Staff and maintenance crews at Blackpool Pleasure Beach have been getting the park ready to re-open for the 2014 season.
Staff have been polishing Wallace & Gromits heads which adorn the front of the Thrill-O-Matic, the family ride which opened last year.
Staff have also been getting the 'Big One' ready for guests and painting some of the rides to freshen them up before it opens and refilling the pool underneath the 'Infusion' coaster with thousands of tonnes of water.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach has been celebrating a significant birthday of an old favourite .
The Big Dipper was a great innovation back in 1923 - costing a shilling a ride.
Now its somewhat overshadowed by the Big One - but as Paul Crone discovered its still providing thrills on its 90th birthday.
