Easy to get on and off the rides. Chilly rainy night but still had a great time. We are going down to the Mardi Gras festivities today. The price was really cheap for the all day rides. 20 dollars

You are allowed to change the color, but not the structure of a house in the East End Historic District. This means the houses look the same now as they did in the 1880's when most were built. Most of Galveston was raised after the...More

Came here to check it out, cost 10$ just to get on the pier even if you didn't want to go on the rides. A little rediculous if you ask me. My daughter enjoyed the rides.

It’s a little pricey, but a lot of stuff along the coast is. It’s a small, almost nostalgic amusement area. We come to Galveston regularly and finally gave it a try. Wristbands allow all you can ride. The lines were not bad at all even...More

What a great idea, beautiful views, neat rides, carnival food all right on the water. We went in the evening in December so it was quiet. Some of the big rides were closed but they told you that before you paid the discounted rate, very...More

While this attraction may have been tolerable if we were doing Pleasure Pier as a whole combo, but as a single attraction, the description does not match the experience thus making it not worth the price for a few slow minutes of a movie.

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!
