Good fairground however it needs more rides especially for teenagers around 14-17 years old. New ride extreme orbiter is brilliant.

It was a good day out, my little girl really enjoyed it. The only issue is that it is always really busy.... I know this is not a bad thing but when you have a small child it can be quite overwhelming for them.

It is a good family fun day with everything that kids could ask for, good fun and worth a visit on any trip to Portrush.

Ok
I’m an oldie now aged 55 , though I still love riding the Octopus and the massive swing wheel that goes way kip high until you are upside down .

Our son just adores the dodgems.

There are all types of attractions such as ghost train, shove halfpenny (well, 2p and 10p coins now).

There is a traditional organ merry go round with wooden hobby horses and chairs on board.

You cannot come to Portrush and not visit Barry’s amusements. Good value for money

Barrys was great fun as always on the bank holiday weekend, really good for children between the ages of maybe 5-12, maybe they could do with a couple more rides for older children, but what is there is good fun! Thanks!

Everyone visits Barry’s amusements when in Portrush. It’s just the done thing.

However, a lot of the machines such as the 2p falls are quite often out of service, malfunctioning or have coins stuck in them.

A little facelift or general tidy up wouldn’t go amiss.
