It's a good few years since I've been here & so I didn't know what to expect... but all the old classics are still there, including my personal favourite "the snails". Now I wasn't too sure if it would be frowned upon being in your 30's on a snail ride, but my first observation was that I was not the... More

Went here on the warmest and driest day of the bank holiday and it was busy but no real queues for the rides. My daughter loved it. Watch out for the ignorant people standing in the middle of the pathways chatting so you can't get passed, let alone if you have a pushchair.

My son is usually scared of all rides! Even the rides outside arcades, but he loved it here as adults can ride too. I'm a biggish girl but managed to fit on the snail ride, and it's only £1 per person.

We visited two evenings and it was the perfect place for a 6 year old to enjoy the fair. We spent £10 on tokens and this lasted bost nights.

Very fun for the kids and excellent value for money. Rides may be a little bumpy but adds to the fun. Mostly suitable for families with younger children but highly recommended

The rides in Joyland are aimed at the younger children. My favourite is The Snails. I rode on this ride when I was a wee girl,my 2 daughters have ridden on them and now my granddaughter has too. Very popular with the children.

Went here as a child and have many happy memories. Every time we go to Yarmouth, me and my husband take our children (aged 11 and 6) to Joyland. We all enjoy the rides. Exceptional value, still only a £1 a ride. Bonus tokens when you buy a bag for £10. Never get rid of those snails!!!
