6 amusement parks and amusement attractions of Great Britain that will provide an ideal weekend

What could be better than a fun family day in a theme park? Great Britain boasts of a large number of spectacular rides. Among them there are extreme, quickening the blood in the bravest ones, and quite simple, which bring an incredible portion of pleasure to the smallest visitors.

So, what can the year 2018 offer us? We will review the UK's largest theme parks, new slides and attractions that began their work this year.

1. Alton Towers

After a few months of anxious waiting, Alton Towers will finally begin to receive visitors. This is a unique place for all tastes and ages, where "adrenaline" adventures are closely intertwined with outdoor recreation, where mysticism exists side by side with childish naivety. Alton Towers offers to test your courage on noisy and fast-moving slides, and the smallest can have fun while riding a children's tram or car.

Location: Farley Ln, Alton, Stoke-on-Trent ST10 4DB.

2. Chessington World of Adventures

Wildlife lovers will definitely want to go to Chessington in 2018, as four Amur tigers will wait them here. At present, big cats live in Sweden, but very soon they will find a new house in a spacious park. In addition, Chessington World of Adventures prepares a lot of entertainment and activities for both adults and children.

Location: Leatherhead Rd, Chessington KT9 2NE.

3. Thorpe Park

There will be a "terrible" night, when zombies, monsters and terrible ghosts will add gray hair park visitors and make them scream for help. It should be remembered that going here with small children does not make sense, because the park's attractions are aimed at adults and teenagers. Thorpe Park can safely be called a center of the thrill, since most of the attractions are considered very extreme.

Location: Staines Rd, Chertsey KT16 8PN.

4. Legoland

Legoland this year will surprise its guests with new attractions that opened in March. One of them offers children to explore the world and see the sights of India, Australia and China. But most of the attention was given to the digital aquarium, where children can create colorful marine creatures with the help of a virtual designer. Then they will be able to see how their creations come alive and "swim".

Location: Winkfield Rd, Windsor SL4 4AY.

5. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is one of the 20 most visited amusement parks in the world. This year it teased all adrenaline fans with videos about the new attraction ‘Icon rollercoaster’, and now fans of thrill can experience all its coolness themselves. In addition to the novelty, there are more than 40 popular attractions in the park. On some of them you can feel like a racer of Formula 1, because the speed of the slide can reach 130 km per hour.

Location: 525 Ocean Blvd, Blackpool FY4 1EZ.

6. Paulton's Park

The theme park is suitable for toddlers. It is home to Peppa Pig World, and also opens the unique nature of Africa for the smallest guests. In Little Africa, there are many exciting animals, including porcupines, lizards, giant millipedes, exotic birds, meerkats. 2018 will be marked by the opening of several new attractions, which will give children an incredible delight.

Location: Hampshire, Ower, Romsey SO51 6AL.
