Great fun for all the family, Great views of the sea. Just don't bring your own food in and have a banquet as you'll get caught just like the Indian people did.

The Central Pier was busy when I visited today. The Central pier has a real family theme. 1980s, 1990s music playing. Classic rides and shops selling crafts made from sea shells. Lovely bags and purses , and interesting sea side attractions. We sat on a bench to eat our Ice cream we enjoyer the pier

Still free to go on. There are free toilets in the amusement arcade at the entrance. Loads of rides on the pier and bars and shows. Plus the usual stalls and gypsy tents.

DO NOT SPEND MONEY HERE AND DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN IT IS NOT CHILD FRIENDLY, INTIMIDATING, AGRESSIVE, TOOK MATTERS SERIOUSLY IN A MANNER THAT COULD MAKE YOU SICK. Went in with my girlfriend and I wanted to give the horse race skeeball thing a try which looked relatively old and broken. So I paid 50p to play and it... More

We were only visiting Blackpool for half a day so didn't want to invest in wrist bands for the fair. Had a great hour or so on the rides on the pier and a drink in the bar. Everyone had a fab time

We approached Central Pier and decided to have a look. Wow it was busy, noisy and full of families having fun. There is a family bar at the end of the pier, it was bouncing. There was a live band playing and there wasn't a spare seat in the house. And the bar itself was very busy. There were a... More

Nice place to hangout and walk but can get very crowded. Loads of games and rides esp for children to enjoy. I wanted to ride the Big Wheel but felt it wasn't safe as it wasn't covered properly and it was too windy and cold so wasn't worth taking the risk. The coffee was nice at the cafe.
