Great value for money when you purchase an unlimited wristband for the rides. Lots to do under one roof.

We decided to get wristbands so our children could just chill without keep digging around for money. They were a fantastic buy offering great value. We certainly got our money's worth. The rides are good and well staffed. Only one activity wasn't working, but they quickly set about fixing it. Didn't impact on us as there was so much else... More

To be honest this place was my kind of a nightmare as I dislike big loud arcades - however it would be unfair to slate it as the pier itself is fantastic and offers great views across the beach. It was £1 to gain access to the pier which if you're on a one off visit is fine - season... More

The Pier itself is amazing and they cater for everyone from the arcades to the ice cream parlour, the go carts and the Edwardian Tea Rooms. The only sad thing is the £1 charge per person including children, I agree with making a charge and based on the fact that children can't go in the Pier by themselves why not... More

We visited Weston after a trip to Dawlish and was presently surprised the front promenade caters for high volumes of cars with plenty of spaces and there is a good walk to the pier. The only downside it that it was the middle of July on a hot sunny day and some of the ice cream sellers has run out... More

We visited yesterday, this one being our only visit as a family since 2012, we found it extremely pricey! Before you could enter the pier for free now everyone has to pay a pound! Yes you can get back on again if someone in your group has a wrist band for the rides. Surely they reap in enough form the... More

Not much to say other than I loved going back here since the Pier was rebuild following the big fire that destroyed the original. The design is a bit more modern and not quite as charming as the old but inside retains the same fun-packed feel and really enjoyed it. Some friends of mine said they didn't go in last... More
