“Not as good as South or North Pier”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The only thing worth checking out is the big wheel. The wheel is quite good and obviously gives good views. Other than that it is basically one big arcade of which there are thousands in Blackpool

“Watch you Don't Get Ripped Off”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Kids went on the SkyCoaster - when they landed the Show People asked if they wanted another shot - OF COURSE THEY DID - pity you didnt say to them they had to pay again - they thought it was part of the £15 they had already paid !!

Dont get me wrong - they LOVED IT - but PLEASE TELL KIDS IN FUTURE TO CHECK WITH THEIR PARENTS FIRST !!!!

“Pier is neglected beyond belief.The owners must have little business sense if they think that people will want to keep coming ba”

Depressing.Neglected beyond belief.Needs a revamp and business sense!
Should be a shining example of a great Pier but is far from it!

BlackpoolLive, Public Relations Manager at Blackpool's Central Pier, responded to this review, April 5, 2013
Sorry your visit was disappointing but on the date you have reviewed the Pier wouldn't have been fully open. By Easter the majority of the rides and attractions were operating and the Pier will be in full swing for the Summer.
