Kids Eat Free at Coral Island, Blackpool plus win a Mini Cooper


This summer we are going on a little staycation. After visiting family in Leeds we will be holidaying for a few days at Blackpool. The kids are very excited about going to Blackpool and have been looking at the Visit Blackpool website for ideas of attractions they want to.

As the boys love pirates especially H as he has just been learning all about pirates and the sea at school, once they saw the iconic pirate themed logo of Coral Island they declared we HAVE to visit there when holidaying in Blackpool.

The kids have already had a GOOD old look at the Coral Island website to see what attractions and amusements they can enjoy when we visit. H is very excited that they have a number or ride on kids rides and loves the look of the pirate ships and Circus ride. T is hyped up about the fact that Coral Island boasts Virtual Reality arcade rides, which in his opinion is “super awesome”. They also both want to go on the Ghost Train and Pirate Flyer whilst I can't wait to give the Camel Derby a try.

Being a family on a tight budget especially now that we are expecting our third child, I am pleased that Coral Island is Blackpool's largest indoor free admission family attraction and that we can keep a close eye on our budget as we pay as we play the arcade games and rides.

To help make our money go further on our staycation, I am also glad that Coral Island have an amazing promotional offer of Kids Eat Free.

The handy for families offer of Kids Eat Free is available all day, every day at all of the Coral Island restaurants -
* The Buccaneer Family Bar & Restaurant serving generous portions of family favourites and a Three Meat Sunday carvery every Sunday
* Captain Jack's Bar & Grill, famous across the seven seas for their Double Dipped Wide Ribs and Stacker Burgers
* Peggy's Family Snack Bar serving daily specials and a full counter service. They open for Breakfast serving full English, where you can set a whole family of four up for the day for less than £10 thanks to the Kids Eat Free promo
* Serving award winning fish and chips both the Traditional Chippy and The Big Fish Trading Company offers sit in fish and chips at takeaway prices

As I am a sucker for a competition, when we visit Coral Island this summer I will be sure to put my name in the hat for a chance to win their amazing Win a Mini competition. If you fancy driving a brand new Mini along the Blackpool promenade head to Coral Island and find the Mini Cooper located out of the Prize Bingo where you can complete a competition entry form. The lucky winner will be announced Steve & Janine on Rock FM Breakfast Show on the 23rd of August.

Coral Island's generosity does not end there. To celebrate their Win a Mini campaign this summer they have weekly bonus prizes of Mini Cooper kids ride on cars, Mini Cooper remote control cars and Coral Island t-shirts to give away. For a chance to win simply enter your details into the form on the Coral Island website to be entered into the prize draw.

We cannot wait to visit Coral Island in August and will be sharing about our adventures and experiences of Coral Island on here.

*We have been gifted a Coral Island VIP pass and complementary family meal in return for a review which will be posted in August after we visit. This is a pre-visit post to share information about Coral Island as we plan our visit and look at what Coral Island has to offer to families *
