The Pleasure Beach with its mixture of high-octane rides and traditional attractions sits at the top of Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile dominating the seafront skyline with its famous Skydrop. Spread over nine acres, the Pleasure Beach offers huge family fun, full-throttle white knuckle rides to exhilarate and thrill, water attractions to catch your breath and fun rides to keep the children happy for hours. Our roller coaster has been the star attraction since 1932 and is still a crowd puller today. More than 1.1 million visitors enjoyed the Pleasure Beach experience in 2013, confirming our place in the top 10 UK free entry amusement parks. And even more attractions, rides and innovations are on their way.

We had a great time at the pleasure beach. We bought the wristbands online which proved good value for the money and gave you free parking in their car park. Plenty of rides for all ages, food and drink available to buy at a reasonable price, and arcades to play. There are plenty of places to sit down and relax... More

Rides were OK, nothing to really get your pulse racing, but OK to while away an hour or two. No massive queues.

A wonderful to be had with the thrills and spills at the Pleasure Beach. Fun for all the family for a day of excitement. Take a trip on the roller coaster and look out across the North Sea, on a clear day you can see the Netherlands.

Parking along the seafront was very good, no problem at all on a Saturday. Lots of crazy golf, rides for small children also good rides for teens. Lots of seafood stalls and fish and chip outlets. We all enjoyed it. Would come again.

Ideal for toddlers to mid-teens. I recommend the bands for great value for money. My kids had a blast!

Excellent value for money with most smaller rides £1, don't be fooled by what you see on the huge roller coaster - it packs a punch
