Pleasure Pier

Pleasure Pier is located in Galveston, Texas. It’s a beautiful pier with rides and shops. Lot’s of families enjoy the shark roller coaster, which usually has long waiting lines. There’s a Ferris wheel, bumper cars, and a log flume. Lot’s of people also enjoy the astrosphere, which happens to be one of my favorites. Well that one and the roller coaster of course. What about these swings? It is 230 feet high and it swings out over the water. What a thrill ride this is. There’s also an swinging pendulum ride that again swings out over the water. Fun! Fun! This pier is beautiful at night with all of its rides lit up of course it’s on the water. We all love that.

If you check with other people you’ll find that one downfall is it costs just to get on the boardwalk. Yes, it’s $10 just to go and walk around on Pleasure Pier. A lot of people are disappointed in this pier because they charge just to get on the pier. What  bummer! Why would you do that!? Some of us just want to bring our children or see the pier. Some of us turn around and walk right back out because we don’t want to pay this price. Think about that. If it’s you and your significant other and 2 kids, you’ll be paying about $40 just to get on the pier. Ridiculous right? Because then you need to pay another $20 per kid, and then $40 per adult. So lets add that up real quick like for 2 adults and 2 kids. Just to get on the boardwalk its $40. Then let’s add on the $20 a piece for each kid, so now you’re looking at $80. Now let’s add $40 a piece for the adults, which would be another $80 for  a grand total of $160 just to go on this boardwalk for a family of 4. Disappointing but its beautiful and maybe even worth it.

Hi my name is Kirk, and I'm excited about this blog. There's a few things that I enjoy talking about but mostly I enjoy sharing my experiences on boardwalks and sharing my knowledge on whether I thought it was worth the time or money and also I'm hoping to also show you all as readers where you need to go. Some of these boardwalks are a must see if you happen to be in the area.
