Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier

For decades, the historic Pleasure Pier served as a tourism catalyst for Galveston`s Seawall Boulevard and the Texas Gulf Coast. More than 40 years after the original Pleasure Pier was destroyed by Hurricane Carla, Landry`s has transformed the Pleasure Pier into a world-class amusement park for all ages. Originally built in the late 1940s as a recreational facility for the military, the Pier was turned over to the city after World War II and named Pleasure Pier. The Pleasure Pier operated as an iconic family destination until 1961, when Hurricane Carla hit Texas. In 1965, the Flagship Hotel, then the only hotel in the nation built entirely over the water, opened on the site, but was severely damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008. In 2012, the Pleasure Pier reopened as a nostalgically themed amusement park representing a return to glory for the Pier. The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier rivals similar parks like Chicago`s Navy Pier, the Santa Monica Pier and Coney Island`s Luna Park. In 2013 Amusement Today`s Golden Ticket Awards recognized the Pleasure Pier as one of the world`s top-five seaside parks. The approximately 1,130-foot pier extends over the Gulf of Mexico at 25th Street and Seawall Boulevard and is home to Texas` first Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant, a number of shops, entertaining midway games and 16 rides, including gentle rides for young visitors and exhilarating coasters for thrill seekers.
