I am an amusement park enthusiast, and enjoy spending my free time traveling around the United States and Canada exploring new places. I am particularly fanatical about roller coasters. My wife is planning a possible trip to Manchester, England next year. I understand that the seaside resort town of Blackpool is not too far away. All I know is that the town has a park called "Pleasure Beach" that has 12 (!) roller coasters. Has anyone ever visited this park, or can you tell me anything about Blackpool and the surrounding area, in general?

That is where I live. Its really not very exciting. If you want to go to a good theme park in England, try Alton towere, Thorpe Park or Chessington
