Great attraction on the seafront in Yarmouth! So much history there and there happy to let Adults on to bring back memories flooding! Still £1 a ride, that's brill and is open all the time! Better than the pleasure beach!

I've been coming to Joyland since I was small and although not much has changed (since the '70's!) its still brilliant for children. The snails, roller coaster and Tyrolean tubs are great for all ages.
