  • It's run down and old school but then that's kind of its charm too. Father Ted and Dougal would love it.
  • Nice view not tooo special but worth a look
  • Fun rides for the kids (limited). Staff are rude and arrogant especially the dim wit on the mini extreme. South pier is much better and more fun.
  • Kids love a go on the rides, can get busy in peak/sun particularly at weekends as expected.
  • Very tatty, very down market but fun rides. Customer service in the Midway food bar is appalling where staff are extremely rude to thier clientele. The old time photography were very friendly and very helpful. They provided an excellent service.
