Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

If you have been to a county fair with a carnival or especially a state fair, dont waste your money. Only a couple rides for young kids. Most of the pier is the stupid midway games where you pay three dollars to win a twenty cent prize. If you never get to a good fair, you may enjoy the pier. Hoped for much more than four dollar 32 oz fountain drinks. You can drink on the pier if you dont mind spending eight dollars on a 16 oz bottle of beer. Save your money for anything else.

Rides and games were fun. More than half the staff couldn't speak or understand English. Couple of the snack bars couldn't get my order right and it was slow. But other than that...great time.

We like going to the Pleasure Pier at night...especially if there is a full moon! Where fanny packs and tennis shoes because they are Nazis about leaving your flip flops and purse on the ground during some rides.

If you like carnivals, you will like this. It is a bit pricey, but so is everything else located on the gulf. All the rides have great views.
