“GREAT YARMOUTH STILL HAS IT”
4 of 5 bubbles Review of The Pleasure Beach

The Pleasure Beach
Certificate of Excellence

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.

“GREAT YARMOUTH STILL HAS IT”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“A fun day out”

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.

“What a rip-off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

You'd be much better off visiting Pleasurewood Hills! The Pleasure Beach is expensive, the rides are old and tired and the queues are very long

“Good old traditional seaside attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

The Pleasure Beach is a typical British seaside attraction - a real 'kiss me quick' experience. It could do with a lick of paint and some investment but the rides are great, particularly for children, who are well catered for. I would recommend buying wristbands for unlimited rides as the use of tokens can quickly get expensive.
