    Had a great time, gave myself a limit of five pounds as I know how you can end up spending a lot in these ticket arcades if you don't limit yourself. There were a lot of choice for machines to play on...  more »

    A good blustery day activity, quite a few things to do. Some machines wouldn't accept my coins but other than that it was a successful day out.  more »

    People will be shocked to learn that Pleasureland in Arbroath is one of the most divisive places and topics in the whole of the United Kingdom. Visit on a cold pre-holiday day and you could be forgive...  more »

  • Oops made error coming here and spending couple of pound as roof was coming down in more ways than one, lost my cash and there's massive hole in ceiling which if it were to give way would do someone a serious injury I take it health and safety are unaware of this JUST NOW. Also one of the local guys said to me that the owner who is colour blind rewired the electrics as did not want to spend money on a fully qualified electrician SHOCKING. I had to give it one star otherwise I wouldn't be able to write this review.
  • Amusement arcade suitable for all ages. Does appear a bit dated now, but then I have been going there for over 30 years. Some rides and attractions have height limits, so make sure you check these before you buy the tokens to go on them. Once younger kids get above a certain height, they will probably only really want to go on the dodgems. The human gyro and waltzer are probably not an going to be of interest to some. Shorter kids can get onto the trampolines, inflatables, merry go round and some other smaller rides, so more for them to do. Some games and rides provide tickets to claim prizes at the end of your stay. However, as the good prizes require a large number of tickets, it can take a while to get enough together. However, you can put your tickets into a machine and get a receipt to let you snowball them up over a few visits. Pleasureland is not a bad place to spend a few hours, but you might be better off going to Jumping Joeys instead, especially if you have taller, but still young, kids. Slot machines are very poor as some are only paying out 70%, so don't expect to be winning much back when you put your money in. There are 2p machines and these can provide more entertainment as they take longer to take all your money.
  • Fun day out for the kids on a budget
  • Obviously aimed at kids this is a surprisingly large enterprise. Housed in what looks like a generic, large factory unit, it's home to the usual "penny falls" machines, one-armed bandits, video games etc but it also has some physical fairground rides like waltzers, dodgems etc. As an adult I found it pretty boring but it kept the kids amused for an hour or so. A reminder of the halycon days of British seaside holidays
  • Has the be the most dull place to call itself 'pleasurable'. It's in need of a big revamp, and some livening up, because it hasn't changed in the whole time I've known it to be around.
