Attraction details
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.

“Ride the rollercoaster”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

A must for all rollercoaster enthusiasts as it has one of only nine remaining brakeman-operated coasters left in the world. It was also used in the video to 'House of Fun' by Madness!

Expect to find all the usual other rides there too. Either buy tokens for individual rides or for unlimited rides buy a wristband. Admittedly, there are better theme parks around the country but this one has plenty of seaside charm and appeal for kids of all ages.

“Fun!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Buy the "family Offer" tokens at the kiosk as you enter. Weoriginally only bought ten, only to find we needed more! With the family offer, you get 5 tokens free. Rollercoaster is great for family giggles!!

“GREAT YARMOUTH STILL HAS IT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Nice to find a Victorian Seafront that has been able to keep up a good appearance and attract folk to enjoy traditional attractions. Could not see the sea untill we walked through the commercial properties but there is a big sandy beach when you do. Neat gardens and service road for beach train and horse carriag rides good. side road parking and pay to park on front limited.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

I had a birthday day out for my son and his friends here. There are some good rides and a 4D cinema. You can buy a good selection of fast food here.
