The world's first Wallace & Gromit ride turned one year old this week! The Thrill-O-Matic, located at Blackpool's Pleasure Beach, has been enjoyed by thousands of visitors since it was opened by Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park in 2013. To mark the occasion there was birthday cake and the chance for visitors to meet their favourite Aardman characters.



The ride has proved a huge hit with visitors, inviting them to board a giant slipper and take a journey through some of the most memorable moments in favourite Wallace & Gromit films, including The Wrong Trousers and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. The ride also takes in some of the most iconic W&G contraptions, as well as some beautiful scenery and dazzling special effects. 

To mark the first anniversary of the Thrill-O-Matic, lucky riders were offered a slice of birthday cake and there were special appearances from Wallace, Gromit and, as an added bonus, Shaun the Sheep!

To plan your own grand day out and take your seat on the Thrill-O-Matic, visit the Blackpool Pleasure Beach website, where you can read more about all the family-friendly attractions, buy discounted tickets and find out useful info for planning your trip.

Hello, I've attempted emailing about this but got no reply so I'm saying it on a random thread... I have recently discovered my old W&G account from about six years ago: nam mam06, it's very embarrassing and keeps getting confused with my tumblr account on Google. I would like it removed or at least have the contents of the account removed so it doesn't show up on searches any more, thanks.
