Wallace & Gromit might make unlikely superheroes, but this spring the pair will ride to the rescue of Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

The worst summer weather in 100 years in 2012 meant that the 42-acre leisure park fell short of expected takings.

Directors of the park, which was founded in 1896, said the poor weather was the main reason for the shortfall, though the number of visitors was actually up. 

This was helped in part by the first full year of Nickelodeon Land, a six-acre site with 12 rides featuring Nickelodeon characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer.

Now the park, which is run by Amanda Thompson, great-granddaughter of founder William Bean, is preparing for the launch of the Wallace & Gromit-themed Thrill-O-Matic ride.


The four minute fully enclosed ride is scheduled to open in April.
