Here’s another scan from our archive, this time it’s a Blackpool Pleasure Beach map from 1978. New for this season is the Planetarium in the dome that would eventually host the Black Hole, followed by the 4D Cinema and now the disused Planet Rock performance venue.
Only 18 months prior, Geoffrey Thompson has become Managing Director of the Pleasure Beach company after the death of his father. The Steeplechase is operating at the south of the park and work to construct The Revolution is well underway.
Other long lost favourites visible on this map include the Virginia Reel, Fun House, Whip & Wild Mouse.
