A bit of an institution, the fun fair has been here forever and remains very popular. A nice bit of family fun to be had after a day off n the beach. The only shame is they don't... read more

£1 per ride on most rides on a Friday night So taking the family doesn't cost an arm and a leg It's not exactly Disney land but it's fine to spend an hour Just remember to book nice weather It can be quite cold in porthcawl

This place is certainly worth a visit, decent prizes for the games, good variety of rides for all ages and the usual arcades etc. Very much like the traveling fairs you get but a bit bigger and a lot cheaper, normally about £1 per ride. Don't expect Alton Towers!

It's a fairground that caters to every pocket. You spend as little or as much as you like. There are rides for all ages, including a few that are quite scary. If you want Alton towers cleanliness and attractions then head there and pay that sort of money. This is a seaside fairground that offers a great time if you're... More

Beach was good as always on a warm sunny day, the rides have deals on on Wednesdays and friday, sometimes they offer half price rides or even £1 rides for the entire day, which is amazing if your on a budget but want your children or even yourself to go on a ride!

Went after 5pm on a Wednesday for a discount, glad it was because I'd be hard pressed to pay full price for what it is. Though kids enjoyed it so that's what counts i guess!

Don't go here.people. This place is full of drunken chavs who all seem to have Staffie dogs or pitbull breads to try and act hard and intimidating. The rides were very expensive and very old too. As we walked in late afternoon there was a man urinating up against the wall near the entrance. There is a very rough pub... More
