  • Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed spending the day here. We had lots of fun on the roller coasters and the staff was all polite. But as are day came to an end, we returned to the lockers to get are bags, yet they was not in there. I really panicked as there was no notification or announcement saying where the bags had been taken. Luckily a women had seen us looking confused and told us that the staff had taken our bags to lost property. We had paid for the lockers for a full day, and expected to return to them with all are stuff in. Not empty lockers. This ruined are day and I really was not impressed. Pleasure beach you need to leave a note saying where things have gone or atleast wait longer.
  • The operation of some of the rides within the park is questionable with the majority of the big rides being on one train operation the queues begin to build up. Some of the older roller coasters such as the Grand National are really rough and quite painful to ride and Steeplechase ended up leaving my sister with a bruise across her belly from the seatbelt as the carriage came to an abrupt stop at the end of the ride.
  • Buy the £30 wrist band - there are enough brilliant rides to justify it. The area is small compared to Alton Towers etc. but it fits a lot of great rides in that area. Obviously "The Big One" is the highlight and it is a great ride. Some of the other old roller coast rides will surprise you. The Valekerie log flume ride is brilliant as well - and you WILL get soaked! Really good off peak and on a sunny day!
  • With 3 kids aged between 3 and 5 a wristband would be a waste of money because they wouldn't benefit so just paying for the odd ride is the best option but sadly you can't just walk around it anymore. If you dont want a wristband which is a great idea for older kids your charged £6 each just to walk around now. So we would be charged £30 just for the pleasure of looking around. No pleasure at all anymore as a few years you could just walk around and pay if you wanted to go on the odd ride. As usual it's all about money now. Won't be going there anymore.....
  • Theme park with renowned roller coasters such as the Big Dipper, Blue Flyer, Grand National, Nickelodeon Streak and Wild Mouse.  The most popular ride is the Big One currently the tallest roller coaster in the UK Fantastic place to visit. Staff are kind and easy to deal with. Rides available for both children, the young and the young at heart. Chargeable cash point available at entrance. Lots of places to buy food or drinks once inside.
