A £5m investment has taken place at Southport’s Pleasureland in the UK and saw the debut of a new attraction as the venue opened for Easter.


Steampunk Bay is a new "land" at the park to add to the recent introduction of the Viking Adventure golf, an 18-hole mini-golf that was opened in 2022.

Steampunk is a combination of Victoriana and science fiction, says the operato,r and it "creates an immersive realm that will bring a whole new feel to the park." The land celebrates steam power.

The park opened for the season last week with several new rides including The Eniigma, a circular spinning ride, plus a new ghost train, flying chairs, The Ultra and Paradox.
