Situated on the South Shields coastline, Ocean Beach Pleasure Park is a great experience for a fun-filled family day out in the North East. With over 40 rides, attractions, arcades and more, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

As well as the usual stomach churners such as the Waltzer and Twist, the Park has a ride for those with a daring streak - 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!

Of course there is lots for the younger visitors to enjoy. Take a ride on the Pony Express, get dizzy in the teacups or shoot some spooks in the Ghost Hunt. With game stalls such as Hook a Duck and Pull a String you can leave with some great prizes.

For those not keen on rides, there is still plenty to do. We offer large amusement arcades packed with some great machines. Visit The Zone the newly refurbished arcade which is open all year round. Come and try the brand new Laser Maze can you get through the maze without breaking the lasers? Come along with friends and have a game of Pool, Air Hockey or Ping Pong. There is so much to do in The Zone.

For that ultimate indoor fun head to Quasar it's serious fun with a laser gun. Set inside a 1700 sqft arena and kitted out with a vest and laser gun, the objective is simple stalk, shoot and rack up the points. Ideal for birthday parties for the young and old, school outings, corporate team building and so much more.

If you want to take the day a little bit easier, there are options for those that like to relax. Why not take a stroll along the sea front or hire a pedalo and relax while taking a trip around the Boating Lake.

After all the fun you are bound to have worked up an appetite so where better to eat than one of the Parks food outlets. With everything on offer from light bites to meals, hot and cold snacks/drinks and favourites such as candy floss, sugar dummies and hot fresh donuts there is something to suit everyone's taste.

Ocean Beach Pleasure Park - a fun filled family day out!
