Less than 150 metres from South Pier is Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Britain’s ‘most visited tourist attraction’. It began as a small fairground among the sand hills, in 1896. The Velvet Coaster was one of the exciting new rides introduced in the early 1900s. Its open carriages, with velvet seats, climbed a white wooden structure before sweeping down ‘humps’ and around ‘curves’ on two circuits of the track. The Velvet Coaster was rebuilt, in 1933, and was known simply as Roller Coaster, until 2010. It is now named Nickleodeon Streak.
