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!

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!

This place is OK however if you like big roller coasters then go to Thorpe park as you will get your moneys worth. This place is good if you have young children and if you are not a fan of going upside down as most of the rides apart from one stay the right way up! The down sides are... More

Went on the last day of the park being open for the firework display and as a birthday treat for my daughter who brought her friend. Weather very windy and we had about an hour of rain but it didn't dampen our enthusiasm. The park might be a bit tired and yes some of the rides did breakdown but for... More

Used my Tesco vouchers so price was not a concern to me. A lot there for all age groups but not that much walking but things weren't that crammed together either, strangely. Went first Sunday of half term, no queues, all rides had own operator so can't complain. Whole place has a bit of a tired feeling in terms of... More

Took my children here in the summer holidays. Half the best rides were not working. I expected it to be a really good place but it wasn't. Not many places to eat. Staff were rude. I'd only go back if I got cheap tickets

We went on the Saturday of the Pleasurewood Chills week, just after Halloween. Nice compact size park, your not walking for ages to get anywhere. The special Halloween attractions were very well done. Carriage 13 was the best, then Infections and last was Hobs Pit. I guess Hobs Pit was a disappointment I guess as it had so much hype.... More

Visited with three generations and all had a good time. Good variety of attractions in a pleasant environment. Some longish queues for the bigger rides but not too bad considering it was half-term week. Plenty to do to fill a whole day. Was impressed by the pleasant (mainly very young) staff. We were lucky that the weather was very good... More

This was my first visit here with my husband (an avid theme park fan!) & my 4 year old son (mini thrill seeker in the making) we visited here as a day trip out with our nearly 5 year old son whilst on holiday for the half term in Norfolk. We saved on costs by using Tesco clubcard vouchers which... More
