I love the new pier! Very bright and clean, welcoming and lots for all the family. Loads of nice little touches everywhere you look, a great tourist attraction for Weston Super Mare and more than worth the £1 to get in.

Good to see the old British seaside traditions like the old Pier can still draw the crowds, well maintained & modern features inside with plenty for the youngsters - well for a few hours at least.

Lovely trip on the pier today, I was on a weekend break with my mum and 2 children aged 5 and 2, we stayed in burnham and visited Weston for the day on our way home. We were really looking forward to the pier but disappointed at now having to pay a £1 entrance per person. I understand the reasons... More

Didnt like the fact that had to pay £1.00 per person, it was ok as we were a couple but if we were here as a family it would have cost £6.00 per time, and didnt like the fact that you never knew when it was closing in the evening. only the turnstyles knew how many people were on the... More

My family and myself love arcades when we visit beach locations. Afraid to say every time we have visited weston its been raining but gives us an excuse to visit here. Kids would love it so many machines. Noisy and tacky everything you want from somewhere like this.

We took our children for the first time yesterday to Weston on a "supposedly" long day trip and couldn't believe when we were told to leave the pier at 7pm ... Especially as it is the school summer holidays. When we left the pier we noticed everywhere else was closed as well ! We had to drive home 100 miles... More

The pier was as you would expect, lots of arcade games to keep children amused. It cost £1 per person to enter & then you had all the arcades, dodgems etc.......fun for kids but nothing overly special

Entrance fee to the pier is now £1 when in previous years it was free. The pier now feels terribly like a money making scheme..... Wristbands for rides are £12.50 which again is extortionate for the few rides that an 8 year old can use. You can't take a picnic with you to cut down on costings , as only... More

Very good but it will leave a large hole in your pocket! You could spend a fortune here on the go karts, arcade, etc so you've be warned Lol
