“The place is run down, but it had a lot of potential.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

I went to check this place out. There are some interesting rides although they look like they could do with some serious refurbishment. It was fairly quiet when I went and I got to see the amount of work that needs to be done to get this place to decent state.
There is no entrance fee and you only go to the ticket office to pay for the rides. You should avoid it over the Easter and December holidays, as the number of people are just too much.
I would give this one a miss on my Durban itenary.

“Run down, but has potential”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

The place is run down and seems to have few visitors. It does have great potential however if refurbished and better marketed.

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

This place is one of the most horrible places I've been to. It smells of urine all over, constantly filled of litter and is ALWAYS crowded. The beach(North Beach) is just the same story_ STAY FAR AWAY!!!
