The park is very small and therefore can get really busy and crowded. So a little stressful getting a pram through! Staff take photos on the snails and rollercoaster.. However if you see its a young young child please make an attempt to get them to look at the camera! Every time we have a photo either we are looking... More

Great time. Lots of rides available for our 4 year old. :-) looks a little dated. All rides 1 token, £1, per person. Spent a couple of fun hours here. Next to pier, donkey rides and beach

Great rides for younger children, However, most of the rides need adult accompaniment, therefore costing £2 per ride. My children loved this fun park some 30 years ago, but fortunately it was far cheaper in those days - all of 8p each per ride! Nowadays, with the grandchildren, it costs an arm and a leg to visit!

We have made loads of memories here with my 3 children over the last 10 years. All of them have enjoyed the rides. I'd say it's ideal for under 10s and a bag of 25 tokens is £20. Each ride is 1 token per person. My 3 have all loved the snail ride. My 13 year old finds it boring... More

I have been visiting Great Yarmouth all my life and each year we reminisce here. The rides are excellent value for money and ideal for under 10's ( and the young at heart). The snails remain my firm favourite. Other reviewers comment on the site is in need of updating but I love the traditional feel!! Keep up the great... More

Two rides were tried out at Great Yarmouth's Joyland. The snail ride and the spinning tubs. Although this small fairground is aimed at children, adults can partake and reclaim their youth. I advise one snail per person, unless extremely thin, as there is not a lot of room for adults. It is a short, yet rickety ride and a souvenir... More
