Since I went in September, the Pleasure Pier was on off season hours. Walk on Friday was fun (and free) however, they stopped letting people in at 9:00 and most of the rides had closed down. Way to expensive to go to if you don't...More

This place reminded me of old school carnivals when I was young...only better. Well worth the price of admission. Just be sure to check the hours during off peak times of the year.

Several rides were shut down so it was really a place for kids that are really small. It was not worth the cost. There are some days that are "free Fridays" just to hang out

Kids had fun on the rides. Bubba Gumps was good but wish there was more food options on the pier. The night view of the water from the Ferris wheel was beautiful!

We just strolled along the pier after eating across the street. They have lots of ride choices and the lighting at night is awesome. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. If you got children of any age, they would love this place.

We didn't ride anything, just wanted to experience the Pier. Enjoyed night time views over looking the water. Good experience. Not to crowded, but was super hot!!! LOL. Fun for both kids and adults.

I was excited to see the Pleasure Pier but once I got there it was just a highly overpriced carnival. We saw the prices compared to what was there and decided we would find something else to spend our money on. I can’t imagine how...More

The price for admission is rather steep especially if you want to just ride a ride or two. But watching was fun
