Pleasure Pier

Pricey but fun. There are rides for both young children and adults. Plus you can eat at Bubby Gumps!

This is a well run amusement park. Not the same as a full sized park since it is confined to the pier. That said, the rides are fun and the staff is very friendly.

The entrance fee is too high for non-riders. Very disappointed for the price over 55 pay just to watch their friends or kids enjoy the rides. Even the ride fee is pricey. Not a lot or rides but some good thrillers. Wonderful view of the seawall area and the Gulf. Refreshments are too expensive.

Nice pier with nice rides but we spent 80 dollars to ride three rides in 45 min. They should have a pass for the kids rides. I would never go back at this price.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with how many rides really do fit on this pier. We came on a Sunday so there were virtually no lines. We rode almost every ride and had a great time! The Iron Shark was particularly thrilling, even if it was a very short ride time-wise. We ended up riding it several times... More

Loved the ferris wheel, action rides where you go upside down or almost upside down, bumper cars, and carousal. Bumper cars especially interesting because they have 2 areas. One especially for little kids (I estimate 3-7 year olds. Also, the carousal has 2 levels. I've never seen an "upstairs" on a carousal before. Lots of fun. Here on a Saturday... More

We visited the PP in April '17, this time of year it's only open on weekends. During the Summer it's open more often. It has amusement rides, carnival games and food/drink shops. You can buy passes to the pier or the full package of rides. They have rides for all ages and excitement levels.

We were here on a Saturday night recently. It's a little expensive; It was about $65 for our family of 4 (we didn't have to pay for our youngest as he is only 2). But the price was well worth it because there were no lines for anything. Our kids ran from ride to ride and never had to wait... More
