Bursting with activities, Ocean Beach Pleasure Park is a large amusement park situated on the coast in South Shields.

With free admission, over 40 rides and attractions, amusement arcades, mini golf, 10 pin bowling and Quasar Laser there really is something for everyone.

There are lots of things for the little ones to enjoy. Take a ride on the Pony Express, get dizzy in the teacups or shoot some spooks in the Ghost Hunt.ย  With game stalls such as Hook a Duck you can leave with some great prizes. The older and more daring visitors can enjoy the usual stomach churners such as the Waltzer and Twist and those looking for the ultimate thrill can try “Scream” – the only ride of its kind in the UK. Get comfortable while you are lifted 37m high, held for 15 seconds and then dropped 0-68mph in 2.3 seconds with G Force of 5.5!

For those who enjoy surfing or snowboarding, try out the Urban Wave a new all year round sports activity that can simulate popular boarding such as surfing, wake-boarding, body-boarding and snow-boarding without getting wet!

This is the only surf simulator of its type in the UK which uses a full rotating platform of soft brushes which gives the rider the ability to carve simple or difficult tricks!ย  You can surf standing up, on your knees or lying down.
