Overview
More
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.

A lovely afternoon. Best ride was the wooden roller coaster, although there are lots more rides on the park. Definatly worth the money for a wrist band. Excellent day, would definatly go back.

Lots of rides, very expensive. Would've cost us over £160 to buy wrist bands, so we bought a few tokens, rides cost alot of tokens each, therefore moved on to joyland as was alot cheaper for 6 children.
