They’re back, albeit for one night only - and it’s this Saturday.

Our favourite amusement park will be open until 10pm to celebrate the Pleasure Beach’s 120th anniversary. Late night riding will be followed by a spectacular fireworks display at 10.15pm.

It will enable guests to ride into the night - just like the good old days - on the UK’s favourite white knucklers: The Big One, Infusion, the Grand National, Big Dipper and more.

The FY4 area of the park will effectively turn into party central for adrenaline junkies, complete with top DJs spinning the latest tunes, along with other entertainment.

Nor will younger riders miss out with SpongeBob SquarePants and pals at the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land enjoying a late night - complete with Wallace & Gromit on the Thrill-O-Matic. A wristband for Saturday could buy more than 12 hours of action as the park opens at 10am and the fireworks start when the rides finish. Or bag a night rider valid from 4pm for £18 online,, or £20 on the day.
