The party, held at the theme park on Saturday, February 6, kicked off a year of celebrations.
They had exclusive use of the park with West Lancs Scouts, who are based in Goosnargh, also joining a world record attempt for most people singing: “if you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.”
Ethan, part of 1st Broughton Cubs in Preston said: “I joined for the fun and adventure! I’ve met loads of new friends”.
David, who led the Cub Scouts to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, added: “Satisfaction of seeing girls and boys developing their start in lives”.
The party was part of the Cubs 100 celebrations commemorating one hundred years.
The Scout Association is hoping that Cubs 100 will help tp increase the number of adult volunteers and continue to grow year on year.
The Preston District has over 1700 currently active and it is hoped that 2016 will see the most active members ever.
