“Crazy fun entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Southwold's Under the Pier Show attraction offers a refreshing change from the noisy slot machines and one-arm-bandits characteristic of many other English piers. Here, in a very small space, you will find some crazy, amusing, interactives that are great fun for all the family. The designer of these crazy interactives must have a very highly developed sense of humour. Most of the interactives only cost 40p a go - very good value for money. be prepared to laugh a lot when trying out these crazy attractions.

“Uniquely hilarious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Whenever we visit Southwold a trip to the Pier is a must, as is a visit to the Under the Pier Show. You will never find an amusement arcade like this anywhere else! It has something for all ages, and I am now getting very brave at the Guard Dog test, and worryingly proficient as crossing the road with a Zimmer frame! Sadly the amazing telescope at the end of the Pier wasn't working this time, but don't miss it when it is.Tim Hunkin used to have a weirdly funny page of mad machines in one of the Sunday supplements, and the Pier is what happened when he was let loose. There are good coffee shops and ice cream on the Pier too. Don't miss it.

“Such an unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

What an amazing find under the pier, I have always loved arcades and this was really an unique experience that you can't find anywhere else. We must have been on every machine, as they all have an unique twist, our favourites were the scary dog, the pirate ships game and the full body work out. It's a must visit for those with kids or big kids (like us).
