Beaver Creek was a Children's amusement park inside Pleasure Beach Blackpool. It closed on 5 September 2010 when Amanda Thompson, owner of Pleasure Beach, Blackpool announced that it would be working with American Company, Nickelodeon to bring the new Nickelodeon Land. Nickelodeon Land opened in Beaver Creeks place on 5 May 2011.[1][2]

Bradley Beaver Catering Co. Closed in 2010 after Nickelodeon Land was announced.

Many of the rides have either been re-themed and put back into place, or moved into a different part of the park and later renamed. For example, Thor's Turnpike was moved to a different place in the park and renamed Alpine Rallye, same with Veteran Carousel, which is now known as Vintage Carousel.
