Blackpool’s Big Dipper Turned 100 This Week

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is celebrating the centenary of it’s Big Dipper ride with it being one of the oldest wooden rollercoasters in the world when it opened on 23rd August 1923.

The Big Dipper is the second oldest rollercoaster still in use in Great Britain, although Margate’s Scenic Railway was the first.

The classic wooden design is a very different ride to a steel rollercoaster with it’s exciting rickety ride, which so many of us still love today.
