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.

Took a trip here in the evening after spending the morning and afternoon at Pleasurewood Hills. Me and everyone else in my party booked our wristbands online for the discounted evening price which came to just over £11 which if you plan to stay for several hours and try out a lot of the rides we like did is very...

Took the grandchildren for the day, they absolutely loved it. Worth getting a wrist band as it works out cheaper than paying for each individual ride if you are going to be there over 3 hours. Be aware there could be queuing, but the longest we queued was 15 mins.

Had a good time here. Decided tokens would be more worth it as we wasn't going to be going on too many rides-wasn't cheap but then, what is these days... Went on the Big one (a.k.a scenic railway rollercoaster) for the first time and it was so fun I had to go on again! Definitely a must ride if you... More

Was a little sceptical about this place but am very glad we went. Bands were a little expensive at £60 for 3 but the kids and I had fun. A good range of rides for all ages which we took advantage of for hours, but the roller coaster needs work (it was rickety and hurt my son) but enjoyable. Toilets... More

Visited a few days ago one evening, the place needs serious updating, half the rides were not working properly, one of the rides was being tested out by the employees and the whole time they were just mucking around, most of them looked like sulky teenagers who would rather be somewhere else judging from the looks on their faces, shouting...

The park was ok, but no prober checks on the rollercoster, the ride operaters did not check that the bars where lock before the ride started, very slack for health and safety. Riders was jumping out of the coaster car before the ride became to a complete stop, very dangerous and the ride operaters did nothing, very worrying went on... More

We had good fun here. My 8 year old forced me to go on the log flume and he loved it. I didn't at all!! The other rides are great for kids too and we went on all the ones he could as he is only 1.2m tall. There was a little kids ride with fire engine, train, bikes etc... More
