I've been going on the snails since I was smaller than my kids. A great place to wander around - a good place to have a ride or two - enjoy for an hour or stay a few. I also love the little arcade at the back - generous token prises and friendly staff. Try the snails and the tubs... More

This is a popular local attraction for holiday makers and locals residents. My lad will be 11 soon and Joyland won't hold his attention for very long, That said we have had a brilliant time over the past 6 years. It has both calm and exciting rides for younger kids. It has a perfect roller coaster that will give them... More

I remembered this place from holidays in the 60s and 70s. A ride on the snails brought back lots of happy childhood memories!

It has been open for many years nothing has changed however its good for small children who cant go to big theme parks like pleasure wood hills or pleasure beach. It is ok for an hour or so but maybe changing it a little would make it more pleasureable

Lots of rides for young children up to about age 10. You buy tokens from the kiosk and hand them over on each ride. Its mostly enclosed. It is in the open so go on a dry day.
