I visited the pleasure beach a few months ago and the rides were brilliant, I like the dark rides especially and the pepsi max. I was however dissapointed that you now have to pay £5 to enter the place when it was once free. And for while I thought it was unfair to pay this simply to walk around the park, not even if you want to ride. However I have come to see some sense in this. No one including myself likes to be riped off or pay for things that were once free. But the plus point or a good side effect is it deters the anti-social behavior yob element from comming in and causing trouble. The pleasure beach is a place to enjoy where families can come to have fun and there is nothing worse than a bunch of yobs shouting and using filthy foul language pushing people aside or being drunk. That spoils it for everyone it spoils the magic for your children. Its so sad people want to spoil things. It also prevents pick pockets and other people up to no good entering by having this system its much easier to ban known trouble makers from the park. And of course its nice to know your children are safe in the park too.
Yobs who have nothing better to do with their time are not going to pay £5 just for the fun of pushing people aside being rowdy and using foul languge in the park and spoiling everyones enjoyment. I know its not fair that WE have to pay to enter the park now. But sadly with the state of rising crime and anti-social behavior and yob culture in Britain, We hard working, tax paying, law abiding citizens have to pay as usual.
Of course until something is done to deal with such terrible foul behavior in this country, then the costs as usual are payed by us.
I do remember the days say 10 years ago when you could just walk in in from the promanade for free, no turn-stiles gates etc, but sadly things are different today.
If there are other reasons for charging for entry, which there might be, then keeping trouble makers out is a good side effect of this fee.
On a lighter note the park really still is a magical place to visit for young and old in search of adventure, fun or simply good time, and we saw no anti-social behavior everyone was happy, enjoying the sunshine.
