Dirty, overpriced, unprofessional miserable staff and in need of a good clean and lick of paint to boot. If you like reasonable or even a small degree of quality avoid this place. I'm just glad I used Tesco vouchers but only cashed in £20 worth to assess what the place was like. I should have used them somewhere else.

As part of a great day on the beach we topped it off with a trip to the fun fair. It was really quiet but the staff made the effort and my daughter was able to go on every ride she wanted Not cheap but have paid more elsewhere. We had a great time.

Visited the fairground and the slot machines in the arcade. Some of the fairground rides (which operates a pre purchase token system) can be quite expensive. However, if you purchase in advance of your visit there are some worthwhile savings to be had, and can reduce your cash outlay. A pretty good fairground especially for kids.

Go here every so often. Tend to go on a Friday after 5 as it is only £1 a ride (tokens from the middle arcade) and the odd ride is £2 (2 tokens). They have rides, for the older and younger kids. Always liked this place

This park is fabulous, my family and I arrived at about 12 oclock midday we were still there at 7 oclock, my Grandchildren loved it they couldn't get enough of it, the rides were brilliant and the facilities were good, the only thing that they need more of are benches for grannies like myself to rest their weary tired feet....

Love going bowling here, great fun especially when they turn the lights out... Disco bowling is the way forward! The bars not cheap but the foods nice :) they've always got great deals on so well worth a little night out

Visited with 5 adults and 4 young kids. We all took advantage of the online discount getting tickets for the kids and wristbands for the adults. Being free entry was useful as one of our group doesn't like rides so didn't have to miss out. The rides suited all ages which was good and meant the kids had lots to... More

I went with my best friend and between us we had two 5 year olds and two 3 year olds. We were there from around 11am till 1pm. We found an offer online of 50 tickets for £15 so we started off with 100 tickets between us. Due to the age and height of our kids most of the rides... More
