The Historical Pleasure Pier draws attention from far and wide. Anchored by the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company that flanks the entrance, there is pure fun beyond with rides of all types arrayed along the Pier with spectacular views of the water. This is where you...More

My family and I enjoyed a few hours here and there was plenty to see and do. As it was so quiet we didn't have to wait for any rides and we felt that we really got our money's worth.

Was disappointed that other than Bubba Gump,the pier was closed except for weekends while i was there and you had to pay just to walk through it. If i remember correctly the cheapest bracelet was $24 each person.

The Historic Pleasure pier is a Tillman Fertita venture that replaces the old pier with a new incarnation geared toward kids and families. You will find a roller coaster, a water ride, a high Texas chair swing ride, a Ferris wheel and other kiddie rides,...More

Obviously, this is a money grab. BUT it’s a fun one. Enjoyed this MUCH better than other Landry spots (Kemah Boardwalk and Downtown Aquarium). It has more rides for the entire family than the Aquarium, and you’re not as limited as Kemah in food choices...More

This place reminds me of the piers in California. Restaurants, rides and fun. Definitely worth a look while in town.

Eat at Bubba Gump's or Fishtales and you park free (usually $10). With Landrys Select Card, earn points - $25 after 250 points. Pleasure Pier charges to enter the rides area no matter where you eat. Even if you don't ride... More

Wow! Two hours for the pier, and the previous comments are all quite accurate. Having some great "teenagers" and TEXAS style food on the pier is defintely a must. You will not be disappointed!
