The walks will take place throughout September and October and cost £35.

Nick Thompson, Deputy Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said: “The Big One is one of the most iconic roller coasters in the world. It was a world’s first for its sheer height and speed and we want to give riders an experience no other amusement park can give them.

“Walking the Big One is an amazing experience and it gives the climber a unique view of the park and the rest of the Fylde Coast. It will be a memory that will live with them forever and also a chance to see Blackpool at its best, when the Illuminations are on!”
