As merlin pass holders we wanted a day out where if the weather turned we still would have plenty to do. We chose blackpool, the weather was great, the sun was shining and everyone was happy.
Without a merlin pass the whole tower experience has been expensive for a family. With a merlin pass, it was easy and money free
We got to the tower at 10 to book our circus show. Always book in advance. We were lucky to get the 1pm performance which didn't hinder our eating plans. As the weather was sunny and it was early we decided to go to the top of the tower which I haven't done since the late 80s. We were shown up and were pleasantly surprised to stand through a fun 4d film first. It showed blackpool as it is. We then went up the lift which was cramped full to the brim. The guide explained a quick info session on the tower.
Once at the top we had the glass floor and open views in a glorious sunny day. We walked up the spiral staircases to the open air viewing deck. The kids weren't impressed and wanted to see the glass floor again.
We didnt see jungle jims because it was so hot.
Overall a great attraction that brings back childhood memories but worth buying tickets in advance. Go visit with a merlin pass but go early.
