5 Things To Do this Weekend (12th Dec)

Winter Grand Opening At Pleasureland

To bring some much-needed festive cheer Pleasureland will be creating a magical experience for you all to enjoy. It’s not the North Pole…but their little elves are hard at work making plans to turn the park into a fabulous, festive, fun-filled family day out for you.

If you visited them over the summer you will know that we have been open with full Coronavirus safety measures in place for many months, so they know what works and how to help make sure everyone understands the part they have to play in keeping each other safe.

They've planted Christmas trees and they, along with their existing established trees will be decorated with beautiful lights. All of the rides will be shimmering too as they launch their winter opening starting on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December. The park will then be open daily from Saturday 19th December until January 3rd 2021 (with the exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day). Gates will open at 11am, with all the rides and fun starting from 12 o’clock midday. For further info and tickets head to
