Southport Pleasureland is getting ready to reopen! 

The popular attraction, on Marine Drive, can’t wait to put the smiles back onto families’ faces when it officially opens its doors again on Monday (12 April). 

Southport Pleasureland has been among businesses told to close by the government over the winter months, under the national Covid lockdown. 

Thanks for fast declining Covid rates across the UK and nearly 40million Covid vaccinations being given out (32.12 million first dose, 7.47 million second dose), outdoor attractions, all shops, outdoor hospitality, gyms, hairdressers and other businesses will be allowed to open their doors once again. 

Southport Pleasureland owner Norman Wallis said: “After a very long four months, we are finally back open!

The lawns have been mowed, the flowers have bloomed and the sun is shining – Pleasureland is ready for you. 

“We have been busy working behind the scenes to get the park reopening ready and it’s looking amazing. We’ve got some very exciting things to reveal over the next few weeks that we know you will all love.

“On days that the park is open, the gates will open at 11am with all the rides and fun available from opening.

“In line with government guidance we are restricting numbers to a maximum of six people per booking.

“Our first few weeks are booking up fast so if you’re planning on joining us over the next few months, please make sure you book now to avoid disappointment at:

“We would like to thank all our guests for the amazing support you’ve shown us over the last year. We appreciate every single kind word, message and comment.

“Tomorrow marks a new start for us all and we cannot wait to welcome you all back to the park from 11am.

“We will be open every day this week and then every weekend and Bank Holiday until the end of the school year when we’ll swap back to daily opening.

“See you all tomorrow!”

Southport Pleasureland is a family orientated theme park located providing great days out in the North West.

Since 2007 the theme park has been in the hands of Norman Wallis who has invested heavily to take it from a virtually derelict site to an extremely popular family fun day out.

The park has a wide variety of rides for all ages, a family arcade, indoor and outdoor performance areas, stalls plus many food and drink outlets.

One of the best traditional UK theme parks, Pleasureland also benefits from parking for caravans and RVs.

More recently Southport Pleasureland has added the Lakeside Miniature Railway to its list of attractions and work is currently being undertaken to improve the track and surrounding areas of the railway and to bring it back to its former glory and to provide even more fun on your family fun days out.

Advance tickets are required.
