South PierSouth Pier South Pier in Blackpool is the southern pier of the city near the Sandcastle Waterpark and Blackpool Pleasure Beach. The Pier was opened in 1893. Like the North Pier and Central Pier, the jetty is operated by the Sedgwick family. It features a collection of fairground rides, a Family Bar and a large amusement arcade.

A visit to the South Pier

Since the South Pier no longer offers a roller coaster, the number of reviews about the pier has decreased a bit. At the same place there is now a classic Reverchon log flume, which is missing in the offer of the not far away Pleasure Beach. In addition to some children’s rides, you can find a Magic Dance by Sobema, a Miami, a bumper car, a Twister and a Waltzer.

The real highlights are in the adrenaline zone of the pier, where the tokens are not valid for the other attractions. These are a Sky Coaster, a sling shot style ride, a bungee trampoline, as well as the Gyro Loop from Moser, where it is possible to control your own ride by arresting the brake, as well as forward and backward movements.

I did not feel like riding any of the rides, as they all ran a quite short program. Nevertheless I was glad to walk around on the open pier this time, just to be a little surprised how small and run-down it was. After a visit to the neighbouring Sandcastle Waterpark Blackpool or the notorious Pleasure Beach Blackpool, a short walk on the South Pier is worthwhile. As the choice of rides changes from time to time, I’m sure I’ll drop by again sometime.
