Pleasure Pier was basically closed in February. Bubba Gump and a children's gift shop was open. We did not eat there.

Don't waste your time or money on this unless you have kids to entertain. It's just a tourist trap....

Before I begin, let me start by saying that at 39.00 per person, most families are going to be hard pressed to afford this place. They have about 5 rides, and how many times can you ride the same one without getting bored. Take your...More

It is lit up at night. Bubba Gump shrimp located here but you have to pay to walk or ride on the pier past bubba Gump. Clean, looks interesting but did not pay to go further

I do agree with the other reviews that it’s on the expensive side, and you have to pay for entry even if you don’t visit all the rides. However, you can pay a pass to do everything (except the games) and it works out better...More

Was disappointed that you had to pay to even walk around. Felt like you should only pay for the rides you go on. Was really pretty at night!
