“Awesome”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had a fun relaxing time here. This is a very clean, well-secured park. There were no long lines for the rides. The workers were very nice, polite, and informative. We are annual ticket holders of Disney World and just visited there a couple of weeks ago and I much rather the day I spent at Paradise Pier. It was a relaxing, no hustle, no hype, park. My 7 year old daughter had a blast!

“Great family entertainment. Reasonable price”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed all of the rides. The lines were not long. You can ride everything as many times as you want. Beware of the one water ride that is in the middle of the pier, if you walk to close to it at the wrong time, you will get wet. Lol Every staff member we came in contact was very friendly. The live band was very good and played a very wide variety of music. Lots of family fun at a reasonable price.

“Take your family to the Pleasure Pier!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a great time and rode the rides several times! Good food and great view of the city and the sun set! We bought a wristband for unlimited rides and that was the best value for us.

“Very good addition”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great addition to Galveston since Ike hit. The area is a bit iffy at night, but on weekends, there is A LOT of police and security presence. The pier is nice and lively with a lot to do for kids and teens. They can get bored however, but the nights on the pier are the best.

You can also take a free shuttle to the Rainforest Cafe and stroll down the seawall.

“Expensive and boring”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Why pay for amusement park prices for 5 rides? We paid to get in, and found only 2 rides suitable for kids. Everything else in there also costs a fortune. We were done in 20 minutes and left. Lame! What a waste of money!
