Ocean Beach operator Michael Sheeran said: “Easter is starting early this year and we are getting ready to welcome families over the holidays, to enjoy their days out with us.

“Visiting the park is a long-standing tradition at Easter, and Good Friday is still one of the best days for atmosphere.

“We are very keen to promote a family day out so our customers can relax and have fun.

“This year we have six fantastic rides new to the Park, some just for the Easter holidays and some as a permanent fixture.  

“We like to listen to feedback from our customers and have brought in Thrill Rides Superbowl, Freak Out and Tagada, Family Rides Crazy Frog and Wave Swinger as well as Flying Planes for the younger visitors.”

The site also has a new-look Laserforce arena, replacing Quasar, with new equipment. The laser game allows up to 20 people to battle it out with the chance to win some free prizes.

Admission to the park is free with offers on ride tickets and wristbands.

People can also snap up £25 worth of tickets for £15.
