Blackpool Comes to Oldham Family Events

A fun filled day out for all the family with indoor beach, food court and amazing theme park rides!

Opening from Friday, February 9 the annual event is set to be one of the most spectacular yet with over 25 thrilling rides and attractions!
As always there’s also entertainment undercover too with the mini beach in an air-conditioned marquee so even if it is a little chilly outside, children can build the perfect sandcastle or Mum and Dad can sit back and relax with a hot drink coffee and cake while the thrill seekers head outside to sample an amazing array of attractions.
And this year the rides which will dominate the skyline already are more spectacular than ever and great value too especially with all prices being held once again with an unlimited ride wristband, starting at just £5.99.
And new for 2018 is the amazing Voodoo Revenge, the first time such a ride has appeared at the fun park and is one of only two in the UK and our popular and much-loved King Swing is back this year too! The most spectacular ride though will be the Air Maxx, a monster of a ride brought in from Holland which features eight somersaulting seats spinning 48 metres high through a full 360° loop. Last year you thought no limits was intense, well Air Maxx is one truly exhilarating experience!
Blackpool Comes to Oldham wouldn’t be the same without it’s iconic Giant Wheel which is back once again this year standing at over 35 metres and the attraction will offer some amazing views for miles, while there is also the thrilling Twister, the Snow Storm which simulates a high speed Bob Sleigh run and back for 2018 after missing last year are the ever popular Waltzer’s. It’s not just about the thrill rides though there are lots of attractions for the families too with a giant family Roller Coaster, a huge new Fun House and the Dodgems as well as for the really small kids plenty of rides including the Go Gator Coaster, Race-o-Rama ride, Carousel and Balloon Ride.
Both Thursday’s the 15th and 22nd of February are sure to be popular with your mates as they are ‘Bring a Friend Day’s - basically one person buy’s a wristband and their friend comes in Free with a voucher available from shops or by download on the blackpoolcomesto website!
