A really fun day out, the kids loved Joyland. The prices are outstandingly cheap. You need to purchase tokens. Your not queuing for long either.

It’s free to walk around - it’s just on the sea front near the pier - they are mostly toddler/small rides that you get tokens for & go with them. Our 1 year old went on a few rides with us.
