Barry Island Pleasure Park

Amusement Park

Barry Island Pleasure Park is situated in the Vale of Glamorgan about 10 miles south of the capital city Cardiff, South Wales, UK.

Thousands of children and adults still enjoy a day out at Barry Island. The Pleasure park is surrounded by many other interesting and exciting shops, bars and restaurants.

In addition to the pleasure park Barry Island also boasts natural scenic beauty and a sandy beach with promenade.

Barry Island once upon-a-time used to play host to a Butlins Resort of which you can still see the remains today. The Pleasure Park was also famous for its Scenic Railway which dominated half of the site back in the early 1900s, this was damaged years ago but some of the materials were used to create the Log Flume, which still remains today as one of the parks most popular attractions.

The pleasure park has over 50 rides and attractions, for all ages including the Log Flume, Viper Rollercoaster, Sea Ray Pirate Ship, Galloping Horses and many others. Entrance to the park is free, and ride tickets are available from ticket booths at the park.

Amusement arcades are located within the pleasure park, and also on the surrounding sea front area, providing games of skill, chance and all sorts of video games.

New Arrivals to Barry Island Pleasure Park are the Evolution, which is an exhilarating upside-down, round round and spinning on your side ride. Great for anyone who's brave enough, without taking a brown paper bag!!

Also recently added to our selection of exciting rides is the Twister. Slightly more suitable for anyone who's just training their nerves to withstand the Superstar. But more about that in a moment!

Some of you may have seen the Superstar, this enthralling ride is our adrenalin showpiece of the park! You'll love it! It's fast, furious and great fun... some people can see their house from the top... upside-down!
