Adrenaline Junkies Love Brean

Brean Rides

If your family are adrenaline junkies and the tots just like plenty of fairground fun then I highly recommend www.breanthemepark.co.uk.  This wasn’t the first time I’d taken my (now) ten year old son, and it won’t be the last.

Whatever age the children are you’ll find something here for everyone with over 40 attractions and rides (that’s what they advertise, and not something I counted!), but what I can tell you is there are plenty.  £25 for a Mega Wristband seems rather on the expensive side (it’s up there with Chessington and Alton Towers) but it’s not bad value for all day entertainment, especially when in the height of summer it’s open from 11am – 9pm.  And on the plus side, the queues are nothing like these massive attractions and so you can go on your favourite rides time and time again.

Brean Theme Park

‘Disco Fever’ was a firm favourite for my son.  I’m not sure if it was the spinning and bouncing up and down, or the constantly playing of ‘jump around’ (by The House of Pain) that meant we had to go on this ride no less than three times.  For me, ‘Wipe Out’ was the most fun and adrenaline pumping, spinning me into the air until I was upside down.  The high winds on the day meant that X-treme wasn’t open (for safety reasons).  I understand why. On a past visit I’ve been on this ride and it’s awesome.  I wouldn’t want to guess how high it is, but it spins you 360 degrees whilst you’re ridiculously high in the air.  The views across Brean before the ride starts are stunning, and if you’ve got the stomach for it, it’s not to be missed, but you’ve been warned!

Younger children can ride all day with a So0ty Wristband costing £15 but you may find it more cost effective to purchase tokens and pay per ride.  They also offer evening only wristbands and the occasional firework display, and having been before, I’ve got to say – I rate it!

With long opening hours, it’s great to be able to take a break for lunch without feeling rushed.  There are cafes on site and a few pubs/cafes within a few minutes walk. You may even want to venture to the beach which is just a short stroll away.
