Overview
More
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.

Staff were mostly friendly, and rides for my daughter were great, the one downside is with other seafront resorts I've been to, you pay for a toddler ticket and then the adult ticket can be transferred between the adults so that one adult doesn't have...More

Plenty of rides for big kids and small kids, just a bit annoying adults have to pay aswell as small children on the rides making it expensive. The 4d attraction was fun. Staff were friendly

Had a 15% voucher so used this for our little one for her wristband. Worked out well as she is just over 1.1m, so she cannot go on all the big rides. We purchased 20 pounds of vouchers so we accompany her on the ones...More

Good fun but a little bit run down, lost money in a machine that was powered up but obviously broken, did report it but was told to go and speak to someone at the dodgems to sort it. Good fun for half a day.

Booked wristbands online in advance and paid about £15 each. Very good value considering the amount of rides we went on. The staff who operate the rides deserve a mention - with no exceptions they were all extremely helpful,friendly and happy !!! Great fun.

Fair selection of rides. Dont like the fact the wristbands are in age groups rather than height. You may be of a certain age but not want to go on all the rides for 'your' age group. But most of all hated the fact that...More
