Small rides , pretty cheap . Don’t buy £ 20 worth ... it’s too small you’ll struggle to burn them all. It’s ok ... kids liked it ... especially the snails . Would we do it again ... ? Yeah , probably

Snails! Been going on them since I was about 4. I'm now 39... The Tubs are OK but not really been on the other rides. Great for kids and a 6 year old can spend ages here, along with all your money.

Joyland is old and needs a lot of TLC but is still fun for kids. Our granddaughter enjoyed the rides, especially the snails, jetcars, spooky train ride and very small 'big wheel' . This amusement park is small and uses tokens instead of cash at...More

It’s free to walk around - it’s just on the sea front near the pier - they are mostly toddler/small rides that you get tokens for & go with them. Our 1 year old went on a few rides with us.
