Central Pier

With its array of attractions, amusements, shows and shopping, Central Pier is at the heart of the Blackpool coastline.

The amusement arcade at the front of the pier is full of the latest gaming machines and attractions. From roller-derby to hi-tech simulators, there’s never a dull moment.

Central Pier is home to Blackpool’s world famous “Big Wheel” and Fun Fair. Dare you try “The Extreme” or give the Waltzer a Whirl? For the little adventurers there’s scaled down versions of our white knuckle favourites.

Just underneath the Big Wheel is the brand new Pirate's Bay arcade packed full of the latest video, prize and gaming machines.

At the end of the pier is the brand new Family Bar "Pirate's Bay" with FREE entertainment every weekend and throughout the school holidays to suit the whole family.

Join the Central Pier entertainments team, Emma Louise as seen on BBC1's "The Voice", Award Winning DJ Kieron for games, dancing, competitions and prizes, Davey Dee and his crazy science show, Aldini's magic disco and Krazy Karl the hilarious ventriloquist. Plus live music from our resident band The Coustics! followed by a fabulous family disco until late!

Every Saturday night don't miss the Big Kids Extravaganza Show exclusive to Pirate's Bay. DJ Kieron hosts Blackpool Entertainer of the Year, magician Russ Brown for amazing illusions and comedy. The hilarious 3D UV Puppet Show plus international juggling sensation Mr Slava followed by the Nintendo Switch gameshow and late disco​. Don't forget that entry is free!

At the front of the pier at the showbar our amazing show KINGS & QUEENS returns with tributes to four musical legends - Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, George Michael and Whitney Houston. You'll be entertained by three of these amazing artists each show plus our amazing Invincible Dance Team and their tribute to ABBA! The show has been awarded TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for the 2nd year in a row!

Come and join in the family fun on Central Pier
