Here are three postcards from the archive, each showing views of Blackpool Pleasure Beach from the 1980s.
In the first image you will note the slightly different configuration of the Grand Prix ride, which would remain like this until the construction of the Avalanche. Cyclone, the red and yellow steel coaster operated until 1987 before being relocated to Frontierland as Stampede.
In the second, the foreground view is relatively unchanged, bar the removal of the Cableway in 2001. The green topped arcade was destroyed in the Grand National fire of 2004.
Finally, new for 1980 was the Starship Enterprise, a Huss Enterprise ride that operated roughly where Valhalla’s exit is today.
