  • Used to come here as a kid so decided to take the kids. The fairground now works on a pre paid card that you have to load with money. They then swipe the card, the credit comes off and you go on your ...  more »
  • took the grand kids and they loved it --not many big rides but that didn't seem to bother them---this is so much better than the over busy Blackpool pleasure beach. 
  • Nice firework display and bonfire. Although no one clearly checked which way the wind was going to be blowing as hay bails near by kept setting on fire (made the night more amusing). Very busy and the...  more »

  • A big change from years ago! Now free to go in and just wander around watching the fun. Plenty of seating for older legs. You need to buy a plastic card on a lanyard which you wear around your neck with tokens (credits) on it for payment for the rides. Average price for rides, two tokens, £2. A little bit steep but the kids think it's worth it for a treat.
  • Rides are £2-£3 in tokens and you need to buy a token card. Whatever it says the terms on the card states it only good for one season. They should make the price of the card an e-token to use towards the ride. It's doesn't feel shoddy and rundown like it did few years back and it has nice ambiance. They could make some of the rides last few minutes longer. The rides are no Blackpool pleasure Beach, some are similar to a local fair. The food thing is pay per ride rather than paying an entrance fee.
  • Visited over May Bank Holiday weekend. Going on previous reviews I was unsure how good it would be, well it ended up a great day out there. Management have obviously listened to customers feedback. The main change is how the electronic token card system now works. Previous reviews said you needed one card per person and a minimum top up of £10 was needed; this is (thankfully) no longer true. You can have just one card (£1 to purchase) and then top up any amount you like. Good selection of rides for all ages, my kids (between 10 and 19) were all entertained. The place appeared well maintained and cleaned, pretty sure I didn't spot any litter anywhere. They have now added a new, as yet unsigned, entrance on the promenade next to the petrol go carts too. Great day out, will return.
  • There is definitely plenty for the family to do here, although i think the token prices are a rip off especially for the kids rides. Like £4 for 4 minutes in a little ball on water is extortion. You can waste £20 in less than 10 minutes so to get the most out of your day your best taking at least £60.
  • Free entry, pay as you ride great day out and hosts special events throughout the year
