cheerful pier

Pier look like its been revamped. The machines all look new and clean. Better prizes here than the road where the others arcades are.

Ideal fun centre if you have children who like arcade games and bouncy castles.Food shacks and a cafe are available.The cafe prices looked quite pricey though.

After spending a small fortune on the pier , we noticed a lot of the machine were design to con the players, especially the grab a Paddington bear..... Each time we grabbed it the claw would pick it each time and At the exact timing drop it from the claws.......one one would ever win .I don't mind spending money but... More

This great little pier contains all the basic ingredients for a fun hour or two: a huge variety of arcade games under cover, a small fair at the end, food and toilets. Best of all it's free to walk around! What more could you ask for?

Sums up a lot of the plastic tat that is Paignton. Had to visit as mother-in-law wanted to see it. Loud noise and music, flashing lights, screaming kids and pouring with rain. I'd rather have a root filling

A very nice pier that benefits from carpet almost throughout the covered area. Very varied machines and something for all ages.
