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.

This is great for a family fun filled day. It is a little expensive but if going from open to close it's well worth it. Generally even on busy day the question are not massive and u don't have to wait long for the rides.

We visited the park for the first time and WOW...It is amazing with so much to do and ride on. We spent nearly 4 hours in this park and it was very busy running about to ride as much as possible. We will return soon for another playing day.

I have been here twice before and I just returned to ride two new rollercoasters that I had not ridden before. I was able to park easily outside the park on the road although it cost £4.50. Thankfully you don't have to pay an entrance fee, but just buy tickets for the individual rides. So it only cost me £5... More

Came here about 6 years ago and hasn't really changed much. Wasn't that busy when first arrived and got our son a wristband for £18 which was good value for half term. Staff friendly and food and drink not expensive in the park. My son enjoyed himself but I did find that it looked a little fun down and could... More

Sadly expensive for what it is and very outdated, not really changed in the over 30 years of coming here.

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
