If there is a daredevil inside of you, or you are looking for an ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon with the family, head on down to Pleasure Beach. Home to one the LONGEST roller coaster rides in the world and in Europe, 3 minutes on a roller coaster is NOT a short time,  this sleepy town is known for its theme park. This was the first theme park that I had gone to during my internship. I was scared to death to get up that roller coaster – what is called “THE PEPSI”. But when I went up once, and after shouting my lungs out for my mommy, I headed again for the second time. I can daresay – I have rode on one of the world’s longest roller – I HAVE SURVIVED! Apart from that, Pleasure Beach is a theme park for the whole family – young or old, there’s a ride for you.
