Everything in one place for kids, arcades, 4D cinema, rides and cafes but all a little expensive though you can buy a wristband for £12.50 for unlimited rides which cost individual from £2-£5 each, worth a visit though

Now not only do you have to pay to use the slot machines, you have to pay to access the pier!! Seems to me as they are just money hungry! Toilets now cost to use too. It may only be 20p, but for a group of 6 that's £1.20 each time... And I'm pretty sure your aware how often kids... More

I was quite surprised at the charge to enter but upon entering it was rather pleasant. 12.50 for an unlimited band which would more then cover itself if you went on every ride once, however once you've seen the rides there wasn't much else to be fair. It is a big arcade with closed shops on the way in, it... More

Having prevoiusly visited the Pier several times before and spent money on food, rides etc whilst there , we were surprised when we visited yesterday you now have to pay £1 each just to go on to the Pier ? It is strange that there is a charge to go into, what basically is a Shop where you spend money... More

A very imposing structure, but doesn't open until 10 am. Then a long, but pleasant, stroll past a multitude of unopened shops, into a building housing a raucous arcade. Past that, though, at the end, is Tiffany's Edwardian Tea Room, with beautiful views, refreshing food and tea/coffe, and wonderful service. Gets you ready for the walk back!

Absolutely loved the new Grand Pier! It provides a lovely stroll along the promenade with great views of Weston Super Mare and the Pier itself has something for everyone. There are rides, games and slot machines which provide fun for young and old. I had a fabulous game on the air hockey table before heading for Jack's Bar where you... More

Visited for the first time since it burnt down just to see what it was like. Little seemed to have changed to me except for addition of £1 entrance fee - similar train, similar noisy and expensive fun house - how much money do people with families have, to be able to afford attractions like this? Tiffany's café was very... More

A sunny and hot Saturday afternoon - and naturally the pier was very busy. As first time visitors to the area we thought the rebuilt Grand Pier looked very impressive. The design of the building is modern yet sympathetic to the old Victorian/Edwardian pavilions. There are turnstiles which take £1 per person to step foot on the pier. £1 is... More

The pier was clean and well presented and was bigger than it appeared from the outside. Shouldn't have to pay to go on the pier but if so there should be a hand stamp so you have the option to come and go for the day but only pay once. The rides were expensive, with the best rides averaging at... More
