This place has great potential as there is nothing else like it but it would need time and money invested in it to bring it up to today's standards. It's a proper old fashioned traditional park with original rides. Heater skelter. Roundabouts etc. Rides are...More

We took 4 of my 5 grandchildren aged 18months to 9 yrs. The place is very old, dirty, broken down and I was frightened for the safety of the children. Pleasant staff but after spending £10 on tokens we left before spending them all because...More

The Pleasure Park seemed like it was stuck in the 1940's. All rides very run down and out dated. Even a lick of paint would make this place look a lot better. The slides are the best thing but the kids got stuck every time...More

Lots of olden day childhood attractions plus tramplolines. Staff very helpful, friendly & courteous. Looks like it's run by a family. Everything reasonably priced, including refreshments.

Good for under 5's good prices for tokens but this place is extremely run down. The rides look like they have never been cleaned and are not well maintained. I'm actually surprised it passes Heath and safety regulations! Train ride doesn't work either. The pictures...More

The staff are chatty and friendly but that is where the positives stop. Sadly the park is very tatty and lacking excitement. There were a few small friendly dogs running around loose which wasn't a problem for us but some children could be frightened. One...More
