We asked one of our VIP's Super Busy Mum, just what she thought of Coral Island during her visit in the Summer. See what she has to say below.
How would you describe Coral Island?
The arcade itself is filled with video games of all shapes and sizes, family bingo, claw machines, VR experiences and there is even a ghost train! Not to mention a selection of family restaurants to enjoy a good meal.
What were the highlights?
We’ve been on our fair share of spooky ghost trains but I have to say, this one has been the best one yet! I’ll not spoil anything, but trust me – if you ever visit Coral Island, be sure to ride the ghost train! My only pointer? Keep an eye out for that scurvy Captain Jack, he got us good – twice!
The kids had a blast playing on all kinds of arcade games. The 2p machines are always a big hit! Especially the ones that give out tickets.
Where did you eat?
You have a selection of places to enjoy a family meal. We ate in the Buccaneer and loved it. Everything from the shipwreck style decor to the staff dressed as pirates. Keep an eye on those paintings on the walls, though – the eyes move! The kids found this especially cool!
Did you enjoy your visit?
Our family fun day at Coral Island was a real treat. We felt very spoiled and every staff member we interacted with was so lovely. You could easily spend the afternoon in Coral island, from racing camels on the camel derby to riding the ghost train. You could lose yourself in the VR experience or just have some fun with a few games of family bingo.
If you’re ever in Blackpool, pop in for a visit. You’ll not be disappointed and you never know, you might even win a teddy bear or two! We did! Getting them home was an adventure as they weren’t small!
