Very out dated & run down. Friendly staff.

The Pleasure Park seemed like it was stuck in the 1940's. All rides very run down and out dated... read more

We took 4 of my 5 grandchildren aged 18months to 9 yrs. The place is very old, dirty, broken down and I was frightened for the safety of the children. Pleasant staff but after spending £10 on tokens we left before spending them all because...More

The Pleasure Park seemed like it was stuck in the 1940's. All rides very run down and out dated. Even a lick of paint would make this place look a lot better. The slides are the best thing but the kids got stuck every time...More

Lots of olden day childhood attractions plus tramplolines. Staff very helpful, friendly & courteous. Looks like it's run by a family. Everything reasonably priced, including refreshments. Granddaughter (and I) loved the music playing (sounded like ballads from 30's & 40's sung by Bing Crisby). Next...More

My 4 year old spent an enjoyable 15 minutes on the trampolines. The Helter skelter slide was dangerous. The long slide was not slippy enough to slide. Several rides were closed. The 2 person swing was fun but I was worried about safety. Have Southampton...More

Good for under 5's good prices for tokens but this place is extremely run down. The rides look like they have never been cleaned and are not well maintained. I'm actually surprised it passes Heath and safety regulations! Train ride doesn't work either. The pictures...More

The staff are chatty and friendly but that is where the positives stop. Sadly the park is very tatty and lacking excitement. There were a few small friendly dogs running around loose which wasn't a problem for us but some children could be frightened. One...More

Fantastic place to spend an hour or two with small children. My 7 year old daughter loved it. The 75p per token/ride reflects the aged appearance of the park. My daughter had lots of fun on the Helter Skelter and trampolines. As previous posts suggest,...More

There's nothing here that wouldn't have been available in the 50's, and for all I know that's when these rides were installed. Yes, it's run down, but kids don't care! Ride (and snack) prices are from the eighties reflecting this, but the trade is (I...More
