“Lovely For Little People”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is very nice for toddlers and very young children it has a very nice atmosphere with some cute little rides, if you have toddlers young kids go straight to Joyland and give the Pleasure Beach a miss they will love any little rides and amusements

“great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Joyland is situated next to the Britannia Pier and hasn't changed in years! But this is a good thing. It's aimed at children and I find it so nostalgic to see the Snails, a ride over a tiny big dipper in a huge made-up snail. I used to love this ride as a child and can still remember being told off by my parents for not holding on! But I was only copying the little boy before me ;)

“Great fun for a 6 year old”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

My Daughter had so much fun here. All the rides were perfect for age and she was over the moon at being able to go on them all on her own! Her favourite was the spook and I even managed to sneak a ride on the Snails with her.

Everyone we encountered was really friendly and it just added to the overall enjoying.

The only reason this is not a 5 star review is the fact that they were belting out Britney Spears' - Piece of Me - on loop for the two hours we were there, it was enough to nearly send me insane! I'm not sure how the people working there coped, especially around by the ferris wheel where it was at it's loudest!

Overall though, we had a fantastic few hours here and will definitely be back!

This is a simple fun and friendly place, for all the family.
The snails ride has been there for more than 35 years!
