Type: Amusement & theme parks, Amusement Parks
Owner description: 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.

The best thing about our pleasure beach as it stands today is the roller coaster. It's an oldie but a goodie. The rest of the park is over priced for what's there. It needs an over haul to bring it back to how it once was. There's too many little individual stalls,they need some more big thrill rides.

Wrist bands on and go for it! This is great place and my son loves it to bits. Great rides and great price. Staff are friendly and it just needs a little TLC in places but apart from that it's superb. Rumours are they are building another section but it just needs the original part invested in first.

If you visit Great Yarmouth with kids of any age, make an effort to get you some vouchers to make this more affordable as it is well worth the visit. Our boys of 5 and 7 loved the slides but my personal favourite was the old wooden roller coaster. There is a good variety of rides and food outlets that... More
