A small kids entertainment park with the usual rides and amusements. Difficult to walk around if it is crowded. Buy tokens to use the rides. Prices are cheap and will not break the bank. Rides are a little dated, however kids will still have fun.

This is fantastic for small children, but what I liked most was that they let me, age 61, ride the Snails, which |I remembered from visits with my parents in the 60s

Totally worth it because my son enjoyed it and it bought back memories from when i used to holiday with my parents. Everything is pretty old... More

Not too bad value for money wise but a very limited selection of rides and they felt a bit well worn and rickety. Good for a cheap laugh I suppose

The rides there are quite good, bit old, and sometimes a bit pricey, little children can go on everything with an adult, although avoid the turning ones as they are quite harsh and our little one did not like it. The snail ride was actually pretty good as well. Make sure you buy a bundle of tokens you will use... More

Took my 4 year old grandson here and he loved it so much we had to go back two days running. The place itself looks a little tired and dated but they certainly know how to cater to their chiosen audience. All the rides only cost £1.00 per person and you have to buy tokens rather than deal in cash... More

Okay so it's not the greatest place on earth but as a family with an 8 month old active baby we found it was a good afternoon out. My daughter was able to ride on most rides with me and my partner and she really enjoyed looking and watching the rides and also riding on them. It's cheap and a... More

We took out two toddlers here, and now they want to keep going back. The loved feeling like bog kids and going on the rides. The especially love the Snails. All the big rides are paid for by tokens, and its best to buy a bag of them at the kiosk, £10 gets you 12 and £20 get you 25... More

Joyland is ideal if you have younger children and mine have always loved a visit here, particularly on the snails, which have been in Yarmouth since I was little!
