Coral Island highlights

Coral Island offers 3 different rides for kids to enjoy and a handful of virtual reality rides in the arcade that offer thrills. One of the most immersive rides is a ghost train that takes you on a whirl to explore a ghostly shipwreck and find lost treasure.

For many dedicated patrons, the best part of Coral Island is the ticket-games section where you can try your luck and use a bit of skill to rack up enough tickets to cash in for one of the toys or trinkets at the prize shop. There is also a small casino area with roulette, blackjack and slots.

Good to know when visiting Coral Island

One of the wonderful features of Coral Island is that children 10 and under eat free with the purchase of an adult meal at any of the 5 eateries. As you plan your visit, you may want to check Coral Island’s website for the latest promotions and events.

Coral Island is one of the easiest attractions to find in Blackpool because of the elaborate exterior displays that include a massive glowing skull and pirate ship. There’s plenty of nearby parking, and public transport is a great option as well.
