Fun for the young ones and us old ones. There is plenty to do including amusements and rides as well as food. It's a good day out and prices are not too bad. Typical seaside attractions all in one place.

Had a fun couple of hours here. Fairground rides are reasonably priced. Only negative needs more toilet facilities had to sneak in to a pub.

Open over bank hol weekend, pop up food/drink and a very talented young man singing. Nice to see people on the pier again, still undergoing renovations but looks really nice what has been done up to now.

It's a shame that a couple of staff can really ruin an attraction, but alas that's what has happened here. You don't expect amazing customer service, granted, but you expect at least an acknowledgement of your presence when waiting to ride, or at the very least some manners when being told you can't ride a ride for no discernable reason....

For the experience you have to pay 20p for the privilege. Even though there was an Attendant on site, the floor was wet and dirty. It was a noce sunny day but this realy turned you off.

I like this place we tend to come here whenever were in pompey. I don't mind the fact it's loud as hell or the fact I never seem to win a teddy, what I do mind I seeing a guy walk behind the chippy counter and help himself to a sausage from the hot counter using his fingers without washing...

The fairground was fun - great for kids and adults. The childrens roller coaster, train ride and elephant ride were a particular hit for our 4 year old. The Pirate and Princess softplay was also clean and enjoyable. A slightly strange design to the boat (with lots of dark tubes going round in circles and leading to dead ends!) but... More
