I'm not very keen on the fair and I ever have been, although there are some good rides, I only found the dodgems bearable. Also I do think that they charge quite a lot of money for tickets when the tickets do run out quite quickly. It is a fun day out however since there is amusements and a beach... More

A lovely fairground with great arcades, several rides for wee ones - usual tea cups ladybirds etc then a few rides for those more daring. Go carts are great fun and have to say priced well too. It's a token system - go to the big white arcades in the park and a glass booth sells bulk tokens in groups... More

Something for all the family and the rides are pretty cheap so you can treat the whole family! Lots of places to sit and eat and pretty good views of the beach

Don't listen to people whining about overpriced. All I can say is they are greedy people who don't like paying. Very reasonable priced rides and good priced food so all in all value for money. Loved the day and so did our kids so 1 very happy customer and can't wait to go back

This fairground has been around since I was a kid 35 years ago... many of the rides are still the same in fact! They are rather basic compared to most bigger places, but our kids really enjoy it every time we visit anyway... it's a traditional seaside funfair, with dodgems, flying saucers, kiddie trains, a couple of roller coasters, 'amusements',...

We've visited the pleasure park a few times previously but this time we took advantage of some tesco vouchers we had. Saying that the cost of tickets to go on the ride aren't to badly priced at 50p a ticket but you do get more for your money buying in bulk. For kids rides you pay on average 3 tickets... More
