From 6.30pm on each Saturday through the summer holidays from July 31 to August 28, visitors will enter a gateway into a tropical setting.

With unlimited rides through the three-hour session, they will be entertained by top DJs playing club hits, dancers performing on and around the rides, pop-up cocktail bars and a host of street entertainers, billed as "giving the site the full festival feeling."

Aimed at all ages visitors are invited to embrace the theme by wearing flower garlands and Hawaiian shirts.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms in the area between 12pm and 9pm on Saturday.

Aaron Jones, the Pleasure Beach’s development director, said: "I'm still feeling incredibly positive about the event.

"We're prepared to adjust.

"We'll be handing out free rain macs to customers if the weather turns bad.

"And there are positions available for the dancers to continue performing under shelter.
