  • You can't pay ten bucks just to walk on the pier. All the attractions are also paid. Too bad, could attract more public if the input value was more affordable or even free

  • The historic pleasure pier is to look but not walk on. If you want to take a stroll, you will part with $10. Its pretty at night with all the lights, but its underwhelming during the day 
  • This is an ok place. Mostly for tourists. I took my kids here one Saturday afternoon just to get out of the house. It's a little on the pricey side for what they have to offer. You pay admission, then...  more »

  • Such a great place to spend the day and make some memories! It is expensive so be prepared to spend some cash. I would suggest getting the unlimited ride pass. Its good for all the rides and if I remember correctly also covers the cost to get on the pier.
  • Place is amazing, the rides are fun and usually the lines aren't to long. The prices aren't bad either the unlimited band is $26 all in all I would definitely recommend going here. The only problem I have is their loose items must be taken off I had to take off my prescription glasses, it's for every ride no exception on how small the ride. No amusement park I've ever been to has this rule. It's also the only reason I can't give them a perfect score that rule really hurt my experience because when I went on the really high swings to look around I can't see very well without my glasses.
  • It was nice. Cost $10 just to walk in the place, but if you are going to ride some rides you are in for a treat. Pretty cool area and nice experience. Would recommend especially for kids
  • Pretty good fun for the kids, some thrilling rides. Not too big in size of overall length of pier, which limits number of attractions it can provide. But we'll worth a visit for families while in Galveston.
  • Really fun but they do make you take off glasses before all rides. This place is a real gem on the Seawall. I'd recommend it for date nights for the under 40 crowd or young at heart. Also a must for folks with kids. I wanted to give them 5 stars but the glasses thing really felt like I brought my mom along. (No offense mom)
