    Terror Towers - utter crap!

    by suzwa Written Jul 10, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Terror Towers is on the South Bay, among all the amusement arcades. It's a kind of haunted house that you walk round, but it's really, really bad - not remotely scary, and really quick to go round so although it's not really expensive, it certainly isn't value for money. Maybe if you are around 10 you might like it, but otherwise, give it a wide berth.

    Unique Suggestions: Just don't go!

    Fun Alternatives: Because it takes so little time and is completely fear-free, you'd be better off spending the money on something else. If it's rainy and you are looking for something to do, go into one of the amusement arcades instead - there's one next door - convert a pound into 2p pieces and go on the 'tuppenny nudgers'... it's cheap and more fun than you might expect!

    Aviod the south beach!

    by smose Written Jun 28, 2006

    The south beach is the busiest and hardest to park - it is where all the amusments and shops are - its heaving!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Unique Suggestions: You would be better to head to the north beach which is slightly quieter then head over to foreshore for a stroll in the evening and a flutter in the amusement.

    Parking is not great for either beach - there is no parking during high season on the foreshore road, south beach only a small amount at the peir and parking for north beach is along the marine drive but gets very busy

    Fun Alternatives: If you want a quieter beach altogether head south towards cayton bay or hunmanby gap - although here you will have a trek down the cliff so if you have limited mobility stick to the north bay.

    Go to the south beach later in the evening for a stroll along the foreshore and a flutter in the arcades.
