Went here as a child and now having taken my children it hasn't changed much, there's rides for every age. Half price nights are the best. They put on an amazing fireworks display. Lots of arcades and amusements for the children too.

If you are in Porthcawl with young family then it’s worth a visit. Yes it’s not the way it was 30 years ago but then what is? Good selection of rides. Good day out for the kids.
