The iconic Grand Pier at Weston-super-Mare, UK, will re-open this summer after being devastated by a fire in 2008, and a Pan Amusements 12-gun Pirate Gallery will be part of the many attractions.

The 12-gun gallery replaces two Pan eight-gun galleries which had been in operation and providing family fun for visitors for over 20 years.

"We are delighted to be part of this exciting new development and it is great that the operators have come back to us for one of their attractions," said Pan managing director Paul Whittaker. "It shows that our galleries are built to last and that the type of fun they provide never dates. It is a really excellent all round attraction."

Pier owner Kerry Michael added: "The Grand Pier will re-open this summer as a year round, all-weather indoor theme park. There will be 18 brand new rides plus some of the old favourites, including the Pan Gallery."
