Blackpool Pleasure Beach is introducing a new ‘Walk the Big One XL’ experience to the theme park this summer.

Thrill seekers will be “taken to places the public have never been before” as the original ‘Walk the Big One’ attraction is extended.

Participants will ascend the 72 metre roller coaster and are taken to two new exciting and different locations outside on the ride course to enjoy unique access and spectacular views of the ride, the park and the sea.

They will then have to descend 420 back down to terra firma.

Afterwards, visitors will have a chance to exclusive Walk the Big One XL merchandise.

The experience is described as an ‘in depth extended version of Walk the Big One’.

In total, the full experience lasts 90 minutes and harnesses and protective clothing will be provided.

Sensible shoes or boots with a good grip must be worn, but will not be provided by the organisers.

This activity may not be suitable for everyone. The walk is a physically demanding activity including steep climbs, drops, heights and the surface can be uneven, dirty and slippery.

It goes without saying that the activity is weather dependent so it will be worth checking the forecast if you do book.

The experience is priced at £150 per person.

Limited dates are available for the unique experience.

  • Friday 29th April – 4 spaces per walk. 5.30pm & 7.30pm
  • Friday 6th May – 6 spaces per walk. 5.30pm & 7.30pm
  • Friday 17th June – 6 spaces per walk. 5.30pm & 7.30pm
