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.

My wife had really fond childhood memories of Pleasurewood Hills and the leaflets we picked up seemed to show some great rides and attractions. We took our two children aged 4 and 6 for what turned out to be a rather disappointing and expensive day out. My son was very excited by the rather space age looking Hyperdrive ride that... More

I visited with my 8yr old and 13 yr old daughters and husband! Good selection of rides for all aged groups young to older. The park is in good repair and looked freshly painted and care is taken to keep the park fresh and pleasing to the eye with planting schemes around the park! Plenty to do in a day... More

As we hadn't been to pleasurewood hills for 3yrs we thought we would revisit a local attraction as oposed from travelling a further distance, what a mistake! The park was practically unchanged in that time with the "newer" attractions looking like they had been plonked wherever and still very much"under construction"although on entrance one ride was stated as closed most...

We came for a day out whilst at the local haven site and had a fantastic time . Only issue I had was the food menus in the places we found didn't cater for allergies very well but we are used to that. Best part of the day for my daughter was meeting woody whilst her brothers and dad were... More

A good day out with something for everyone and you will have more fun if you try everything. The rides were there for everyone to have a go on and although we had to queue for some rides it wasn't for long and waiting time was reasonable for the amount of people on site. The staff were particularly helpful and... More

We went on the Easter weekend, a few days after it re-opened. As a few other reviewers have said the whole park looks very dated and in need of a clean, repair and re-painting - all of it minor cosmetic stuff. I found it really hard to believe that they still needed to test and maintain rides after being closed... More

Decided to go to this park over Easter school holidays, which actually turned out to be a good choice. Quite empty, maybe this was normal or just that it was a cold and windy day and most families stayed away. The park its self is average. Some rides are just not worth it, and so not up to standard. Others,... More

Walked from Gunton Hall to pleasure wood hills on Easter sunday, the party of twelve of us found it very expensive even at OA P rates as its not a patch on other theme parks not worth a visit only rides fit for teenagers go to Great Yarmouth for a family day out .
