  • Grandchildren loved the Pleasureland experience with a variety of vides from the big wheel, log flume, waltzes and dodgem cars. Luckily grandma and grandad kept their feet safely on the floor. Smaller...  more »
  • Visited with my 2 children who are 4 and 8. We were at southport for the day. There is a good variety of rides, but the prices were a let down. I had to pay 2 pound to get 2 cards (1 for me and 1 for ...  more »
  • The rides are paid for by tokens. It costs £1 for the card and £1 per token. Most Rides cost 3 to 4 tokens per ride per person. So some are a little expensive for the short amount of time that you get...  more »

  • We came here on the 24/10 during half term. It was lovely and quiet. The Halloween theme throughout the park was great fun and we found it relatively good value. It would be better if each ride was clearer on how many tokens it cost, and if Adults had to pay as well to accompany the child. One a couple 3 token rides I had to accompany my 4 year old. On one of the rides I didn't have to pay which was great, but on 2 of the rides I did, so it cost £6 effectively. I would return.
  • Super friendly staff. Great theme park for young children. 90% of the rides are either family rides or are for small children. Never have to queue for rides. Payment is by pre paid cards with 'tokens' costing £1 each. Each ride then deducts two or three 'tokens' from your card each time you ride. Most staff let adults on with young kids for free which is a really nice touch. Can take dogs if they are on a lead. They do donuts and fish n chips. You can take your own food and there are loads of picnic benches throughout the park. Gents toilets need some serious renovating but that's the only complaint.
  • Have to say the staff are exceptional. I have a ten year old boy who has autism. The staff were very accommodating on all rides. Our last ride was the roller coaster. My son wanted to ride on his own at first but took a shine to one of the supervisor' s (Kris), he asked him to ride with him. This guy went that extra mile. He took my son round twice giving him loads of time and understanding and got plenty of smiles from him. Exceptional people skills. I come from a fire service background and I can see genuine great professionalism in Kris. Can't rate him high enough.
  • Really good but the rides are a bit poor, other wise very fun and enjoyed it a lot. Great picnic spots and lots of activities. Thumbs up!👍
  • More suitable for under 13's ✓ Our Age Range • Group of 10, aged between 3 and 27 ✓ Parking Costs • Theme park full day parking £6* • Private car park (across the road) full day parking £2* • Beach/pier parking £1.10 for one hour, £4.20 for anything over 1 hour and free after 8pm * Both car parks close at 7pm ✓ Theme Park Ride Payment System • Entry is free. You then buy a fun card for £1 (see picture) and top it up with any amount of cash which can be used to go on rides. (I would recommend topping up just £10 to start off) Each ride costs between 1.50 and 3 pounds/tokens. If two or three people want to go on the same ride then you will need that many cards. You can't use one card on one ride for multiple people but you can use one card for different rides for multiple people ✓ Checking amount on 'Fun Card' • Can only be done by the ride operator when paying for a ride (inconvenient) ✓ The rides • Teacups and Saucers • The observation wheel • Two rollercoasters • Grand Canyon • Merry Go Rounds • Dodgems (WILD!!) • Log flume and lots more! ✓ Theme Park Age Range • I would say most of the rides are for 1-10 year olds and a few for 10-16. I wouldn't recommend this theme park for 16+'s ✓ Southport Beach • The beach is a 1 minute drive away from the theme park so it makes a perfect end to the day. Pay & display parking available along the promenade ✓ Theme Park Staff • Most of the ride operators were very friendly but some were very grumpy and gave very short rides. The friendly ones give longer rides! ✓ Facilities • Cash machines on site • Clean toilets with (freezing) cold water • Disabled toilet access • Baby changing facilities • Town centre just round the corner ✓ Amount Spent • We spent £17 per person on the rides (£170 in total). It could have been a lot less had we not topped up a large amount to start off with. In the end we had quite a bit leftover so we were just going on the rides to finish the money off really ✓ Summary • A nice day out with the family
