There was a time when the Polo Tower was a frequently visited landmark in the resort.
Peering high above the Bay coastline the tower offered spectacular views of the town.
It was originally known as the Space Tower and was built at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in 1974.
The tower was moved in 1993 to make way for the Big One rollercoaster and rebuilt at the Morecambe Wild West theme park in 1994 and opened the following year.
A half-million pound investment by then-Frontierland owners Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the tower was sponsored by Polo.
It was originally a revolving ride and many took the opportunity to scale or abseil it in a bid for their chosen charities.
But after initially proving popular it eventually fell into disrepair and has stood on the seafront unused – other than for a telecommunications mast – for almost 20 years.
Now the minty tube is undergoing demolition to make way for a proposed £17m shopping park on the former Frontierland site.
In this week’s Looking Back we take a look at some of the Polo Tower’s iconic moments.
