A great short trip to distract you for a while is great! Very expensive though, but it's a must visit if your in portrush.

While they do have a rollercoaster and a couple of other rides for the bigger kids or grown-ups, this small amusement park is mostly for young children up to 9 or 10 years. Always fun to visit, especially if you have memories of it as a child. My kids enjoyed it. A little pricey for tokens- and wish the tokens were for everything in the building.

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.

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

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.
