Being in Blackpool and not being on The Central Pier is like being in a chippy and not having fish and chips. Amusements, crazy rides , family bar skills based games, all this on one old pier. Wort your money and your friends money too :D

The poor pier itself really needs some TLC, all the beautiful victorian seating that encircles the pier has been allowed to rot and rust and fall into disrepair.... I wonder who and when or even IF this will ever be rectified as it's clearly taken years to get into this state. Loads to do for family and kids tho :-)

Not a negative review but nothing as changed in 2 years , you decide weather it's a good or bad thing . The game stalls annoy me though , constantly on your back to play even when you say no

I visited central pier with my partner & 2 year old. It is in defo need of some TLC, it could do with a good paint & restoring. The arcades are good & were very busy. It has a good selection of rides for all ages & the big wheel is the stand out ride out of all of them.... More

Went for a walk on a Saturday night, what a shocker. This pier is filthy, dated and needs an update fast. If you love tacky, shoddy dirty places to visit, this is the place to go! Come on Blackpool sort this place out, it's giving a very bad impression of a family place to stay.

Out of all three piers this one stood out more to us as there is a lot more to do on this pier.. We walked right to the end and notice that it had been tidied up and all the locks had disappeared which makes a big difference but a bit more tlc and it could be a really lovely... More

Visited Blackpool after many years on Satuday. The pier itself was lovely, it does need tidying up and some areas do look structurally dangerous and I hope Blackpool does this one day. However the reason I am only giving one star is because of the staff! They were awful. Especially the ones on the "win a prize" stalls. These were... More

So much fun years ago....now a miserable experience. Corroding disgusting place that I wish never to visit again. No atmosphere of the past. Just foul mouthed people around that look as if they are going to mug you in broad daylight. Stay away....go somewhere more welcoming.

I visit Blackpool many times over the year and each time, the central pier always looks so nice. There's always something going on there when in season and lots of fun arcades and amusement rides on the pier itself. So much fun for the family.

Nice place for a stroll, however the arcades need a revamp and it could all do with brightening up. Seems scruffy in a lot of places.
