Pleasure Beach intruders activate rollercoaster

Blue Flyer at Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Two intruders into Blackpool Pleasure Beach were able to activate and ride the Blue Flyer rollercoaster in the early hours of Friday morning, it has emerged.

The teenage boys accessed the ride’s control booth and were able to ride for approximately 30 minutes before they were confronted by security patrols.

A 15-year-old boy has been given a community resolution order by Lancashire Police as a result of the incident.

A statement from Blackpool Pleasure Beach said that the ride had subsequently been “fully inspected” and was again “operational and open to the public”.
