This is a great place to come to keep the younger kids entertained for a few hours. They have a go-kart track and a small rollercoaster for the older kids but not much else. Nevertheless it's a fun day out, especially when the weather is nice

with many of the fairground rides and not too expensive, this permanent fun fair is ideal for children and there is something there for the adults as well. If roller coasters are not your thing then maybe a game of crazy pirate golf, always good for a laugh, or maybe the amusement arcade, where many of the machines take 2p's... More

On a Friday evening after 5pm it is only £1 a ride which means £30 quid goes a long way and makes a great evening for the kids.

We bought our wrist bands online as it worked out slightly cheaper than buying them on the day.

Although it's not the biggest theme park it's still well worth a look top tip Friday nights after 5pm all rides are £1 great way to start the weekend

If a load of unregistered men charging ridiculous amount of money for shoddy, run down rides with flaky paint is your idea of a good time, please come here. It's just awful, and please wear earplugs unless you like a constant stream of profanity from tracksuit clad groups of young lads.

Authentic, old school seaside fun. Arcades, rides, crazy golf, amusements, candy floss, shove h'a'penny, fish n chips... all the fun of the fair. Evertone's cup of tea for 30 minutes or maybe longer...
