Well we took ours there and it was hard to draw them away. Small compact and has things to capture the interest of any age , even those in pushchairs. Its a token run attraction so money doesn't change hands

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.
