A late review but we went back in November 2013 for the Hallowe'en event - Pleasurewood Chills. We had a wonderful day; the scare mazes were excellent, there was loads of additional attractions for the event and the atmosphere was brilliant. This was the first time the park tried this type of a Hallowe'en event and it was excellent to... More

Myself, a friend and our three children visited the park today. I have visited the park for years and years and have thoroughly enjoyed our time there . However today we only managed three rides. We arrived at 10.30am and left at 6pm. The queues were horrendous.Many rides were operating with empty carriages and the last ride we managed (log... More

Sad to say the Hills are now very dated. Some rides date 30 years, I rember from my very first visit.I live in Lowestoft and wouldn't recommend traveling from far to visit. It's Ok to pass a few hours. I think it is over priced. Although there is very minamal queuing for the available rides. Toilet facilities within the park... More

Great place to go and you can use Tesco Clubcard vouchers which make the day more affordable. Take a picnic as the food, like all places, is expensive and limited.

Spent a full day here with my 8,7,5,3 year old children. Used Tesco vouchers to get in so great value. Plenty of rides for everyone to go on, enjoyed the shows. Would recommend you go when it's not raining as there are no indoor attractions.

I visited here with my daughter, sis in law and niece we had a good day on rides and the rain didn't put us off. however, staff where miserable, didn't look like they wanted to be there, the food was disgusting and tasted funny for the price, £16.50 for child's cheesy pasta, lasagne and side salad, and two drinks. Really... More

brilliant day out for our kids. our smallest only just reached 1m so we were sold a wrist band and told if she got denied to go on the rides we could claim our money back, which was very kind. She got measured again twice and was allowed on everything she could. Happy times!!

Visited here for the 1st time whilst visiting family in Great Yarmouth and was really impressed. We were a party of 10- 6 adults and 4 children aged 5, 11, 12 and 14 and we were really pleased that there was something for everyone! The parrot show was my particular highlight and it was just the right length, good quality... More

Went just recently with my best friend for the day and it was brilliant! It is definitely the sort of place for families or those with younger children, but we enjoyed it just as much with just us, without any children! We booked tickets in advance for the day we were going and so saved about £3 each per ticket,... More

This was our first visit here and found that we could very easily spend the whole day here without wishing to leave the site. It was not "Alton Towers" but we weren't expecting it to be and got the next best thing. Entry price and food prices were reasonable, and it was possible to take a picnic if desired. The... More
