History

The original building was built before the 1930’s and started life as the Beach Concert Hall. Pictured in its heyday with ice cream parlour to the front and public toilet block to the left of that. The putting green on the right of the picture is still active however shortened to provide space for parking. It has been noted that the Great Scottish comedian ‘Lex’ McLean has also appeared in the Beach Concert Hall, as well as many other great performers of years gone by.

After the closure of the concert hall the building was used by a dairy firm, and then taken over by the Castleblair Clothing firm. In the 1970’s it was turned into the Pleasureland amusement centre by J. Sharp & Son’s.

MSL Leisure Ltd. then bought the building in 1989 and run the amusement centre till 2004. In the autumn of 2004 Pleasureland closed its doors for good.

In the spring of 2005 the old Beach Concert Hall got a new lease of life and reopened as Action Zone, the children’s interactive adventure.

Opening our doors is not just as simple as opening our doors. We have been allowed to open by the Scottish Government, but for how long? While Scotland stays in a tiered system there will always be the possibility of the level being raised and being shutdown again. With this stop-start system still in place we have taken the difficult decision to remain closed until we are safely out of the restrictions completely. We cannot commit to opening while this is still the situation. It is too great a strain both financially and mentally. Please remember we are a family business too and have managed to open our other entertainment venues while following the imposed restrictions. We also do not want to commit to staff, offering positions that may be stopped within a month just because we have been raised back to level 2. We hope you will all understand this has not been easy for us and we have not come to this decision lightly.
