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.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

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 stalls.
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.
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."

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.
