The Big One Buckle up is a game from Pointvoucher, and is available on IOS and Android.
The game is basically a roller coaster simulator and by playing you can earn voucher points to use in the shop. In the shop you can purchase Pleasure Beach wristbands (1,2 or 4), or vouchers for soft drinks or doughnuts that are redeemable in the park.
I became aware of this app around middle of August and by the end of August I had earned enough points (350,000) to purchase four wristbands. By the next week I had another 100,000 points for the extra wristband we would need so we could all go for free. So earning the points isn’t difficult at all.
This year the game runs up to November 5th which is the end of the season, after this time any points earned will no longer be valid and those items in the store will be removed until the beginning of the 2018 season. Now that I am aware of the game I will certainly be earning the points from the start of the next season to spread the required game play time over a longer period.
Because we had the free wristbands we decided to combine our annual Blackpool illuminations trip with a day at the Pleasure Beach. This excited my children as they have been wanting to visit Nickelodeon Land all year and with late night riding in the rest of the park we would have lots to see and do.
Nickelodeon land is based on the characters and shows from the world’s most popular kid’s network. Its 12 fantastic rides such as Dora’s World Voyage, Bikini Bottom Bus Tour, SpongeBob’s Splash Bash and The Blue Flyer are designed to thrill and entertain the whole family and they certainly did just that.
The rest of the Pleasure Beach does have quite a few rides we were able to enjoy as a family too, such as Wallace & Gromit’s Thrill-O-Matic, The Grand Prix and The Pleasure Beach Express.
Wristbands for the park start at £18 for under 12’s (off peak and booked in advance) up to £32 for an adult (on the gate, peak), so the Big One game can save you quite a bit of money if you plan on visiting as a family.
