Took the family there during the summer of 2016. The place isn't the worst, was fairly clean and well kept and seems to be well managed. Some of the indoor areas were dated and tatty. Most of the prices were reasonable for the rides. Most seemed to be in good condition. Staff were mostly young people and not overly friendly... More

It's a very compact amusement centre so keep hold of little ones hands as they would easily get lost or bumped into. Expensive and I hate the idea of having to buy tokens... You buy too many tokens or too little and then you have to go back to que and buy more. The music is far too loud and... More

Good rides for all the family. Could easily spend a few hours here but make sure you have plenty of money. Rides well supervised and strict on height limits which is good

Barrys is predictable in a good way. You know what to expect, not much changes but it is still a good enjoyable place to take the family for a few hours. It can be as pricey as you make it, we tend to go for the offers on token (£20 for 50) ...that way we wont be spending a huge... More

I used to come here when I was a kid but this place hasn't changed. Needs investment severely. Much needed TLC required.

Good variety of rides for the kids and a nice atmosphere. I am not a local so not into the nostalgia bit but still impressed! I like the sound of happy kids!!!
