Galveston Pleasure Pier Photo TR!


Recommended Posts

So with it being Thanksgiving and all I decided to take a trip to Galveston to visit the Pleasure Pier. With this being my first trip I was super excited. All in all I enjoyed the park. The views from all the rides were amazing. The Star Flyer views were to die for. You can seriously see the curve of the earth. It's amazing. Iron Fishy... Errr... Iron Shark was pretty good. Just rough as hell. The lapbar only was awesome though. Everything else was amazing as well. The entire pier has an AMAZING lighting package and looks so good once the sun goes down. Oh and they were playing Lady Gaga in the park so that is an automatic win. Anywho on with the photos... And beware there is a LOT of them. (Hope they are all sized right) Happy Thanksgiving TPR. You guys are awesome!!

Sweet photos. I've always liked boardwalk amusement parks, and this one looks really nice. Interesting about Iron Shark being rough. Is it the transitions? I watched some videos and it looks like the cars really slam into the brake run after an awkward transition out of the twisted loop.

They seriously need to do something to attract more locals to the pier. I went in the summer and it was not busy, and judging from your photos, they can't be making much money. But I'm surprised you didn't like Iron Shark. I actually didn't care for the lap bar restrains because I whacked the people sitting next to me many times (the turns on that ride are very quick) but it's still fun euro-fighter!
