TV’s most popular actors David Jason & Nicholas Lyndhurst. Since arriving at the Waxworks they have proved to be big favourites with their very own Trotters Independent Traders’ van!

Once through the doors work your way up the red carpet as you find yourself at a movie premiere making sure that you shield your eyes from the glare of the paparazzi! Once safely inside Celebcity, meet and greet famous faces from TV, film and sporting. Pose for pictures with celebrities including Lewis Hamilton, Posh and Becks, Gordon Ramsey and Elton John.

Experience some of the best moments from film history in ‘Hooray for Hollywood’. Pose for photographs with the Star Wars cast and be caught in the middle of the action with favourite actors from Terminator and James Bond’s Moonraker. Meet the new ‘Blonde Bond’ Daniel Craig and then, dare if you will, to have your photograph taken with our largest addition, King Kong!

Take a break from the party and step outside to join Leonardo DiCaprio on the bow of the Titianic. Test your nerves by daring to cross the Indiana Jones’ Pit of Doom to meet Harrison Ford or brave the explorer’s hut where prehistoric creatures roam free!

See the fun of the seaside, inside! Take your own memento postcard as you stroll along the promenade on level two. Continue along to find yourself truly mesmerised and perhaps a little lost in the Mirror Maze. Once you’ve found your way out why not take a rest on the royal throne and be crowned King or Queen for the day in the Regal Room.

Move up to the next floor and join stars of rock and pop in the Rock Factory. Join in the fun and have a go at playing the drums or guitar. Listen to the hits, including classics from greats such as Elvis and Freddie Mercury and most recent chart toppers, Robbie Williams and Madonna.

Take a stroll down the UK’s famous street and join the locals in the Rover’s Return to try your hand at pulling a pint with the memorable landlord, Alex Gilroy. Time for a rest? Enjoy a well deserved break in our Coronation Street café with Roy and Hayley on hand with a range of teas, coffees, cakes and sandwiches.

Finally, dare you venture in to the basement and enter the Chamber of Horrors to come face to face with notorious henchman past and present. Vampires, ghouls and assassins lurk around every corner, along with characters from classic horror films like Frankenstein. Be witness to some of the most gruesome executions and torture techniques the world has ever seen as you tread carefully around.

Our Blackpool Tower Offer!

BLACKPOOL Tower is the place to be during the half term holidays, a favourite amongst adults and children alike it offers action-packed days guaranteed to wear out even the liveliest families!

Jungle Jim’s Towering Adventureland is the result of a £3 million investment on level five of the World famous Tower. Two huge Inca gods guard the gateway to The Lost City, which houses a variety of challenging tasks for children to complete in the hunt for buried treasure. Overlooking this amazing play area is the Habourside Cafe where mum and dad can relax with a coffee.

Giant ships stand alongside the enormous gods in the lost city and are available for party hire. Birthday boys and girls can treat their friends to a party like no other as they take over a ship complete with themed characters.

Guests can also relax in the new Restaurant 1894. A tribute to days gone by, the 350 cover seating area, sat between the Tower’s four legs, is furnished with leather sofas, studded panels and dark wood. Enjoy wholesome favourites and winter warmers or for a lighter pit stop the ‘Tower Coffee Company’ offers creamy cappuccinos and tasty, freshly baked muffins.

As part of Blackpool’s SHOWZAM Festival take your seats in the Circus Arena for a performance of ‘Strictly Come Laughing’ starring our very own Mooky. You will certainly want to come back later in the year to catch ‘Mooky’s Circus of Dreams’ which will launch on the 4 April for the remainder of the season.

Dating back to the Victorian era the Tower Ballroom is the most beautiful attraction of all. Steeped in architecture, the Ballroom is home to the mighty Wurlitzer organ which takes pride of place on stage, rising above the crowds to provide music for all.

Travel on up to the top of the Tower on the Tower Top ride, here you will find the deft-defying ‘Walk of Faith’. Dare you walk or even stand on the two-inch thick, glass floor and stare in awe down at the promenade below. Visitors can even send their loved one’s a postcard from the Tower top, posting their message at Britain’s highest post box.
