Its a very good family day out and if you book online its fairly cost efficient to entertain the whole family BUT....they are all about the money these days and not the family experience. You have to pay to walk around the pleasure beach and you can not take in your own food and drink so once in there you are hostage to the prices and products they sell, which for a family WILL be VERY costly.
Apart from that it is a good day out and if you have never been it is well worth the visit.

This place was ok when you paid for the rides. Gone downhill since the wristbands came in. You even have to pay £5 just to walk around it. Queuing forever to get on rides, lucky if you get on all of them in one day. Will most deffinatly never go in the Pleasure Beach again.

Great rides. The only problem is the entrance fee. You pay a reduced fee if your not going on the rides. I think it's a lot fairer to have free eentry and then people can pay for as many or little rides as possible. I went with my son and his two children, so that I could look after the little one, who doesn't like rides, while my son took his older child on rides.

Rides are fine, used to be much better before the entry fee for all came in, when the grandkids went on the rides and the older adults watched. Now whether you go on the rides or not everyone has to pay. Need to stay all day if you want it to be cost effective.
Really think it's petty not being able to take food and drink in and they then have the monopoly if you need to buy a hot dog or a coffee on the park so look out as your pocket will take a big hit.
Think they need to take a leaf out of Pleasure Island at Cleethorpes as cheaper entry, food and drink welcomed and in fact tables and seats provided.
