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.

Been twice! Last time was in June 2015 and My family and I really enjoyed this day out! I love the old roller coaster and all of the different rides, there's many different rides for children (or even adults) of different ages! Quite a lot of choice for food and drink! Nice seafront as well :) would happily go again... More

This is well contained area for fun rides for all ages, food is available, there are special offers to go on all the rides or you can pay as you go, from the big dipper, dodgems and travel fair rides, you can spend the day there enjoying the music and sounds of a fun fair and lights.
