THE entry price at Weston’s new pirate golf attraction has caused a stir on Streetlife this week.
Pirate Adventureland, on the seafront, features an 18-hole mini golf course and a high ropes challenge. Admission is £5-7.50 for mini golf and £6-8 for the high ropes.
Tickets for a family of four are also available for £20 and £25 for the respective attractions.
Ally I said: “I do think it’s a bit expensive.
“I think there will be quite a lot of disappointed youngsters.”

Jill B agreed: “We certainly couldn’t afford to go at those prices. I should think there will be a lot of upset children being told no in the summer.”
Sarah T was also disappointed by the cost, saying: “It looks really good fun, but it is overpriced. We will visit occasionally, but not regularly. £20 for an hour’s entertainment is simply too much to pay.

“It’s such a shame. I had high hopes it would be a local attraction we could use and support regularly.”
Some Streetlifers disagreed and thought Pirate Adventureland would give Weston a much-needed boost.
Rock Star said: “I think it will be a great new attraction for Weston. It might seem a bit expensive, but I’m sure it will do well in the holiday months.”
Sarah W admitted she ‘was not sure’ about the price, but said: “The kids will love it and I think if there’s a good summer the owners will rake it in.”
