Theme Park
“Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park is set within 50 acres of enclosed coastal parkland there are rides and attractions to suit all ages! If you’re a thrill seeker you’ll love Wipeout with its top speed of 50 mph, or hold on as you climb to 60ft high on Enigma. Brace yourself for a soaking on Timber Falls or face your fears in Hobs Pit. Families with younger children won’t miss out on any of the fun. Grab a friend and jump in the dinghy to take on the Wave Breaker, race friends or family on the go-karts, spin around on the Kite Flyer and go looking for treasure on the Pirate Ship. Smaller children will like the Flying Elephants, driving school and Big Train. There are also animal shows.”
