Barry Island Pleasure Park

Barry Island Pleasure Park is a amusement park situated on the coast at Barry Island in the Vale of Glamorgan, about 10 miles south west of the capital city Cardiff, Wales.

The park opened annually at weekends from Easter onwards and daily during the school summer holidays, until the first weekend in September.

As of March 2015, Barry Island Pleasure Park opened permanently to the public on 3 April 2015.

Barry Island contains a wide assortment of shops, bars and restaurants. The Pleasure Park was once famous for its Scenic Railway which dominated half of the site in the mid-20th century, but was partially destroyed in a strong gale during 1973 before being dismantled.

Many of the scenic railway's beams were used in the building of the current Log Flume ride,[1] which was one of the park's most popular attractions.

The Pleasure Park had over thirty attractions and rides, however, in recent years, lack of investment in the park resulted in the majority of these being removed, notably the Viper rollercoaster and the Log Flume.

Park entrance was free of charge, and ride tickets were available from the park ticket boxes.
