    Pier is a bit of a rip off
    You have to pay £1 every time you go on the pier, so if you go on it for an hour then leave and you want to go back, say 30 mins later its another pound. The two cafes at the end are nice with friendly and helpful staff. There is another cafe/restaurant at the end of the pier, but we did not use that ones. It looked nice though, called Tiffanys. My wife and two grown up children did the mirror maze on the second floor, opinion was, dont waste your money, its £2 each and only good for a couple of mins or so. Most arcaide games are £1 - £2 a go, there is also a small go kart track on the pier on the second floor.

    Interesting
    Enjoyed our 2 days spent on the pier. As it is a long pier, it was good that there was plenty seating on either side of the covered walkway. As it was the hottest week of the year (so far) when we went, the side of the pier in the shade was the busiest and most pleasant. Definitely worth the £1 entry fee to help with the upkeep of the historic pier

    Pretty average/poor
    Pretty average and not great value for money. We got the £15 wrist bands for our two children aged 10 and 12. They went on everything they could and weren’t overly impressed. Everything was either a bit broken or not working at all. The helter skelter didn’t really slide. The laser maze wasn’t working properly. Free fall was broken. And a lot of the other things were a bit young for them. Bumper cars were ok but they didn’t have them all on so they took up a big portion of the room on the floor. The arcade was much like any other arcade but the prizes in the 2p penny falls were rubbish. Not even kids would want them. Also the prizes for tickets were absolutely crap. We also paid for family mini golf which we did enjoy. Had lunch in the boardwalk cafe. Over priced and not that nice. Fish was ok but chips were hard and not fresh. Kids had chicken burgers that were dry. They over charged us and took ages to sort it out. In comparison to other similar attractions I’ve been to for a similar price there wasn’t as much to offer. All in all I wouldn’t bother coming back.

    Great fun!
    Great place. Ample parking spaces/loxations. I parked on the beach front. (£10 for all day or £6 for a few hours) Lots of ships, cafes on the beach front. £1 to enter the Grand pier. I prebooked wristbands for rides and brought money to use inside the pier - for the arcade rides etc. The wristbands cover some rides but not all. The pier is great, buzzing atmosphere and a good choice of rides. We are in Tiffany’s restaurant, which is located to the back and separate of the pier once you are inside the pier. Food in Tiffany’s was 10/10. You can easily spend all day here, combined with the beach entertainment.

    Massive lack of potential
    Like many others I was extremely upset when the old 30’s pavilion burnt down in July 2008 and watched every step of the rebuild with detail and excitement. It was lovely when it first reopened although I have never thought many of the rides were exiting enough for thrill seeking adults ( maybe only the now broken Robocoaster) and the ghost train is fairly good. I have never once saw all the outlets on the neck of the pier open which I always thought was a pity as there was even a bar originally. Then there was supposed to be a viewing tower at the end of the pier but sadly that never got beyond a dangerous (and unmarked) set of piles sticking out of the seabed. The surf ride along the roof never happened nor did the high speed ride that promised to whisk its riders at high speed along the neck of the pier. O and the amazing multi changing lights all over the pier never properly worked. I was so excited there was to be a bar as the old pavilion only had one for months before the fire although it always stayed open throughout the summer until 10pm. Sadly I have hardly ever had a drink on the pier as I am not a day time drinker and although I have had some lovely meals in the Tiffany room what a terrible waste it’s also not open on evenings as, BOTH the bar and the Tiffany room have their own entrances so the pavilion needn’t stay open. I believe the train isn’t running due to loose boards and lack of investment in the Joyces that support them. And on my last visit I was very saddened to see benches starting to rot and weeds and moss growing under them. Piers are such a British institution and a very special and unique part of our seaside heritage but they must be well maintained as without it they soon deteriorate and become unsafe, if not ran by a trust they must optimise every possible resource they can to make money and to invest as much as possible back into the structure. Please don’t let’s lose yet another one of our beloved piers to neglect.

    Amazing Value for Money
    Amazing Value for Money away day for all the family. There are so many activities for all age groups and the panoramic view of the horizon is unique. Well worth the £1 entry fee per person as all the activities and restaurants were competitively priced.

    Spur of the moment trip to Weston
    When I left it was a nice enough day, but started to rain as I got to Weston. The pier seemed a good place to go as it’s partly covered. It has a long walk up to the end. There’s a lot of slot machines and two penny shoves, kept me busy for a while. First floor has a restaurant and a shop. Bumper car ride too. I had a nice coffee in the cafe which looks out to the sea. Only drawback is parking, can turn out expensive.

    Entertainment for All Ages: The arcades provided enjoyable entertainment suitable for all age groups. Affordable Pricing: The arcade games were reasonably priced. Maintenance Concerns: While the arcades were enjoyable, they could benefit from better maintenance. Early Closure: Unfortunately, the arcades closed early, around 7 PM, catching us off guard and limiting our playtime. Gift Shop Prizes: The prizes in the gift shop could use improvement, but overall, there was a good variety of games to play. I hope this captures your experience more accurately!

No visit to Weston or in fact any British seaside resort is complete without a spin on the slot machines. We paid a pound to enter the pier and venture out to the Grand Pavilion at the end.
The pavilion has, in fact, been destroyed by fire on two occasions, in 1930 and 2008. This latest version was opened in October 2010 having cost £39m to rebuild.

The Grand Pier which features indoor rides and arcade machines year round as well as the ubiquitous candy floss stall, ice cream kiosk and a tearoom also has a land train during peak holiday season. The attraction for us today, along with being inside out of the less than hot weather, is a trip down memory lane on the old two pence machines. It’s hard to believe that all these years on these machines are still popular given the movement of arcade machines towards ever more modern equipment in line with games played at home on X-boxes etc.

Hubby, who has far more experience than me on these machines, having been brought up within easy travelling distance of Southend-on-Sea, hit the jackpot and loads of paper tickets start flowing from the machine he is playing. Whilst he gathers up the reams of tickets I try and find an attendant to discover what we actually do with these tickets. I must admit staff are a little scarcer but eventually I am directed upstairs to the gift/prize shop. I can’t believe like two excited school kids we are rushing upstairs to spend our bounty! 

Despite, however, having 600+ tickets we soon realise our only option is to exchange them for sweets. Unfortunately all those on offer are very much geared to youngsters - there’s no signs of any jelly beans, jelly babies or decent chocolate. But laden with several white mice, maom packets and a couple of large sherbet lollies we still leave the arcade happy and feeling as if we have won something.

Great place to go with the Family, plenty of things for young and old. Nice long covered walkway to the Amusements. Today we tried out the Soft play...very entertaining...but felt it was a lot of Soft play in a small area, unfortunately some parents don't look after their children whilst they are on there. Not sure if the Costa cafe attached to the play area is part of the Pier...but its not very well managed...waited 20 minutes after ordering my drinks...and I wasn't alone others had waited sometime.

We went to the grand pier yesterday.We had such a fabulous time.This place is a lot better than most seaside arcades.The pier is lovely,you get beautiful views of the beach and if you are walking back you get a lovely view of the beachfront.However the slight disadvantage of this pier is that the sea is so far out you can’t walk over it on the pier.Great walk no matter whether it’s blazing sunshine or bucketing it down with rain.There is a sheltered walkway too.Also there are various places on the pier that sell food,ice creams,bits and bobs etc.However what makes this pier stand out to any other is the arcade.The arcade is fantastic.I did go-karting,mini golf and vr.The go letting was fantastic,they’ve got all new karts and the staff are friendly and make sure it’s all as safe as possible.You got a reasonable time round the track as well.Mini golf was also fun,it was so fun to play and each hole was really imaginatively and originally designed.Also when one of the balls got stuck,we were given another one immediately after asking.Vr was also fun too yet very intense.The toilets are clean and they have a really nice shop.Would highly recommend everything,but be careful round the crystal maze!

Having to pay for the privilege of spending your money in the machines at the end of the pier. Not a good look, and pretty penny-pinching.

I object to paying £1 to enter the pier. No doubt those like me would spend far more on the amusements anyway so why the deterrent and unfriendly barrier?
There are plenty of alternatives.

It was £1 per person to get in but well worth it. We didn't have any money on us, as is the case with lots of people these days, but there are machines just before you go in where you can get £20 worth of £1 coins, which, if you're going in the arcades you will need. This was really handy, as we had no idea where the nearest ATM was.

It's still early in the season so nothing was open as we walked up the pier,, even the little train wasn't working. However, once we got to the main building at the end of the pier everything was open. Lots and lots of arcade machines, games, soft play upstairs and other scaled down fairground rides for the kids.

Our grandchildren loved it. If you're prepared to spend a bit of money on a rainy day, it's an ideal place to take them. In fact, we only spent the £20 we changed at the gate, as there are machines that take 10ps and 2ps as well, so the money lasted a long time.

The only disappointing thing for the girls was that the machines these days don't pay out money. They pay out in tickets which you then exchange for tatty rubbishy gifts in the shop. Unfortunately, we weren't there long enough to get lots of tickets and the girls only had the choice of sweets, which an expensive way of buying them. For example it was 500 tickets for a plastic skittles set which you could have got in a shop for £1. Never mind, the girls enjoyed themselves which was the object of the exercise.

There are several eating places on the pier as well.

Would recommend a visit if you go to Weston Super Mare.

A fun place to go visit and lots to do on the pier. You have an option to buy a wristband but we chose just to pay as we went for some of the games. You could easily be there for a few hours and there is places to eat and drink.
