Went after 5pm on a Wednesday for a discount, glad it was because I'd be hard pressed to pay full price for what it is. Though kids enjoyed it so that's what counts i guess!

Don't go here.people. This place is full of drunken chavs who all seem to have Staffie dogs or pitbull breads to try and act hard and intimidating. The rides were very expensive and very old too. As we walked in late afternoon there was a man urinating up against the wall near the entrance. There is a very rough pub... More

Fun half day out if you have kids or teenagers. We usually go on half price days as the rides are overpriced. Not much to say about the staff mainly rude and ignorant and thats if they can understand what your saying. They need more toilets as you have to walk from one end of the fair to the other... More

Definitely in need of refurbishment but keeps the children happy and there are plenty of rides and amusements and if the weather is good there are ponies and donkeys on the beach which is very clean and when the tide is out plenty of room for everyone.

Haven't been here for years and it still looks the same. Rides are expensive but kids love it. Loud music, noisy rides. And ideal play for kids. Not posh at all.

Beautiful, clean golden sand beach. Dogs not allowed between May and September. The amusement park may look a little dated but the ride selection is great and at £1 a ride every Wednesday and Friday evening, it's definitely worth the trip. Plenty of amusement arcades with slot machines and the fruit machines to keep you busy after a visit to... More

This is everything a fairground should be...noisy, loud music, gaudy and a little but crazy. It seems stuck in a timewarp but the kids don't care! It is expensive, but then most fairs are these days. It's fine as a one off but I wouldn't visit regularly!
