Gunwharf Quays Debuts 'Summer Boardwalk' for 2022
This summer, Gunwharf Quays introduces its ‘all-American’ attraction, the ‘Summer Boardwalk’, opening on Friday 22nd July in the Plaza.
The ‘Summer Boardwalk’ will be reminiscent of the boardwalk amusement parks which sprung up across the coasts of the USA at the turn of the century. Guests will step back in time as they step onto the fully decked boardwalk, complete with festoon lights, an illuminated entrance arch and ragtime music.
The unique immersive experience will feature the 35-metre tall ‘Wonder Wheel’ at the heart of the attraction, with over 20,000 lights illuminating it at night to create a spectacular backdrop.
Riders will be able to take in stunning views of Portsmouth’s harbour, and an aerial view of the boardwalk. In addition to the ‘Wonder Wheel’, amusements will include a traditional carousel, a children’s balloon ride and an iconic ‘New York, New York’ funhouse.
For guests needing some refreshments after enjoying the amusements, ‘Coney Island Hot Dog Co’ will be serving up hot dogs galore – from cheese dogs to chilli dogs. Those with a sweet tooth will be able to indulge at a pick and mix sweets stall and a traditional churro’s stand. ‘JOE’s’ boardwalk bar will quench the thirst of visitors with a selection of frozen drinks on offer including frozé, margaritas and pina coladas alongside mocktails, beers and soft drinks.
Gunwharf Quays ‘Summer Boardwalk’ will open from 11am - 8pm on Mondays - Saturdays and 11am-5pm on Sundays between 22nd July and 4th September 2022.
