Many theme parks around our beautiful country have been criticised over the past few months, but I still believe that these are easily the best places to visit if you are looking for an action packed day out.
So I have put together a list of what we think are the top parks in the country:
Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Lancashire.
Since it was founded in 1896, the Thompson family didn’t expect this amusement park to become anywhere as colossal as it is nowadays. Now a world-renowned park, it was voted the best theme park in the United Kingdom of 2014, so is there really any argument why we have chose it? Pleasure Beach is home to what was the tallest and fastest rollercoaster in the world, when the “Big One” was opened back in 1994, no other ride in the world could compare to it, and nowadays not many other rides in England gives you the thrill you get when you ride the “Big One”.
Alton Towers, Staffordshire.
We all know Alton Towers has been at the centre of a storm recently with what has recently happened on its newly built rollercoaster “The Smiler” and we totally understand this, but what we also understand is that Alton Towers is one of the most beautiful theme parks in the world and no wonder with the famous towers which stand over the park and the eccentric gardens which surround the rides.
Not only does the amusement park boast some of the worlds most thrilling rollercoasters such as Nemesis, Oblivion and Rita but it also plays host to a wonderful waterpark which has everything you can ask for in a day out in a waterpark – it really is a special place!

Thorpe Park is home to some of the countries most thrilling rides, the Park now targets the young adult audience after a substantial investment in crazy rides like SAW: The Side and SWARM – but don’t worry this isn’t just for teenagers, it also hosts the world-renowned Nemesis Inferno along with other fantastic rides such as Stealth, Flying Fish and Colossus.
