Overview

Following the disastrous fire in July 2008 that destroyed the Pavilion at Weston-super-Mare’s top attraction, The new multi-million pound Pavilion, opened its doors in October 2010. The all-weather venue has fantastic views of the shoreline, beach and sea and inside you will discover some of the best coastal entertainment, rides & attractions the South West has to offer.

Went good friday, had a fantastic time, well worth buying wrist bands for unlimited rides including go karting! Wrist bands were only £15 each and the kids had their moneys worth within the 1st half hour. Will definitely be back soon

It was a shock having to pay just to enter the pier, especially as you spend money in there, also disappointed that there we lots of outdoor sitting areas but you weren't allowed to eat your own picnic!More

Everything in there was over priced. Plus tbh considering how impressive it is from the outside I am shocked how poor it was on the inside.More

Looks impressive from the outside but tbh seemed like a money grabbing place. Everything was expensive and the staff seemed very moody the whole time. Better off going to the arcades and having some lunch somewhere else IMOMore
