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.

This place is in desperate need of an update. Took my kids here and I do not think anything has been updated, replaced or renewed since I was last here almost 8 years ago! To me it is only a matter of time before something goes horribly wrong here. It is honestly the worst place I have ever been. The... More

Good to watch but pricy usually by token equivalent to £2 a ride, good to watch others especially on some of the bigger rides

The place is very run down and rides are over priced especially for the younger ones. Not a lot of places to sit and rest which is a must at 8 months pregnant. Didn't purchase any food so cannot comment on that. Will not rush back.

We visited Great Yarmouth with three children and liked the fact that the pleasure beach is wrist bands and any adults who are merely spectators do not have to buy a wrist band. We had toyed with the idea of going to another theme park in the area but as neither adult was able to ride anything we would have... More

Took the kids and they all loved it. The price for the wrist bands was very good value especially booking them online. All in all a very good day out for the whole family.
