The funfair on Central Pier is much better value for money than the Pleasure Beach if you have small children. My 2 year old absolutely loved it.

I have been visiting blackpool for 30 years one of my favourite areas has always been central pier up until this last visit. The pier is an absolute disgrace.

We recently visited central pier and my 3 year old daughter loved it . She went on the carousel and played arcades , it's all tokens for rides so you can't pay to get on rides directly and they are a bit pricey .

Took a walk up central pier only to be harassed half a dozen times by guys with silly games on offer to won rubbish prizes, sadly when you say politely no thankyou you get a snide comment, the amusement arcade could do with a major spruce up, and I appreciate many people use the toilet facilities through the day, but...

Went to see 'Stars' acts, originally Legends? Visited October 2013. Very disappointing. It was 7.30pm and finished just after 9pm. Cost £15 per adult. Hardly anyone in the place! Finished just after 9pm. No atmosphere. Some of the acts were good. Shame really as some didn't get the support they deserved. Needless to say, won't be visiting again.
