RIDES & ATTRACTIONS
Brighton Pier has a mixture of traditional, old school rides like The Helter Skelter and Ghost Train and the newest thrill rides in the UK. Our Helter Skelter has been on Brighton Pier since 1977, replacing its predecessor which was destroyed in 1972.
We have all the fairground family favourites including The Gallopers, Dodgems and Waltzers which have all featured on many television programmes and photo shoots, including Eastenders and Coronation Street.
The most traditional of all seaside fun fair rides is Brighton Pier's Gallopers; a marvellous Carousel with magnificent hand painted and individually named horses to be enjoyed by the whole family.
Don't forget to buckle up and put your "L" plates on as driving The Dodgems will certainly test your driving skills. In 1928 the first dodgems were introduced to Britain by the Messrs Lusse brothers and within four years Brighton Pier had their very own dodgems and big wheel. "One Direction" from X Factor have recently had a photo shoot on The Brighton Pier Dodgems.
Our famous "Horror Hotel" ghost train is renowned as one of the scariest places in Brighton after being the subject of many a scary story and the scene of a television murder. In 2010 the Midsomer Murders episode "The Sword of Guillaume" was filmed on Brighton Pier with The Horror Hotel setting the scene for a grisly discovery. The Horror Hotel was also used as a scene in Peter James’ International Best Selling Murder Mystery. Peter James features images of Brighton Pier on a number of his books' front covers including "Dead Man’s Grip", "Dead Man’s Footsteps" and "Not Dead Enough" making reference to Brighton Pier throughout. Peter James’ love for Brighton Pier is evident as he held his latest book launch on Brighton Pier.Thrill Rides Kids Rides Height Restrictions
