Guide to the rides of Codonas amusement park Aberdeen at the beach boulevard including smugglers cove, ten pin bowling, the big wheel, galleon, haunted house, dodgems and crazy golf
A day out at Aberdeen Beach is a real treat for all the family. Part of the fun at the boulevard is a visit to
the Codonas amusement park and rides and the Miami Beach and Sunset Boulevard Complexes. There is something for everyone to enjoy.
Some of the amusements are in buildings within the Sunset Boulevard complex, so no need to worry about the weather. Though we do get some glorious sunny days here, so you can enjoy the outside rides and attractions.
I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
The Grampian Eye Big Wheel, nicknamed the Aberdeen Eye, is the top attraction of Codonas Aberdeen. It has 20 Gondolas, each of which
has room for 4 people. The wheel is 100 feet high and gives you some stunning views out to the North Sea and around the city and bay.
There are also three different sized roller coasters ranging from a very small and gentle roller coaster which
is suitable for smaller children through to a stomach churning looping star one. For those who love to get wet there
is a white water log flume ride.
Codonas Amusement Park
The haunted house at Codonas amusement park will get your heart racing as the ghosts and ghoullies jump out! If that doesn't get you going
then try the waltzers that spin you round and round at a terrifying speed. Younger children who can't go on the waltzer can
enjoy a range of gentle and fun rides that are scattered around the park.
Scattered around the complex are ice cream and candy floss stalls, knock the coconut stalls, face painters and sweet
Inside the Sunset Boulevard, which is open daily from 1000 hours, they have the latest simulator machines,
video arcade machine and slot machines. Up in the Cuba Bar there are 10 full sized American pool tables.
There are also the dodgems and a 26 lane ten-pin bowling area.
Smugglers Coveis a fun and safe adventure area for younger children where they burn off their energy by swinging and jumping
about in the padded obstacle area. A tiny tot's band can be purchased which gives the wee ones 2 hours of play and on the smaller rides such as the safari train, the giant
slide, mini racing bikes, the bouncy chute and the apple coaster. This area was formerly known as Ramboland.

VIP passes can be purchased which gives unlimited access to all the rides and the dodgems and a main meal at the buffet

Dodgem the Dog is the mascot of the Aberdeen amusement park. He joins children in the rides and walks through the park having fun with the kids.
Dodgem the Dog was the winning creation of Mintlaw Primary School pupil Amy Cardno whose competition entry saw
Dodgem being creating. Her design and great name for Dodgem the Dog also won her classmates a VIP day out at Codonas.
