Years ago you could go in the Tower and get access to everywhere but Thanks to Merlin they have split it into different attractions. The prices if they were for all day would be ok but one was a tour which lasted an hour and was over £40 we just didn't bother. If you have money to burn and a... More

The Tower is such a great experience but slighty ruined by you being made to have a photo taken about 2 times on a blue screen and then a rubbish 4d experience which was basically a tourist video. I enjoyed Blackpool but the experience was not great, obvs money grabbing xx

Took my nephews here as they had never been despite living in the area all their lives. Glorious sunny day views spectacular and the glass floor viewing area was amazing. Then we went down to the dungeon and the experience was uniquely funny and a bit scary. Great energy from the actors - the torture chamber one and the judge... More

A bit pricey if done on it's own, but great as park of a package. It was one of the highlights of our stay in Blackpool. Film was OK and a bit of fun with the water, bubbles, etc. Standing at the front means you get less wet. The glass panels were big enough so everyone could have a go.

We came here mainly because of my daughters love of strictly come dancing. We paid to get to the top of the tower. This apparently does not let you into the ballroom or the children's play area. Very very disappointed. The top of the tower was a lovely view though and staff were friendly.
