I'm not a big fan of amusement park rides, but this was everything you could imagine a beach boardwalk would be. Tame and adventure rides all overlooking the Galveston beach & gulf! From the carousel to Ferris wheel to roller coaster- there's an experience for...More

Visited with my two daughters one night after dinner. Prices are reasonable ($28/each for all you can ride) and it was very clean. One of the rides was closed but we loved them--riding while out on the ocean is a super cool experience-especially the swings!

Pleasure Pier is a must do for the family. Lots of rides, good food, great staff. Buy the all day adventure pass and get access to the pier and ride as many rides as you want as many times as you want. Eat at Bubba...More

Was planning to send kids 17, 16, 14, 13, 12 to ride rides as we sat on the beach and/or had a beer at Beerfoot. No such luck. They wouldn't allow them in without a parent. Sad face. The kids had fun on the rides....More

Pleasure Pier is unlike any boardwalk or pier I have ever been on. You have to pay to gain admittance unless the only thing you're interested in is Bubba Gump's. After you pay for admittance you will then need to buy tickets if you want...More

A friend and I decided to come to Galveston as a 2 day Staycation. Pleasure Pier was so fun. There is so much to do and enjoy. I like that the area is family friendly. I definitely recommend this place as a vacation or staycation.

The Pleasure Pier is okay, but really is overpriced for the small number of rides available. Also, there's very few rides for small children.

We visited with kids ages 11, 13 & 14. We purchased the all day pass for about $27 each. If you aren't going to ride anything, you still pay $10 to get in. It's not a big amusement park, just about 16 rides on a...More

Is the beach rather close? Do you have to leave the pier in order to have access to the beach. I've been to the beach just never the pier.

Yes! The beach is right beside the pier.
We have a 2 year old. Do you have to pay the 27 dollars for 2 year olds? How many rides could they legitimately ride. The last time we took her to a place like this, she rode one ride and fell asleep for three hours, so trying to figure out if it is worth taking her. We have teens too, so a big spread in ages.

Children 2 and under are free unless they want to ride a ride. Rides start at $4/ride. They have a nice double decker carousel. Also 48' and shorter prices we cheaper since they can't ride all the rides.

The Hilton Hotels offer a slight discount on the PP. Also they do offer a military discount of 10% on admission and extra savings on shopping!!
