Fun rides, gorgeous beach

We went on just a few rides; played the mini golf and go-carts which were good fun. The best part is the beach close by. It is one of the most beautiful beaches we have been on in... read more

No really big rides but great British seaside pleasure park which the kids really enjoyed. All rides are paid with tickets / tokens bought at booth before you go on. Not expensive compared to other places.

We went in July before the English schools broke up and were disappointed that there was only limited rides open despite being told on the phone the day before that only the roller coaster would be closed As wristbands weren't available again because it wasn't the English school holidays we had booked online ride tickets but it took us visits...

Very expensive for what is offered, and the fairground staff don't look to keen on their jobs (not that I blame them!)

Very good value for money. Kids had a great day on the rides and in the amusements the 2 pence machines could do with being kept topped up with the little toys. That's what the kids like to put pounds worth of 2 pences in. All staff were friendly and helpful and ensured the kids were strapped into the rides... More
