“Cheeky con men!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We originally wanted to visit the family bar. The constant pestering of the games men completely put us off. They wouldn't accept no for an answer so in the end we had to completely blank them. The fairground part was extortionate. Then to top it all off the rest of the pier was blocked off so no family bar visit.

“The aggressive stallholders seem to have been told to behave!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Our previous visit here was ruined by overly aggressive stallholders trying to force us to play their games but this time was totally different - they all had a smile and none of them tried to force us into anything.
Toilets are badly signposted though and are rank!

“North piers better”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

It's an ok place to visit but as all over blackpool the people on the side stalls try to pressure you into having a go at winning something off them. If only they work out that when you say your not interested then your not interested. We went to the bar at lunchtime in half term week where there were plenty of families but they would have got more in if they had bothered to put entertainment on for the kids. But I guess they would have pay for that !
