No chance of winning anything on the 2p machines. Tipping point with Ben Shepherd is how they should be set up.!!

Many places have piers with some amusements, this pier has nothing else to offer. You have to walk through the arcade to get to the end of the pier and what do you find? NOTHING but more amusements. Probably the worst pier I have ever...More

Arcade games a huge scam as toys have magnets in the 2p games holding them in. What happened to the old fashion win a toy with the kids. A business this size treating is customer like this is poor.

Stopped for a coffee and a stroll by the beach. Ventured onto the pier which brought back lots of memories of childhood. Delightful, traditional British pier complete with amusements. Fantastic!

Didn't have long in Paignton so visited the pier. Glad we did, very impressed with the presentation and cleanliness of the pier. It felt good taking a walk along the gangway and a beautiful day as well. Well done keep it up.

What a lovely pier, unspoilt and family friendly. You get a real old fashioned traditional feel as you walk down it with the traditional stalls and amusements, Yes there's also more up to date electronic games but they're not 'in your face' and blaring out....More

Great fun with the amusement arcades and rides at the end of the pier. Take plenty of money! Watch out the cash machines charge you for withdrawals, this is an ideal place to take all your saved up 2p coins for the slot machines.

This is our favourite amusements in Paignton. Most of the games are very fair, but they do require more skill than most arcades, rather than just luck. The cranes are 10p play, with good quality toys. They pick up and drop as soon as they...More
