Children love this

Always a big hit with the kids. They love all the rides and it's not too exspensive either. I think it could do with modernising, it's very old and dated.

It has been open for many years nothing has changed however its good for small children who cant go to big theme parks like pleasure wood hills or pleasure beach. It is ok for an hour or so but maybe changing it a little would make it more pleasureable

Lots of rides for young children up to about age 10. You buy tokens from the kiosk and hand them over on each ride. Its mostly enclosed. It is in the open so go on a dry day.

Amazing to take my own children to joyland this half term when it hasn't changed at all since I was young. £20 kept 2 children aged 7 and 3 entertained for over an hour.... at £1 per ride far cheaper than any fairground. Its cramped and noisy, but a great afternoon adventure on the seafront. Would suggest only suitable for... More

Very nice little park where young children can enjoy the rides without them looking to big and daunting for them. Lovely in any weather as it is fairly sheltered

Often visit here being local my daughter enjoys the rides, perfect for small children anyone over perhaps 8 might find the rides a little dull as it is intended for smaller children. The park is very small so dont expect tit to be 'a day out' an hour here will see you having been on everything.
