Century-old Welsh seaside theme park set to close its doors

A theme park that first opened to the public 103 years ago will close following the sale of Coney Beach Amusement Park to the Welsh government.






A theme park that first opened to the public 103 years ago will close following the sale of Coney Beach Amusement Park to the Welsh government.

The park, which sits on the Porthcawl waterfront, has been purchased as part of plans to regenerate the Welsh seaside town, with the purchase also including an adjoining section of land known locally as ‘the monster park’.

“Generations of our family have lived and worked alongside each other here at Coney Beach for over 100 years,” said Coney Beach’s Pat Evans.

“We will be forever proud of our showman heritage and the memories that we have created for all our customers who have visited us and shared in our love of the ‘fun of the fair’ and the legacy that Coney Beach leaves.”

The theme park is expected to remain in operation for three years ahead of any developments.
