The special project is in aid of CALM, a charity that offers suicide-prevention support.

Musical writer Nick said: “This online musical has brought so many theme park fans together at a time when we all have to stay apart.

“Blackpool is a massive part of our hearts and we will miss heading up there this February to enjoy its many wonderful attractions.

“It’s a tough time for so many so we’re delighted to be supporting CALM.

“We encourage you to donate to this wonderful charity that supports men who are struggling at this time.

“I’m also thrilled Aroma Prime will donate all the profits they raise from the smell they’re creating for the musical to CALM.

“Aroma Prime’s involvement is the scented icing on the cake and will really enhance the immersive experience we hope this musical will offer theme park fans alike.”

The musical will be available to enjoy on Nick’s YouTube channel from 7:30pm on February 6.

AromaPrime describes the scent as giving the ‘strong essence of the Blackpool ocean carried by the wind, splattering against vast roller coasters of wood and steel’.

Liam Findlay, themed scent consultant at AromaPrime, said: “AromaPrime was founded in Blackpool in 1973, so the town and its attractions are important to us.

“We were delighted to help recreate its essence for this musical, and to donate the profits to CALM.”
