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.

Always love going to Pleasure Beach. So many rides, something for everyone whether you're a thrill seeker or prefer something a bit more gentle. There are places to eat, drink and sit down for a rest after all the rides and queueing! Great for kids, families, teens and those of us who have decided they don't fancy growing up just... More

It reminds me completely of my childhood. Taken my kids a number of times whilst holidaying in Norfolk. You've got an option of buying wristbands or buying tokens. We've done both, we normally buy a wristband for our teenage daughter and her friend so they can just go off and do the rides, and we will get tokens for our... More

Okay, so its a funfair and who doesnt like a funfair? Children hear the music, see the lights and bingo they're happy. In truth its a tired venue, old fashioned without the charm. Its there, its a great part of the Yarmouth experience and unlikely to change. Enjoy it for what it is.
