Perfect for younger children

Our 4 year old found plenty of rides she loved, and prices very reasonable too. For a small area they have plenty to choose from.

I have been coming here since I was a child and I still love it now. The snails are my favourite ride and that of my kids. The ride tokens are good value and work out £1 or less for a ride which is excellent. There are areas that could do with a refresh but there's lots of lovely little... More

Joyland is a mini theme park for young children. The rides are exciting and great for all Children of a young age. We took a toddler and he loved every bit! The rides take tokens not money, but it only costs one token per person per ride. Lots of photos taken and memories made! Definitely worth the trip

We were pleasantly surprised at joyland. Our 4 year old had a blast. All the rides are £1, and the last a while! There are racing cars the child can drive, diggers.. rides..and a crazy golf (which we didnt try). We spent over an hour there and spent only £10.. which considering adults had to go with the child in... More

So great for families, my boy loved the snails and although he has passed away me and my mum usually in memory go on them. We didn't this time but walked through whilst taking the dog walkies. Lovely atmosphere and not to expensive for kiddies to enjoy and parents to pay ! In a prime position right near to the... More

We brought our children here over 30 years ago and now our granddaughter. The rides are the same as they were back then but, of course, more expensive, although at £1 a go they are good value compared to some. Rides are paid via tokens and adults can go on for the same price which is both unusual but very... More

Back again for a visit to Joyland. Yes it's a bit tired, yes it's a bit dated but the kids love it. The snails and roller coaster were their favourites this year. I feel sorry for the operator of the Jet Cars....it's so NOISY! All in all tough it's fairly good value and easy to use tokens make it a... More

Hasn't changed much in years but some nice rides and still pretty good value. The barrels and snails are particularly good.
