The nation’s favourite holiday resort is urging visitors to stay home over the Easter weekend – and instead enjoy a taste of the seaside from the comfort of their living rooms.

VisitBlackpool has produced a Virtual Blackpool package tour which includes a brilliant online collection of rollercoaster rides, water slides, tours of venues and attractions, educational videos, and plenty of fun and games for the family to enjoy.

The package, available on the website, includes:

  • A thrilling POV ride on the incredible ICON, the UK’s first double-launch coaster at Blackpool Pleasure Beach

  • Breath-taking footage of the white-knuckle water chutes at the Sandcastle Waterpark

  • A touch of animal magic with some delightful live videos, animal photos and educational facts from Blackpool Zoo

  • Walk-through tours of two of Blackpool’s beautiful heritage attractions – the Grand Theatre and the Winter Gardens

  • The SEA LIFE diaries, a fun and educational insight into the creatures from the ocean’s depths

  • Fascinating time-lapse footage of how we make our world-famous Blackpool Illuminations

  • Action sequences from stars of The Blackpool Tower Ballroom and Circus

Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “In normal times, this is the official start of our holiday season when our numerous attractions put out the welcome mat and our coastline is packed with visitors enjoying the spring sunshine.

“But Easter 2020 is going to be very different. Government advice is to stay home and stay safe. And that means not visiting Blackpool, even for the day – and the Easter Bank Holiday weekend is no exception.

“But just because you can’t come to Blackpool for Easter doesn’t mean we can’t bring Blackpool to you. Thanks to the internet, you can experience some of the resort’s brilliant attractions and venues from the comfort of your own home.

“We hope this will bring a taste of the seaside into your living room – and whet your appetite to come back and see us when it’s safe to do so.”
