Set within 50 acres of enclosed coastal parkland and just 10mins from the popular seaside town of Great Yarmouth, Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park has been refurbished making it an even more vibrant place for a day out for all the family. With great discounts of over 25% when you book online and ample free parking, there really hasn't been a better time to visit the biggest theme park in the East of England. As part of our £3.5m investment plan we're introducing Marble Madness our FOURTH roller coaster and 10th new attraction in just 4 years! For the first time ever, Pleasurewood Hills will be home to FOUR roller coasters and we're convinced Marble Madness will provide thrills and spills fun for all the family! Day visitors will also have the opportunity to experience HoBs PiT - Our dark ride opened to critical acclaim in 2013 from both theme park experts and the leisure industry. The ride is the most advanced of its kind and mixes illusions with live performers to create a scare attraction and scare ride experience. - Now rated 12A by the BBFC. There's so much to explore and do, visitors can also jump onboard Wipeout, the tallest, fastest and most extreme roller coaster in the East of England! Get soaked on our Timber Falls log flume, plummet 60ft per second with a 5.5G force on the Jolly Roger Drop Tower or simply relax and enjoy fantastic shows with The Sea Lions and our Playful Parrots. Pleasurewood Hills also prides itself on offering good quality places to eat and drink on the park with the Merrier Mariner incorporating a new alfresco style Terrace Cafe and Bar, The Railway Tea Rooms, Flying Fish and Porky's Pantry. Where possible they use locally sourced fresh and healthy ingredients for a delicious choice of food and drinks to provide customers with value for money. At Pleasurewood Hills we guarantee you'll be greeted with a smile from our Guest Experience Super Heroes.

A famly fun day without breaking the bank!

A great day out for younger children, plenty to see and too. The shows are great, queues not long either. A little out of date in places but still great.

We had a brilliant day with family at Pleasurewood Hills, there's plenty for both adults and kids to do. Eating facilities were basic and could do with a revamp or perhaps allow a franchise to enter the park and provide reliable choices.

We had two mums, three older boys (21, 19 & 18) and two young girls, both 8, on the trip and we all had a great time. We stayed all day and no-one got bored or grumpy. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful (except for one man but there's always one!) and because it was a weekend early in... More

Visited today for my birthday with mates, to find a really old unattractive park that is really run down and shocking! They need to spend money on the park, not buy old street fair rides and add them to a park, that is falling down around their eyes! It's so funny, as they must be being taken over by a... More

This a great choice for a family day out and if you don't want to have to buy food there is a reasonable space in side the cafe. You can bring children that are about 5 but there isn't as much choice for them as older people. There are rides for the brave, for the thrilled and more if you... More

Totally awful place... Gone down hill and in need of a lot of work to make it presentable and looking like its in good working order, staff need some training on - how to be nice to customers instead of having a bad attitude.. As if they all hated working there. Some of the rides was not working, the rides... More

Was mostly looking forward to new ride hobs pit as seen a lot of reviews about it, wasn't too impressed myself. Sad to see the Disney ride and... More

My most recent visit here was pure disappointment. I used to go a lot when i was younger, and although it's quite expensive, it was generally a good day out if you took along a picnic. Unfortunately it now seems to be getting as though it needs major improvements and it has the worst customer care ever! I have contacted... More

Visited on bank holiday Monday with 5 other friends. Really easy for us to park the two cars we arrived in and easy access to the park from the car (not that far to walk) Plenty of benches for us to sit down and eat. All the rides were acceptional. Apart from a few which kept breaking down every time... More
