Ride the snails, they’re just a hoot. The rest of the park is fun as well, it’s a lovely spot, very traditional.

Old fashioned family fun. Lovely little childrens fun park. Most suitable for families with children aged 4 to 8, or for returning adults reliving fun days from their own childhood. Iconic rides from the 1950s as well as more recent updates. This little fun park...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.
