I'm not surprised Openwide are having to entice customers with half price offers so soon after opening, the new "attraction" is a complete rip off - £35 for adults and £27 for children, thats before any optional upgrades, Thats £124 for a family of 4.
.
The Council has seriously mismanaged the awarding of contracts to Openwide and S&D Leisure who both rip off visitors and jeopardise Bournemouths long term reputation as a family friendly resort. Its difficult to see how ripping off visitors links in with Bournemouth Councils aspirations to create a world class resort..
.
I also think that Councils should be forced to publish details of all commercial leases and rental agreements for Council owned property.

**** that is a lot of money, and if they decide to leave the pier via the zip wire at 14 quid each for the kids and 18 quid each for the adults that = £188 before food and parking. Dear oh dear.

Probably too busy surfing the reef or ice skating in Kings Park ... or may be taking in a wedding at the beach wedding hut, if they haven't been using the new dive trail at Boscombe beach .... where it's impossible to buy a surf pod because they are all sold out.

Still, there is the delights of the new Nautilus development to be enjoyed first.




ps makes you wonder how poor old dim has time to post on here given all that the council has provifded.

So the pier approach is being relandscaped and the amusements removed (except the Carousel). So what happens, the pier gets them??

'Decent' visitors are put off by the dreadful cafes and food at the Pier Approach and in the Lower Gardens (with a couple of exceptions). Youths walk staffs & 'pitbull' dogs, often off leads - and the occasional others letting dogs run around on busy beaches. BBQs and drunk/cannabis smoking parties disturb the peace, and worse still footballs being kicked around and sometimes skimming by.

Why are there no patrols to keep things under control? Especially with 50,000 visitors on the beach apparently on Sunday (yes, leaving their litter behind in the beach). And worst of all the back of the beach huts are used as toilets and stink.

We have no world class art gallery, no good art house cinema, and concert halls with great concerts but no air conditioning (never going again, even the performers were fanning themselves).

Bournemouth really needs to think where to position itself. 50,000 people bringing their own picnics and buying a cornetto will hardly enrich the council coffers. This beautiful town needs a proper plan and should consult residents. Reading these forums there is clearly a lot of discontent
