The place is filthy- rubbish everywhere including broken glass. Full of drunks at all hours of the day, rides which look like they've been assembled in the 1950's and not updated. Food stalls which look dirty served by the most miserable staff. Always overcrowded, have to battle your way through clouds of cigarette smoke to get anywhere. I can't find a single good thing to say about this place, although if you manage to get through it in one piece the rest of Porthcawl is actually quite nice. Have to pay 10p to use a dirty toilet. Avoid at all costs!

Dirty, horrible place. Ride operators rip off children and adults. Toilets hard to find. Few food options. Just awful. Honestly.

Typical seaside resort amusement park. Good fun for the kids with some good rides and pleasant staff to be fair. Other staff were typical fairground staff with no personal standards or customer service skills whatsoever.

Some terrible looking stalls (I wouldn't buy food in any of them) and the arcades (which we normally enjoy) were shockingly poor. Really tired and in need of decoration, and loads of machines not working. I used to work in a place that had amusement machines so I know how much money they can make with a bit of effort. They could really improve the general appearance of the whole park.

We happened to go on a Friday evening when all rides were half price after 5pm so it was £1 per person per ride, so not too bad for the kids to have a few rides each.

If you want food though, go off the site and round the corner where there are a couple of fish and chip shops of really good quality as the ones on site look dreadful.

Better than expected after readin the reviews on here. Yes the rides are a bit old and you feel like you're taking you life in your hands on a couple of them, but what do you expect at a British seaside fairground. Our whole family found some rides and stalls they liked. If you expect Disneyworld you'll b disappointed but if you grew up with fairground down the Rec then you'll enjoy it.
