I have fond memories of here stretching back 35 years or more, used to go here with my mum, dad brother and my late grandparents. You couldn't visit yarmouth without a ride on the snails even back then, and even today they bring the memories flooding back. Joyland itself has not really changed and is still a nice visit, most...

I recall in the distant past a nice trip on the snails with my nan. And thats the only positive i took from our visit here. 30 years on and with three children in tow it must have been my nostalgic side that made me spend £20 on tokens. The rides were mmm not good and even the snails were... More

This is an ideal place for the infants, not expensive, plenty of rides for all to go on, including the famous Snails and going inside the Ark is well worth a visit for everyone.

This hasn't really changed too much since I was a child just the odd one or two rides have been changed/added and they also have an amusement arcade, but on the whole the snails are the greatest for adults and children both, I don't know what it is about them but you can ask any adult and they still get...

You can spend about one to one and a half hours here, as you have tokens for the rides, which you have to purchase, so maybe you need to eke out the time, as some of the rides are a bit the same. We find it best to tell the children to pick five rides that THEY would like to... More

Every time we go on holiday to Yarmouth we make a point of going to Joyland, £20 for 25 tokens which is 25 rides = a couple of hours of fun for my two kids and a bit of peace of me.

Joy land is great for little ones, fairly prices rides, tokens are £1 each and most of the rides are 1 token. A variety of rides slow and fast, though the staff were not the happiest.
