The Pleasure Beach with its mixture of high-octane rides and traditional attractions sits at the top of Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile dominating the seafront skyline with its famous Skydrop.

Spread over nine acres, the Pleasure Beach offers huge family fun, full-throttle white knuckle rides to exhilarate and thrill, water attractions to catch your breath and fun rides to keep the children happy for hours.

Our roller coaster has been the star attraction since 1932 and is still a crowd puller today.

More than 1.1 million visitors enjoyed the Pleasure Beach experience in 2013, confirming our place in the top 10 UK free entry amusement parks.

And even more attractions, rides and innovations are on their way.

I've always had a soft spot for this park and its a decent amount of fun. They have weathered the storm of multi million pound parks like Alton Towers/Thorpe Park et al. and have survived unlike so many other seaside funfairs. They seem to keep the rides reasonably fresh and they seem to change each time I go. Many are... More

Wow. This place is just as good as when I went in 2012! The rides are extremely fun and it's been one of the first times I've actually laughed on a ride! Obviously the Star attraction is Rollercoaster, the freaking Rollercoaster! Which is oodles of fun! As well as Mulan and twister, quick warning prepare to get squished if you... More

The wristbands are £20 and the 2 of the main rides were closed that day! Very few rides altogether and everything is extremely old & dated. The size of the pleasure beach has halved since i was a child as its tiny now and way more expensive :(

Having never been to the Pleasure Beach, we were so thrilled to find it! We have two 1 year olds and a 3 year old, they all had a choice of rides which was just lovely for their age group. We would probably buy a wristband next time, but not realising it was there we didn't plan ahead! Great afternoon... More
