Photo TR: Clacton Pier


Recommended Posts

Nothing really exciting happens along the coast of Suffolk/Essex (if you exclude Southend) So when I discovered there was a new Credit opening up just 20 miles away from me I thought it was worth a shot!

 

I have been to Clacton Pier pretty much every year for the last 5/6 years, however I have always felt the place looked quite rundown, not a lot to do etc.....well its definitely worth a visit now! Especially if you have kids, plenty for them to do and now a grand total of 3 credits!!!!

 

Stella's Revenge is a Standard Pinfari Z40 model which has been brought over from Barry Island (its had a good cleanup!), the name is a Homage to the old Steel Stella that opened in the 1930's but unfortunately got burnt down in the 70's, the ride sits on almost the same spot as the original, its quite nice that Clacton Pier have realised their history and done this

Wild Mouse Coaster is...................not a Wild Mouse, it is a Wacky Worm themed to Speedy Gonzales, this has been here a few years now however, but a great Kiddie Credit nonetheless!

 

Gold Mine is the 2nd Credit to open this year, it is not located on the Pier, but at the top of the Hill near the entrance to the Pier in an Amusement "Park" called Pavilion Fun Park, it is a basic Figure of 8 Loop, but again, brilliant for Kids! (BTW - I failed to get any pictures of this...Sorry Larry!)

 

There is a host of Classic Flat rides also here, Waltzer, Twister...the usual Motley Crew....

 

Onto the Pictures, They are not amazing as I was not specifically doing a TR, however I thought it would be nice to show the place to everyone and to get it added to the Park Index!
