There's a lot to keep visitors of all ages happy on the Palace Pier, from roller coasters to thrilling arcade classics and games of chance.
The Turbo Coaster, with its steep drop and loop-the-loop, is the pier's star attraction. The Wild River is a superb log flume ride, and it's impossible not to laugh out loud riding the Waltzers. For a gentler experience, have fun trampolining or riding the Carousel and Cup 'N' Saucer.
This indoor space houses quick-fire shooting games, as well as the best Guitar Hero experience you can play. Arm yourself with a bag of coppers and try your luck on the 2p pushers, and win prizes that will keep you smiling long after your visit is over.
