“A good 90 minute distraction.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is a bit down at heel for me and the rides seem very short. I have been several times with our primary school and the kids love it! They could do with a bit of modernising and the rides could be longer especially off-peak.

“LOST ITS SPARKLE”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Barrys is not what it used to be..... no longer entertaining... to many slot machines..... untidy cafe and eating area.... litter on the floors..... only rides with any real class are the Cyclone and the Hobby Horses.
Barrys has lost it......I certainly wont be back

“Traditionally needs a visit….”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Been coming to barrys since I was born, 36 now and no trip to the north coast is complete without a visit, a splutter on the 10p machines and a rattle on the dodgems.

Carries an atmosphere missing in other amusements.

Recommended.

“Perfect Old-Fashioned Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We have a 4 and a 6 year old and this place is perfect for them.
It is inexpensive and the token system is a great idea.
Being able to buy photos on fridge magnets etc is a great idea also
