Blackpool’s iconic Laughing Man to become Santa this Christmas


He is 6ft 3″, lives in the middle of an amusement park and has been laughing in hysterics for 76 years. It’s the famous Laughing Man at Pleasure Beach Blackpool and, for the first time in his life, he is getting completely transformed into a new festive guise… The Laughing Santa! The transformation marks the opening of Nickelodeon Land for 12 Days of Christmas this December.

Introduced to Blackpool Pleasure Beach in 1935, the Laughing Man rocked back and forth in his special Laugh Booth outside the parks Funhouse attraction. He has since moved and can now be found in the amusement park by the new Nickelodeon Land area.  If you’ve never seen him before, just watch the video below:
