Fun area for young children

Great little area for the youngsters! My 2 year old cousin loved it, the snail ride here is much better than the one at the pleasure beach!!!

Took three of our grandchildren for an afternoon out and they loved every minute of it , not badly price you buy a bag of 20 tokens and get 5 tokens free fo £20 . Each ride cost £1 token . So one bag was enough to have 1 go on each attraction for all 3 of the children.

Compared to rides at Britannia Pier, this is cheap. But, so is the quality of the rides. All of the rides need a good makeover and looks tired. Staff not friendly nor, helpful. My 4-year-old daughter almost fell when she was getting off one of the rides. The person in charge of the ride was inches away from her and... More

We visited Joyland over August 31st Bank Holiday Weekend, it was still how I remember it as a child over 25 years ago. The staff were helpful and Joyland is a lovely retro little place for small children to enjoy, definitely worth a visit. The prices for the rides are very reasonable too! :)

Issued to visit here with my family 20 odd years ago and nothing has really changed apart from them now taking photos on a couple of the rides so you spend even more money after buying the non refundable tokens. Found the staff rude and non responsive. Only decent thing is that my children enjoyed it.

All rides are accessible by "Tokens" available at kiosks or machine, they cost £1 each and each ride is one token, with just the one child, if you don't want to sit on a ride with your child, you can get away with purchasing 6 and they will be able to enjoy every attraction, my Son enjoyed the "Spooky" ghost...

It is so refreshing to see that even in our ever evolving world, some things remain unchanged. As a child I visited Joyland, and it is with great excitement I now bring my own family to share something I loved so dearly way back many moon ago! Please keep this National Treasure up and running for many years to come.... More
