Bit disappointed that you have to pay for the rides once you have payed in. However we still had an enjoyable day looking at the old stuff. We would definitely recommend this place.

Hi Nicola, there are a few rides in the museum, but they are not always all operational. It's a museum first and foremost with the bonus of potentially being able to ride some of the rides.

The number 120 Scarborough to Bridlington stops at the drive to the Flower of May caravan site where the attraction is situated. Allow plenty of time when leaving to get down the drive to the main road for the bus.
