It was a great experience. Not too crowded and not too long of a wait for the rides. Employees were friendly and energetic.

What an amazing view! I walked to the location on the beach during the day from the Commodore. Then, at night time drove by to see it lite up. What a fun place to have right on the beach. This is a must see.

Kids had fun. The adults enjoyed just walking around. If you are a Landry Select member, there is a special line to buy your tickets.

This is really a mini-amusement park with a few rides and games to play. It costs $10 to just walk the pier and games are $3 per person. I would not add this to a list of must-do things if you are visiting the area. Needless to say, they trap you at the entrance to take photographs.

I've been to the Chicago Pier, the Santa Monica Pier and Fishermans Wharf to name a few. I do not remember having to pay to walk out on the pier to see what was there. Too much confusion at the front - they need better signs and people to answer questions - like when you walk into Disneyworld and they... More

I wasn't sure if this would work out well for my younger kids. But we also have two teenage kids. Everyone had a blast my two-year-old got in free! We will definitely be going back!

I did not actually ride the rides while here. This was my second visit here. The first in June two years ago. The lights were on and it seems like it ran continuously. I guess because it was summer. This time i came for our spring break (weekdays in April) and it was completely shut down. Apparently in off season... More

Very expensive for what you are getting and the atmosphere was not what we expected. Lot of people smoking and using profanity, unsupervised groups of kids making it unsafe made this something we won't do again. Very disappointing.

We took preschoolers to Pleasure Pier. There are walk in tickets if you aren't going to ride the rides. You can pay per ride also. No entertainment shows to attend.

Went to this amusement park for the first and last time. The employees are very rude which makes your whole experience go down hill from this point. After the amount of money you pay to enter and buy family play passes. You would not think for one minute this would be the worst decision you could ever make bringing your... More
