They enjoyed the £51million attraction’s rides, including a trial on the first public Formula One simulator.

Some of the other prizes worth £5,000 include a photoshoot in Italy with a one week stay at the five-star hotel Raito on the Amalfi coast.

Organisers say the contest is being taken back to its roots after starting in seaside locations over 50 years ago.

The first final was originally contested as the Bathing Beauty Queen in Morecambe in 1945. It was watched by 4,300 people in a continuous downpour.

The winner was 18-year-old local girl Lydia Reid, a civil service typist, who received a paltry prize of seven guineas and a swimsuit.

Film star Diana Dors took part in the contest in the 1940s.
