An enjoyable visit as long as you take it for what it is! Lots of rides for the younger kids, free bathrooms, a few dining establishments, etc. The original (victorian?) white metal seats are still around the outside edge and really interesting to see!

Great entertainment for the kids. Plenty to do and see. Looking a bit tired in places and the pier itself could do with some reprinting.

We found this place extremely dirty! Not well maintained at all. I wouldn't let my daughter go on the rides as they didn't look well maintained. View was good tho

Plenty to do on the pier. Always pay a visit when I'm in Blackpool. Could do with a few touch ups here and there but overall a good experience.

We visited central pier everyday, the rides for the kids are good and buying tickets you can use over 2 days is value for money although charging adults 4 tickets for the big wheel is over the top

Good entertainment for kids not as much for adults especially ones with no children. Needs improving and tidying up. Cheap drinks though

Went for a walk down central pier and it really needs some love and attention! All the benches are old, with rusty metal parts and the wooden parts splintering!
