  • It's ideal for kids above a mtr + 5 as this is the height restriction for most of the rides. There is plenty of food stalls the kids love it but I found it a bit boring 
  • Loves it here as a kid. Absolutely awful now, wish I hadn't wasted our money. It was as if the job centre are giving out free tickets to everyone on benefits who is a heroin addict! Maybe of there wer...  read more »

  • Nice and quiet - which is good - lovely, helpful, cheerful staff. The food was expensive, but they need money to run the park, don't they? Also, the rides were family-friendly as there were rides for the little kids to adults. I DEFINITELY WOULD GO AGAIN. But the paintwork is peeling, from what i've heard, there used to be lots more rides which were so much more fun. The sealion show is amazing, they do things I'd never be able to do! Be prepared to be blown away by them. The toilets weren't as nice as the ones at other places to say the least. there's what looks like scribbles on the walls, and there was a sign saying male and female cleaners would be there. Seriously? That manky toilet looked like it'd never been washed in years.
  • Okay, rides break down too much and the log flume's water is awful in colour and smell because they rarely clean it overall though it's always calm and there is rarely queues.
  • We couldn't be any happier with our recent trip to Pleasurewood Hills. The wait times were almost non existent, and the park was very well presented. If you manage to find an offer for tickets that's even better 😊
  • Overpriced for what it is. Rides constantly breaking down. Deco looked straight out of 1996. Staff had a "don't really care" attitude and sounded like mono toned robots when talking to you. Really not worth going
  • I've been coming here since it was just a Sunday Market. Over the years it grew and the amount of rides increased. Sadly the park seems to be in decline now. Sites sit empty where rides once stood. Then paintwork is consistently old and untidy. Rides are often missing a few boats or cars. This causes massive queues on busy days. The broken cars get taken away, but never fixed or replaced. The water on the water rides is disgusting in colour and smell. Pathways lead to rides that aren't there any more. I can't remember the last time I visited and all the rides were in operation. Gone is the death slide, Wild West area, hillbilly moonshine, miniature fairground, hall of holograms, Cinema 180 and plenty more. Expect to find empty spaces and an amusement park well past it's wonder years. The focus seems to be more on profit now than fun. A little hard to recommend.
