Yes, all rides are included – you can see a full list of our rides here. Some rides may have restrictions in terms of height and other criteria. We have other activities within the park which are not included in the rider wristband such as theatre performances, games, stalls, arcades etc. Most of these activities and extras can be paid for by contactless card in the park.
If a ride is due to be unavailable for any reason then we will endeavour to update the ride list shown on this website on that particular day so that you can see which rides are going to be available for you to enjoy during your visit.
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We offer a group discount of 1 free ticket for every 20 tickets of the same type purchased (e.g. if you book 20 rider tickets you would pay for 20 online, and we would update your booking so that you receive 21 when you check in at the gate on the day of your visit).
To claim this offer, please book your tickets online and then email us with your booking reference number and we will add the extra ticket for you to collect at the gate on the day of your visit.

These are promoted on our website in advance each year so keep your eyes on our socials and website for the 2023 dates.

Generally speaking the rain does not prevent us from opening the park and so we tend to be open even on days when the sun isn’t shining. Your tickets are only valid for the day you originally booked for, so if you choose not to come this is up to you but you will not be eligible for a refund. In extreme adverse weather conditions we may have to take the decision not to open the park. If you have tickets booked for one of these day you will receive an email from us as soon as the decision not to open the park is taken. The email will provide all the details you need to help you rebook for another day.
Yes you can.
We have two large car parks around Pleasureland. If you are visiting the park, the closest car park to the gate is located on Esplanade opposite Splash World. Our other car park is on Marine Drive. All our car park are £8.00 all day (from 10am till 7pm) or £7.00 if booked online with your park tickets. You can view the location of our car parks here.
We have a limited number of designated disabled parking spaces. If you need assistance with parking our car park attendants will guide you as where best to park for your needs. We do have two large car parks around Pleasureland. If you are visiting the park, the closest car park to the gate is located on Esplanade opposite Splash World. All our car park are £8.00 all day (from 10am till 7pm) or £7.00 if booked online with your park tickets. You can view the location of our car parks here.
Around the park you will find plenty of seating areas away from the main rides and surrounded by landscaped gardens to provide some quiet space if this is required. For children with additional sensory needs we have children’s ear defenders available to purchase from the Ticket Office in the centre of the park.
We offer a ‘Disabled guest with carer’ wristband package. This effectively enables the carer to accompany the guest on the rides at no extra charge. We do require you to bring specific documentation to show at the gate to ensure eligibility for this ticket. Without the specific documentation we will not be able to issue this wristband package. You can find full information about this on the Accessibility and Support page on our website – click here.
As we are a relatively small park with a good number of rides spread throughout the space we don’t tend to experience queues that larger theme parks have, hence we don’t have a fast pass scheme. As you can appreciate though, some rides are more popular than others which can sometimes lead to a slightly longer wait time depending on the ride. We recommend that guests who wish to avoid queues head to the more popular rides in the park when the park is quieter – this tends to be either first thing when gates open or towards the very end of the day.
We understand fully that queuing can be challenging for some guests so we are more than happy for one member of your party to join the short queue and then the rest of you can rejoin the queue when your turn comes if that will help you. The ride operators are used to this for guests who experience challenges with queueing. You will find benches adjacent to some of the more popular rides which will enable you to sit in comfort while you wait.
Yes they are.
Sorry no we don’t have wheelchairs or mobility scooters available to borrow. There are local mobility shops who may offer this service if you Google ‘wheelchair hire Southport’ it will bring up some options for you.
Sorry, no we don’t have lockers/pram storage facilities on site.
We don’t have the facility to offer children’s parties at this time but check back again soon as we are hoping to introduce these in the 2023 season.
Yes! We welcome well behaved dogs. They must be kept on a lead at all times. And please ensure you clean up after your dog.
Yes – there’s plenty of space within the park to sit and eat a picnic. We just ask that you use the bins provided or take your rubbish home with you. Please note we do not permit guests to bring alcohol onto the premises.
There is a full list of rides on our website – click here. This page shows the minimum height requirement so you can see which rides your child will be able to go on alone and which they would need to be accompanied on (in which case you would need a rider wristband to do so). Please note that we use height as a guide only. All riders must be able to hold themselves in an upright position and hold on to go on any of the rides as this is a health and safety requirement. There are clear exclusions on some rides, listed on the ride safety sign at the ride. The height restriction on rides is provided as a guide, as there may be occasions where a rider meets the height requirement, but the ride is still unsuitable for them. Your safety is our number one priority. If our ride operators determine that a ride is not suitable for a particular guest, this decision is being made for your own safety.
We want to ensure that all guests have a positive experience during their visit with us, so if you have any issues, please ensure these are brought to the attention of a member of the management team on the day of your visit before you leave the park. We are not able to resolve issues regarding your booking or your visit retrospectively if you have not brought it to the attention of a member of the management team at the time of your visit.
