This visit was my second time at the pier, once with family and once with friends. It's good fun with many choices of rides, games, photo opportunities and concessions. They offer passes for the rides for more opportunities to ride. It's so unique that you can hear and see the waves crashing while enjoying the Ferris wheel! I prefer and... More

I took my 13 year old and I could not have been any more impressed! I thought the all-day pass was very reasonable at $27 per person. When we got inside the park I was even more impressed!! The lines were short and quick. We waited no longer than 5 minutes each ride and most of the time there was... More

Not very many rides for the cost. You get the best deal if you buy the day pass and ride all the rides several times. I paid per ride which was a mistake, but I figured there wouldn't be many rides I would want to ride on. Most the rides are for young children.

The trip to pleasure pier was with my kids. We were there for about 5 hours. A lot of rides, drinks, food, including turkey legs! A lot of restrooms and resting areas. Beautiful views. They had an awesome band playing. I couldn't believe it was $20 for an all day pass, included entry and all of the rides.

Read the reviews here before and did not plan to visit this place, but had to go due to my little boy. The overall expensive was bad. Our 2 years old was told to have free rides but was required to have a band when he wanted to play the game just outside the door even he was tall enough.... More

Good spot for families with small children. Set on the pier that once housed The Flagship Hotel. I'd recommend the family pass. A family of 4 will cost about $100 but all the rides are included. Most rides aimed at tweens and under. There is a Bubba Gump restaurant on site with other fair type food on the pier. Chic... More

Smaller than a state fair, about the size of a carnival. Cool sights, beautiful lights, fun times. Very glad we made the time to visit on our last night in Galveston. Prices aren't bad. $10pp admission. $6pp extreme rides and cheaper from there. Didn't eat anything there so can't comment on that.

This is a nice place to spend some time with your family. Great views, interesting rides (Don't miss out on the Roller Coaster), a nice selection of Restaurants (Bubba Gump's), etc. Parking available, but pay parking. My only complaint is that all must "pay" to go on the Pier. Already shelling out for parking, rides. and food. This seems a... More

We live close to Galveston and visit often but had never ventured onto Pleasure Pier. Grands loved it! What variety squeezed into a little space. I have to say it's my favorite Landry's facility!

When you pay your ten dollars to just walk on you then get a better idea of what the bright lights have to offer. There are a few kids rides and a few older group of rides. If you sit and let the kids ride the same five rides over an over ....you may get your money's worth($28.00). If you... More
