A new attraction for next year has today been announced by Blackpool Pleasure Beach, in partnership with Aardman Animations.
Based on the popular Wallace & Gromit claymation movies, the ‘Thrill-O-Matic’ will take guests behind the scenes of West Wallaby Street, with a look into some of the duo’s most crazy inventions.
The ride will open as a dark ride on the park’s Overpass – where the classic Gold Mine ride previously operated. It is believed the same track will be used, but with new innovative vehicles and theming.
As part of the £5.25 million project, guests will be taken through the most popular scenes of the duo’s adventures, taking riders straight into the action.
The new attraction will also feature a themed gift shop, selling the latest Wallace & Gromit and Aardman merchandise.
Managing Director of the Pleasure Beach, Amanda Thompson OBE has said;
“We are delighted to be welcoming Wallace & Gromit to Pleasure Beach.
“Thrill-O-Matic represents a significant investment in the park and we know the characters will be a huge hit with the families who come and visit Pleasure Beach.
“Wallace & Gromit are national treasures and to have them here re-affirms our commitment to attracting families back to the resort for what we hope will be A Grand Day Out!”
