For kids only, there is no joy in this place for adults, ran by miserable people with no manners, if you're a child you don't have to put up with this or even understand what it is so.

South Shields is becoming a popular day out for children. There are many facilities to occupy their day. The Ocean Beach Pleasure Park fits in well. Good rides for all ages, they offer a wristband online which saves money and offers discount on food and drink..

Although this is my Hometown fair it is such a disappointment. Although some of the rides are still okay, the arcades are all well out dated and in a state of disrepair. Some of the games and machines are the same ones that were there when I was a kid.
