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.

Great fun for all, I like the fact I could go into the site with my grand children and not have to pay as I don't go on the rides.

Went here when down camping with the kids and had a great time on the multitude of rides available on the wristband system. The place is clean and attended too but like most UK seaside venues is in desperate need of updating as everything is antiquated (but clean). The major drawback of this place is the traffic getting into the... More

My son is autistic. He doesn't look any different from any other child but he does have additional needs. When requesting to enter the roller coaster, I was questioned quite aggressively by the ride operator. I was asked why he couldn't queue. I asked whether the chap understood about autism. He scoffed and said, "yeah I know all about it....... More

Came here with my 3 children, ages 19, 11 and 7. We bought wristbands using tesco vouchers so saved quite a bit. We had a good time at the pleasure beach and went on most of the rides - the roller coaster being our favourite. Before we left we decided to watch the 4D film - my only complaint was... More

Took a 4 and 6 year old. My son is 1.1 metres tall - measured on several rides and allowed to go on without problem. Then not allowed on by some members of staff - measuring him in all kinds of weird ways to make him shorter than he is. I even spoke to a 'manager' who did his best... More

This was a great day excellent value for money here as they close at 9. Hardly any queues. The people working here were really friendly, from the people in the ticket office to the people selling the burgers they were all lovely people. The only downside was paying for small children only to find they couldn't ride most of the... More
