Lots of rides for kids, so much fun to be had for them. The best ride has to be the classic snails, everyone loves them! The reason my score is low is because the place really needs a paint job and some love & TLC pumped into it. A lot of the rides are looking tired and seen better days.... More

We go to Joyland a lot and have been over the years. I used to go when I was younger with my family. I take my young nieces and nephew there now as my son is too old and they adore it. The snails are a firm favourite.

I used to come to Joyland all the time when I was young so was keen to see if it had changed much. I visited in August 2015 with some friends. The place was as I remember it, it is very compact but has a great, 'fun' feel to the place, it's great. Some people might complain that it needs... More
