As we leave the stop the loop takes us to join the main line, to our right as we go around the curve is South Shore, the tram tracks going to the southern terminus of Starr Gate and home to the modern fleet of Flexity trams.
On the right now is Blackpool Pleasure Beach, which opened in 1896 and is still owned by the Thompson family today. The Big One – a fantastic roller coaster and highly recommended if you haven’t already been on it – has held a firm presence on Blackpool’s skyline since 1994.
Looking back to the sea shore is a work of art, The High Tide Organ, one of ten pieces of art titled The Great Promenade Show between here and Starr Gate. The High Tide Organ is powered by the tide forcing air up through the pipes to produce a distinctive sound – some call it music.
