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.

Love coming here especially for the roller coaster. It looks old and rickety which adds to the thrill. The atmosphere is great. Love the log ride . Beware those standing watching from the side even you'll get wet (haha) They is a drying machine. You can pay for tokens or get a wrist band. Plenty of children's rides some have... More

Isn't bad the price is about average but boy can it do with updating. Some rides have been here since I was a kid and they look it really dated . Very few modern rides and those that are here are very expensive

Its a great day out to keep the kids busy for a few hours but unless you are going on the rides yourself then you may want to find a way to entertain yourself as its a little difficult to find for adults. Apart from a little dullness for us would recommend it to families

The wristbands are good value. Great rides for all ages. Get the wristbands after 5pm to get a cheaper deal.

Hasn't changed much in years but still good. Roller coaster is amazing and snails are sweet. Food and drink reasonably priced. Don't understand why it shuts at 9pm in height of the season and why its only open July to beginning of September.

We come to Yarmouth a lot and it's great for kids and teens. However they could do so much to the place to change up the rides and the water slide looks horrendous, they could build a theme around it to make it more interesting. It's been the same rides for years and a bit boring now. I love the... More

Excellent static funfair for all the family. The 1930's wooden roller coaster is unique and worth waiting for (this was approximately a 20 minute queue) We visited in August 2016 with clubcard vouchers and spent all day riding with wristbands. The park seems to be well maintained, clean and tidy. Plenty of rides for everyone to enjoy.

If you get your tickets in advance it's a lot cheaper but I still got that value for money at full price because it wasn't too busy so we can get on everything
