The Pleasure Pier is okay, but really is overpriced for the small number of rides available. Also, there's very few rides for small children.

We visited with kids ages 11, 13 & 14. We purchased the all day pass for about $27 each. If you aren't going to ride anything, you still pay $10 to get in. It's not a big amusement park, just about 16 rides on a...More

The only thing I didn't like is you have to pay admission just to walk the pier. Even if you didn't want to ride the rides, you had to pay. Nice rides, very clean.

Plan on staying about two hours, and kids and adults alike will have plenty of time to ride all the rides, maybe even a couple of times, get a treat, and make the day pass worth purchasing. If you time it right and visit immediately...More

It's a great place to take younger kids but my teenagers were not that impressed. But we are talking about teenagers who love Six Flags more than anything. I love the concept. I have awesome pics of the beach and ocean. There's one ride that...More

Pricey but had a good time. Beer was expensive. Good for family fun. My two year old enjoyed also as long as he rode with an adult. Would go again.

We had the good fortune of visiting on a beautiful, early June evening, during the week when it was not too crowded. The rides are updated and seemed quite clean for an amusement park. There was a good mix of little kid rides and thrill...More

Gotta see it. There is not much to dislike. Traffic can be an issue on side roads, but never not found a parking spot.

Is the beach rather close? Do you have to leave the pier in order to have access to the beach. I've been to the beach just never the pier.

Yes! The beach is right beside the pier.
We have a 2 year old. Do you have to pay the 27 dollars for 2 year olds? How many rides could they legitimately ride. The last time we took her to a place like this, she rode one ride and fell asleep for three hours, so trying to figure out if it is worth taking her. We have teens too, so a big spread in ages.

Children 2 and under are free unless they want to ride a ride. Rides start at $4/ride. They have a nice double decker carousel. Also 48' and shorter prices we cheaper since they can't ride all the rides.

The Hilton Hotels offer a slight discount on the PP. Also they do offer a military discount of 10% on admission and extra savings on shopping!!
