Small fairground on mouth of the Tyne. Great for little kids. Some staff looked as though they did'nt want to be there. The Ghost Train is really old as is a lot of the other rides. £18 fee for wrist band is not worth it

Typical amusement park with rides & indoor slot machines. Looking a bit dated but still okay. A little pricey for some rides, but no more than expected.

Very good, plenty of rides for both young and old. Will keep you entertained for hours. Some rides seem a bit pricey for what they are but you can get a bit of a discount if you buy multiple tokens.

This is quite a good little static fairground. It has a variety of rides for all ages but it's not cheap. It's £10 for 20 tokens, saving you £2.50, but can be bought single and most of the small children's rides are 3 tokens. There is lots of slot machines including 2p ones for the children. There's plenty places to... More

This fair with rides occupies part of the beach, and with some rides quite tall, it isn't hard to get here Accessing either of the toilets, external to the park is an adventure in itself, and some rise don;t look the most robust..bring a cushion.. otherwise a welcome time in tyneside
