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. « less

We came August 2013. My daughter was 2 at the time so wasn't much for her but she did go on a few rides. Me and my partner enjoyed the rides and food places around it. Definitely a day out recommended to teens adults without young children under 3) x

Well worth going to the far end of Yarmouth for. £20 for a waist band and ride all day. Nice little bar if you fancy a pint and plenty of food outlets.

Great day out with the family. There is plenty of fun to be had by all ages. Even in the height of summer, the queues weren't that long; you could get on a ride almost within a 5 minute wait.

Not good value if you when compared to larger theme parks. OK if you just want to go on a couple of rides and walk round.

I swam in the sea on 4th October 2014. It was 20 degrees and sunny, and I had a lovely time. This resort is an amazing relic of traditional English seaside culture.

Visited the pleasure beach on an off peak day and the hours were limited but thankfully the queues were small. We got 2 adult wristbands at disabled rate as buying tokens can get used up very quickly. Most of the rides are old fashioned including the rollercoaster which is one of the 1st of its kind in the world and... More

Good day out with some good rides, slightly expensive and can be done in half a day but wristband is a good idea so you can come and go as you please.

I took my grandsons aged 7 and 3 to the pleasure beach. Rides look very tired and dated. Probably wouldnt go again. The poor horses also looked very tired and didnt appear to have water available
